In this todays world,social site are indeed like a necessity to keep in touch with many at the same time, and how it bring a great impact to human kind.. Many years before, we have to see or talk to someone to get to know them. But with todays technology we dont actually have to know the person to read their personality. Its easy to get rough idea of someone character by just reading at their personal sites.. as easy as that!! Even more funny,now, some of us, post their prays on social sites.. Are they hoping for a miracles where god gonna "like" that status or what??

Its not about like, for me, its about sharing that faith and giving that motivation for the people who need it in hard times. I don't do this for strangers on social sites nor would I in real life go up to someone and begin praying like that. Its likely someone I know well if I share it with them on a site. Though sometimes its better to just pray myself and not share it for all the world to see. This I do understand.

There is nothing wrong sharing general prays to others, it's actually meant for everyone, and no one wud judge a general prays, when someone post sumthing like dat, it looks like sharing of information. Becoz general prays are usually standard, so it must be learn.

General prayers or not, I think its okay mostly. So long as its the party of the thing you're praying for, or, someone you know who won't mind...

I don't like it.It's a bit cheap way to express one's beliefs.It's like praying in the virtual church.I know this guy who thinks that praying with the keyboard on the table and sandwich in one hand is cool.Doesn't look like a prayer to me, more like a game.But it's the new age lifestyle and there will be more and more of it in the future.

D way i look at it...It doesnt look sincere at all when a pray became a statement to publics..

I do post my little prayer on Facebook sometimes. But am not expecting it to be liked all the time. I just want to spread out a positive influence on people who might have been forgetting about God's existence. Not necessarily preaching, but at least just posting how grateful I am for all the blessing that I have received even if I feel that I am not worthy of all of them.

I respect your opinion n purpose of doing so. But when u post prays as status, it will no longer be a private communication between u n your creator.Dont u thinkso?It is just a statement that everybody get to reads and give their own opinion about it..

There are prayers in church that are with the full people hearing. Prayer doesn't always have to be just private communion with God. If there is a motive of just praying for the sake of praying and seeing the praises of man for it, that needs to stop right then and there.

I am not referring to general prayers. Almost all religion has its sacred place to pray rite? Mosque for d muslims, church for d christians, etc.. No matter how good technology can be, i doubt even in another 100years from now, there will no e-mosque or e-church or any other house of god can be converted as virtual.

yes, i find this a bit off too. i believe that religion is personal and i haven't done this. some people who post their prayers think that since the others are reading, they are praying with him/her too. usually when i open fb and i see only these posted on my friends' walls, i log out immediately.

"i believe that religion is personal and i haven't done this." The prayer is personal relationship between the human and his God , but I can clear things about my religion to others who don't know about its law , or they know wrong things about my religion .

And d best thing is she also responsed to all comment immediately, u know how dat type of pic will easily attracts frens concern.. Those are funny attention seekers.

:-D it looks funny when people do so.. Bt different people have different ways to react to same situation. They might think it as just another way of remembring their lord and it cant b claimed wrong. Some people might see the funny side of it.:-) As a half filled glass of water might luk half empty to some.. While this glass situation has only two conditions, posting prayers on social sites may have many such thoughts behind it which differ frm individual to individual

Yep.. Individual.. its funny are my own individual opinion of that type of character... I.e There's differences when someone post, "O god.. Please save people in Gaza " with.. "O god.. Im so weak, please be mercy on me"..

Yes, social networks have xchanged our lives really much. As for online praying, on the wall... I find it a bit tacky, to be honest. Religion should be an intimate thing, not anything someone shares everyone. I think the people who post their pras on either post everything because they are OCD, or thy wanna seem even more religious, because it's their biggest aim to seem that.

I agree. Religion is a private thing between a believer and their God or their church. I would go as far as to say that this type of thing cheapens prayer as some type of craze rather than meaningful communication.

Not so sure about the prayer bit but social networks do provide a great means of talking to people when before you could not do that so easily.
