True prayers are not dishonest or coercive---nor are they motivated by activities which entail dishonesty or coercion. True prayers are not techniques by which to manipulate God or other persons with good or evil intentions or expectations. Prayers which are dominated by systematic techniques, requirements, taboos, prohibitions, regulations, controls, coercion or violence---are not likely to be true prayers leading to personal or communal integrity.
