dear god is somewhat like a post secret for prayers. people write in prayers to god (these are unedited, btw), and categorize them into one of about a dozen tags (confession, belief, etc). there are a couple unique things about this: first, the length of the prayers is quite a bit longer than a post secret note, and allows for more depth. but another uniqueness is that, like a blog, comments are allowed, and each prayer seems to get dozens of comments. most of these are very shallow advice or rebukes, but it still seems to add a dimension that’s different. kind of an anonymous, communal, voyeuristic/exhibitionist confessional booth.
