Instead of writing a diary i write letters/prayers to God. It sounds a strange thing to do but it comforts me and makes me feel closer to God.

Does anyone else do this or is it just me?

Though I am not religious, I have a close friend who does almost that exact thing. She keeps a diary written like they were letters. All to God.

I don't see anything wrong or particularly weird with this. It seems like a good way to get your thoughts down, and would be theraputic to anyone regardless of lack of belief in a god/gods.

Psychologists say that talking (outloud) to oneself or writing down your thoughts is good for you mental well-being.

This seems more or less the same I think I sometimes talk to myself when I need to get motivated for something lol.

If God is all powerful and whatnot, shouldn't you just be able to think about whatever it is your prayers are about all day long? Like one long ass boring message to God?

I dont think that is the point of the excercise. The point isnt to convey a message to God. It is just beneficial to the person not a diety.
