This question is for Evangelicals, Catholics, Lutherans, Jews, and Muslims (and any other Abrahamic faith--sorry if I missed you):
Do you believe that prayer is a form of worship, why or why not?
For the pagans/wiccans (with or without atheistic tendencies): Do you believe that spells are the same as prayers? If you have atheistic tendencies and you do believe that they are the same, whom are you offering them to?
Please identify your religion in your answer so that it's easier to follow.

Prayers and spells are the EXACT same thing.
They are both trying to direct divine energy to a specific goal.
I don't necessarily see it as a form of "worship" per se..."worship" is honoring the god/dess(s), prayer/spells is beseaching Them for help.
