I think maybe he thought because of the scripture and God references. Some places move them off of the main boards or ban people because of them.. I don't know.
But I am praying too. Matthew 18:19-20 says:
"19Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.20For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
