We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Religions have robbed certain items from the public domain, including prayer. Why do fellows forget a prayer can be "an earnest hope or wish" with nothing to do with deities?

I wasn't surprised when I learned that 6% of atheists and agnostics pray every day, and 11% do it weekly and monthly. (https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/pray-me/201309/do-atheists-pray)

What is worth mentioning is to whom the prayer is addressed: not to gods in the first place! And most probably, not loudly or ironically as one of these women is doing--if it's not each one of them! [See attachment.]

Self-talk/autosuggestion is a form of prayer that affects all people, irrespective of their religion, race, sex, age, or the like.

Praying, like dreaming, is often an unconscious act. You remember only a tiny tip of the iceberg!

I think Praying has become ingrained in us. Even I an atheist will keep my fingers crossed when I watch my football team, Chelsea play in the hope that they win. I know what I'm doing is daft and I try to stop myself, but I always do it. As for praying I'm certain I don't but that doesn't mean I don't mutter encouragements under my breath when watching the game. That's as far as it goes with me.  

Thanks, Stephen for your input. Keep praying for your Chelsea because it does something. Your prayer may do nothing for the team--because even the losers have prayed--but such a prayer keeps your expectations up. And this hope for a better next is a vital ingredient in the life sauce!

As an athiest there is nothing to pray to.

I have never prayed.

I don't even with upon a star.

History is something to look at, but not worship.

Don't you ever make "an earnest hope or wish"? What do you call that, Chris?

I don't make an "earnest hope or wish."

I provide love and caring.

That's all we have.

My Aunt is dying of fourth stage cancer.

Prayers don't work, but love and caring does.

I practically don't know what to say now that would help. But I know your courage and don't doubt that you'll cope with whatever comes, because it's all part of life anyway. One sure thing is that I'll pray neither for your dear aunt nor for you. Prayers won't help anyway! I'd like to learn how I can express or transmit that "love and caring" though. Great day, Chris.

Actions speak louder than words.

Many don't want to pay taxes to the CDC, or Medicine Sans Frounteers.

Ebola, or the Zika Virus is a plague that threatens humanity.

Previously The Plague, or SARS, the flue of 1918 resulted in many deaths.

Prayer doesn't work.

We need money for research.

Right.

Sure
