        I strongly doubt you're in position to judge that (at least in any way I'd value), given your behavior and your stance. You don't seem very mature, so why you passing judgement on most others should be taken seriously?
        >And why the frick are "Glad" butthole??
        Because while not particularly religious, I lived quite a few decades, learned and grew up enough by now to understand the importance and value prayer brings to lives of many.
        >do you want the world to be full of immature idiots?? what is wrong with you??
        What is wrong with you? You speak out of childish outrage, thinking the mere act of prayer immature, when - want it or not - it was an expression of belief and personal qualities of not only the smallest and most humble, but also the greatest from among humans thorough history. Leaders, inventors, philosophers - coming from various cultures, subscribing to various religions, but expressing their faith in some manner that one could call a prayer- and many of them attributing their genius to their faith and its exploration, at that, too.

        You do you. I don't care whether you maintain any faith, whether you aspire to anything greater than yourself or you're just a living automaton, consuming and spewing shit on the internet. But you being on the verge of sperging out and not grasping the above while calling others immature makes you, ironically enough, seem quite childish and ignorant.

            Also, a prayer doesn't need to be the stereotypical recitation of some words. You direct your intent toward divine, contemplate, express your thoughts, hopes, gratitudes and pleas. Some religions do their religious observances and reach toward their deities through dance, others use mantras, recipe holy psalms, meditate, perform some rituals - there's many forms but the basic definition of prayer would to to address the divine (represented by particular deity/deities or not) in word OR thought.
            Yes, to the point that ironic enough, agnostic occultists seeking divinity perform a sort of prayer not much different from that of, say, some buddhist or daoist at times. Cosmology differs, intent directed toward the divine remains.

            Did the buddha in any sutta say anything of prayer? You can go ahead and mention things that buddhists do, that to me doesn't mean a thing, like "Awgatha" this is a burmese popular thing, like I said: show a sutta where the buddha tell his disciples to pray.

            - your idea of the prayer seems to be stuck on very shallow, ignorant understanding of "prayer is just reciting things". That's not how most religions understand it even if it's how some look to those who don't share or understand their faith. But it is shallow and misleading lack of understanding, like declaring that using computer (be it for browsing, programming, whatever) is just staring at the glowy rectangle and poking the keys of the keyboard.

            that's not how buddhism and other dharmic religions understand it, it is how christianity understands it yes

            we are having a fundamental problem of understanding here, "buddhist/hindu prayer" is not prayer as a christian understands it. For a christian prayer is humiliation and begging, for a buddhist/hindu prayer is communion with the divine. I don't thing that the term "prayer" should be employed in these cases, and that's where our misunderstanding is arising from.

            I disagree. Even by the basis of this sutta presented, buddhists are taught to direct their thoughts toward divine and its representation. Even where you seek it, even inside or outside is irrelevant to this point.
            >we are having a fundamental problem of understanding here, "buddhist/hindu prayer" is not prayer as a christian understands it
            Partially agreed, partially not. It's certainly not a prayer in the form practiced by christians, but that's why the definition provided earlier and reiterated now, a simple definition that defines prayer in general, not describing any form of prayer in particular. And it's not some newfangled, obscure definition either.

            christians are taught to pray on their knees to a god that has damned them with original sin but decided to save them as long as they believe in a random israelite he tortured some thousands years ago. and then maybe they won't burn in hell forever.

            buddhists pray to realise their own potental divinity and peace.

            You talk about doctrine and the form of prayer. You're very biased in your description of said doctrine but funnily enough, you point out yourself:
            >christians are taught to pray
            >buddhists pray
            I don't care particularly much what you think about either religion, though I disagree with some of your characterizations. But that's beside the point, my point was about prayer, its importance and prevalence anywhere. The point now seems to be supported firmly.

            Personally, I agree with you. When I was young though, I never got in the habit of prayer despite being a baptized and confirmed methodist. It just didn't make sense to me that an all knowing God would benefit from my prayer. It took me a long time to realize it was more about benefiting yourself.

      What you're posing is a problem of maturation due to lack of thought. While prayer is one method of solving this as it requires you to reflect and think about your life and the lives of others, it isn't the only way to go about it. I think that simply spending time in thought would be enough to allow people to mature and that really just makes it even more sad that they aren't.

      Agree. You don't need to pray to transcend.
      Thinking of good staff is form of prayer. Pray can be equal to meditation is all have something in-common.

            christian prayer IS begging to a imaginary friend, while I can understand praying to a deity like the pagans and Tibetan buddhists do, christianity in specific makes prayer useless

            That's also somewhat wrong. The words in the prayer one recites tend to be of thanks, adoration, plea for forgiveness or boons to be had but like buddhist mantras or whatever else, proper prayer is not just words you recite without thought. Again, you direct the thoughts and the intent toward the divine and you're free (and even encouraged) to reach with more than the words you spreak. That's why the prayer can also hold no words and still be one and why christian priests also practice contemplation.
            Not all cosmologies will be valid to everyone, some stress certain things followers of others will reject but make sure to avoid ignorance and such overt simplifications - while I am sure there's many thoughtless christians who really only go through the motions (and there's many supposed followers of other religions who do the same) it's not expected standard for the religion itself. If it'd be all there is to christianity, it'd never become a major, organized religion. It'd never even grow enough to be heard of.

          by the way if you are a parent that will be a giant tragedy because you are still a child. as yourself said "Is it selfish for a child to ask their father for help?" so you are still a child? what are you doing having kids?
