you need or you will get in jail
It shouldn't affect it at all... for nowIt shouldn't at all. According to North Carolina law, a "prayer for judgment continued" is not a conviction. http://www.scstatehouse.net/sess113_1999-2000/bills/5155.htmFor a great resource on prayer for judgment check out: http://prayerforjudgment.comFind out when your judgment will be dismissed and under what conditions.

Prayer to forgive is the best. :)

Decision without trial
A Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC) is a finding of guilt without an entry of judgment for a criminal or traffic offense. A Prayer for Judgment Continued is a judge-granted remedy that is unique to North Carolina and may not be recognized by other states. However, a judge is not authorized to grant a PJC for a Driving While Impaired (DWI).
You can pray about anything. If you are guilty I doubt your prayer will be answered to your satisfaction.
After 3 years, it will not be in effect and you can use it again if needed.
In the context in which the question is asked, probably yes. A "prayer" in the legal context, refers to the specific amount asked for as damages at the end of a complaint or petition. A prayer gives the judge an idea of what is being sought by the plaintiff, and if the defendant fails to answer, they may have a default judgment entered against him/her for the amount that was "prayed" for.
This kind of thing seems to vary from one religion to another, so you need to be specific.
I'm not an insurance agent, but having a good friend in the business and a good bit of tickets to deal with, I think I might be able to help a little. If it is a non moving violation (such as not wearing a seat belt, or expired tags... something like that) then it doesn't count against you. If you had 1 prayer for judgment (i think it's one every five years) then that will not count against you either. If it's a speeding ticket, two prayer for jodgements, or something you might have gotten arrested for, you might want to report it. In any case, the agent is able to pull up your driving records in their computer, so they will likely see the mistake and take the correct actions to make your policy valid.
