Why do people start prayer threads on the OT?


The OT has the well deserved reputation of being full of a-holes, a great many of whom profess to not even believe in God

If you are truly seeking prayer then why not go find a message board of prayer warriors? As opposed to receiving a bunch of "prayers sent" posts

I just would really like to understand the logic behind it

Everyone has their way of dealing with things. And FWIW most prayer threads go pretty well on here. Until Rag gets all pissy at least

If religion involved logic there would be no religion.

Because people have an e-relationship with this board, and want to share the experience with their e-friends

Most prayer threads are fine. Only a handful of people actually go in them and actually act like a-holes. It's easy to gloss over those posts and see the many, many other posts from people that seem genuine. Everyone handles these situations differently. I just think people that disagree would just keep it to themselves a little more.

If it helps someone deal with grief or is their way of feeling supported during mourning, it isn't an inconvenience to me.

apparently you're the stupid one if you don't see a difference between asking for prayers from the OT, which we know is

And asking a board comprised of people who are actually on the site specifically to pray for people

Why not? People develop relationships on here, even if they never meet.

Most of the time it's to get attention. No offense to anyone but I really don't care if your 80 year old grandpa died or your friend was stupid enough to OD.

There are a few exceptions that are pretty genuine, I think. Respublica88's original thread about Alex was about asking for blood to potentially save his kid's life and through that people have gained an interest in his family and many truly are hoping it works out this time around. His "prayer" thread is a good way to keep those people updated. It also seems to serve as an outlet for him.

It's simple really, they're asking for prayers from people who are willing to pray for them. Tough being a female huh?
