If someone was brought up from a religious family or even a family that believe in god.. then became Atheist after... they might pray because it is
already ingrained in their mind.
I remember when i was 10... i had to walk thru some forested area to get home from school, i was scared of it cause i heard rumors of ghost and
whatever.. so my mom told me to believe in god and it will protect you thru the forest. I believed it when i was young so that ingrained part is still
in me.. so now i analyse things... if a "ghost" gonna get me, its getting me.
If you go to a isolated tribe that does not believe in god, and ask them if they would pray to god for illness or healing, you might get a better
answer.. but then they must not have any god.. including rain, thunder, fire or a rock as god.
