I've always been curious about this. I had a friend who got very upset when someone challenged her belief in he "man with the beard," the God that she had always prayed to. She pictured him as a person. I'm interested in what others see, of all religions.

Your answer is closer to what is reality for me. I don't visualize anything when I pray. It's more a feeling of love and power that I try to express gratitude and reciprocating love to.
It's been proven that people who are prayed for are affected by prayer. To me, it's a way of expressing love and faith to pray for ourselves and others and to express thankfulness, awareness of God's presence. I do understand your answer, though.
