Good ideas. I mostly agree with you that praying is harmful, though I understand why some types of people really need it (destitute, just lost a child, etc.) It can also be very selfish. I remember hearing of one church that would print a picture from a catalog of some office equipment they needed. Then they asked everyone to pray for god to bring it to them in some way. Lo and behold someone in the parish would donate it, or take up a collection, and there you go, God answers prayers! Just pitiful.
