Translation: people mumbling in a group having no effect whatsoever on anything, ever.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35271484

Oh, no, not without any effect.

I have actually visited some of these chatty female "prayer groups", and they are very, very effective -- at spreading the most malicious gossip about others, all under the righteous-sounding cloak of praying for others.

Please lift up my brother in law Jim Bob for prayer!

Yes, sister, and what does he need release from bondage for?

*sniffle* He is under Satan's grasp for financial difficulty.

Certainly, we can lift him up for deliverance from financial bondage! How bad is it? Does he gamble?

*sob* Uh huh *sob* Jim Bob gambled most of my sister Sally Sue's inheritance over at the TomTom Casino, and he spent the rest on that big busted gal who works there, the one with the tramp stamp who hangs out with those Clancy brothers... *sob*

The Clancy brothers who got picked up for meth trafficking last year, but their lawyers got them off?

*sob* Yes, and I think Jim Bob is into all of it with them, and sleeping with that gal *sob*

Yes, sister we must pray for him! I'll call up Jolleen and Kathleen to pray for him as well. What's that trashy gal's name? We need to pray for her deliverance as well!

Now here is a person who understands the corruption that is epidemic running in Christian circles.
 Quoting: Wingedlion27

Although not a Christian myself, I am open-minded enough to realize the theraputic value of people praying for qualities like strenth, wisdom, clarity -- sincere prayers -- for their own selves to connect to the Greater Wisdom.

Believe it or not, I have no reluctance to pray alongside someone seeking strength, as long as it is sincere.

But as an easygoing Unitarian, I have several times been invited (perhaps best translated as 'proselytised') into visiting both Protestant and Catholic churces, and to various Bible studies and prayer groups.

Sometimes I feel a real beauty and connectivity to a Greater Wisdom going on, but I have been appalled at the blatant, thinly disguised muckraking gossip of the nastiest sort that sometimes occurs.

Yes, "corruption" is a good word.
