re: Why do people start prayer threads on the OT?


I just don't get the point

I will never start a thread on the OT asking for prayer. FACT

I'll get on my church's prayer request list, I'll ask my family. I MAY even go so far as to post it on fb

But to ask for and think you are sincerely receiving prayer from the OT is just beyond my comprehension

I agree. I don't see the purpose of starting them other than attention, but ill never be an a-hole to someone looking for a prayer

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.

His "prayer" thread is a good way to keep those people updated. It also seems as an outlet for him.


What's the difference?

ETA: Why are the rules different for everyone else?

Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. I understand your perspective and you have a right to think that. I think others that go in and shite on those threads are a little ridiculous.

Same reason you post 99% of the shite you post. Because they want attention.

But, you will start a thread about your son's lesion to seek medical advice from a bunch of people who are NOT dermatologists? Even if you asked for the advice of dermatologists, why not go to a more reputable site?

Some people feel better if people they do not know say they are praying for them.

Then if it doesn't go the right way "it was just a part of his plan anyway".

I don't get it.

They should be moved to the help board since they are technically asking for help from a higher power

Why would a person want that kind of attention?

You wouldn't do it because you probably don't see the point. Others try it out and see if they actually get comfort from it or think prayer works. It's pretty straight forward IMO.

Paige, I've thought the very same thing many times.

However, the people that respond to the prayer threads usually seem pretty genuine - it shows how pricks like 228Tiger are really just a vocal minority.

re: Why do people start prayer threads on the OT?


Paige - I don't have a clearly defined answer. All I know is that when I started my first thread about Alex, I met several fathers on here who had a son with the same congenital heart defect. Their emails, encouragement as well as everyone else's truly helps me when I am truly am in need.

Sometimes words and especially prayers help to quell the pain. Even if they are read and not spoken.

Truly is a good question though. I suppose it's as arbitrary as starting a babe thread. We all have human needs and gravitate to certain things. I enjoy gravitating to prayer and positive thoughts. Makes me feel closer, albeit inches to miles, to Alexander

Now I feel stupid and embarrassed. I thought when ya'll said 'prayers sent' you meant it. I had no idea people were making fun.

Carolina-Girl I was just going to tell you to start a prayer thread in the political board but their are even more atheist a holes there.

Note to self: never start a prayer thread at TD 'prayers sent' is them making fun. Ya'll carry on in doing whatever it is you do. Seriously. Sorry I even questioned.
