On a forum I read, there's one particular poster who will use the phrase "you're in my prayers" for any little thing. If someone posts that 300 co-workers were laid off, but they were spared, she puts all this other person's co-workers "in her prayers." If someone's kid is home with a cold, the kid is "in her prayers." I believe people really pray for those they know, but all this online promise to pray, I just don't buy. When some random internet person tells you that you're in their prayers, do you believe they'll actually take time to pray "for that woman online with the little green alien picture" or is it just a platitude? If you say it, do you really take time out to pray each night for every tragic story you've read online that day?

I feel it is genuine. At that moment in time as she is writing "in my prayers" this is a pray in itself. The thoughts alone are prayers. You can pray any time of the day & in the evening. I wouldn't be surprised if she does say pray again at night. Its her way of showing support. Not everyone does it this way but it works for her.
