The only prayer I never really understood, was the prayer before diner. Why thanking an mythological and transcendant being?? The farmer who grew the food deserves the thanks, the supermarket personal who make sure it's available to you, and ofcourse the person earning the money in your house so you can buy the food. Why not thanking the right sources?
As for the other moments, I kinda understand why people do it. Some people simply need to support themselfs, humans are emotionally pretty weak creatures.

"Dear God, we paid for all this stuff ourselves, so thanks for nothing."

-Bart Simpson prayer at dinner

That's so fucking stupid it merits a wing in the museum of stupid. -midwifetoad
