By this criteria, aren't "prayer" and "telepathy" the same thing?

Ok here is what one user wrote:
“Telepathy is using THOUGHTS to communicate. Prayer is using words. It is true you can still communicate with God using thoughts, but when we talk to God using thoughts we are forming words. We are still using GRAMMAR.”
Now from that same paragraph let’s look at these sentences or fragments.
-“It is true you can still communicate with God using thoughts”
-“Telepathy is using THOUGHTS to communicate”
-“when we talk to God using thoughts we are forming words”
-“Prayer is using words”
technically doesn’t that prove telepathy and prayer are the same thing? (If you don’t believe me, look at this link and see the question for yourself)

and then look at the last additional details
“would you at least agree that it is a logical fallacy to compare prayer to telepathy?”

  1. Praying comes from the heart; it is either oral or silent. Telepathy is to communicate with someone using the mind, not the heart.

  2. You go Mr Latino. I think you got a good idea of how prayer works. OK, perhaps nobody else likes it. But I do. When you pray, you are telepathing your thoughts, your hopes, your fears, your feelings to a higher level where they are received by and if they make sense, aren’t a bunch of selfish desires designed to manipulate God, I’m sure they will be responded to in their proper time. I have done the same things, God just looks at me now and I know I’m piling them up and crisscrossing them and most of my confusion is that I have so many out there that I forget and then get all frustrated because I don’t get an answer right away.

  3. Telepathy is the specific communication via thoughts, speech, and or images directly to someone else’s brain without there being a written, spoken, or imaged mode of communication.
    Prayer is wishing something would occur.
    You can compare the two but it’s not a very good comparison.

  4. Out of my investigation, shopping for gadgets online can for sure be expensive, yet there are some guidelines that you can use to help you get the best deals.

  6. A regular stroller could be the most prevalent kind. It has 4 wheels as well as a sturdy frame. Most standard strollers have reclining seats that permit employing the same unit for your child from infant to toddler. Strollers that convert to vehicle seats are convenient for traveling. The stroller must have high quality suspension to keep your baby’s ride comfy and smooth.
