Ever since I was a kid, it always confuses me as to whom believers pray. I don't know if they are praying to god (whose name depends on the religion), to jesus, to the holy spirit. What's a holy spirit, anyway? And I don't get why some people actually believe in intercessions and asking god for something through Mary, Peter, Paul, or whichever saints and martyrs they could think of. This idea alone makes me realize that religion indeed is ridiculous. Isn't god a jealous god based on the stories written in the scriptures? It seems that he gets jealous when someone prays to a rival god but does not seem to mind when someone prays to his "allies".
