I've seen this myself. I've dubbed it "the god effect."

In high school (catholic school) I became agnostic, but did notice some things about the faithful. After some students were injured and one died in a car crash, there was alot of group prayer and whatnot going on. The impact it had on people couldn't be denied. It made all the difference in the world for these people to band together and put their minds to something other than worrying. I think some people can just short circuit that process and just do what needs to be done themselves. The rest will pray to God, Allah, Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc. Hence my username, I am my own god.
