why beautiful messages sometimes don't sink

yes...isn't this picture amazing? beautiful? ...imagine the water in his hands slowly pouring, like magic eh? that's how it first looked to me when i saw it in an email (sent by my favorite aunt)...the booo-side is, it's followed by this:

Please do not break.  Just 27  words -
"God, our Father, walk through my house and take away all my worries and illnesses and please watch over and heal my  family in Jesus name, Amen."

now what happens when you get a beautiful prayer (in an email) but they make it look like a chain message and to make things somewhat a turn-off is adding this up: 

This prayer is so powerful.  Pass this to 12 people including me.  A blessing is coming to you in form of a new job, a house, marriage, finances, or maybe an answer to something  (a prayer, a request) that you have been waiting for.  Do not break or ask questions.  Does God come first in your life? If so, stop what you are doing & send it to 12 people now.  Watch what He does!

i'm sure you'd agree with me that a prayer like that is powerful in itself and it would certainly work with the sincerest of heart and intentions... not because you have chosen to pass it to a specific number of people and semi-force them to do so (read last 3 lines in the quote above). i mean, no offense meant to those who send me messages such as this; curious and ever-wanting-to-learn as i am, i open almost everything and share if it's worth sharing. oftentimes, i opt to remove the 'chain-directions' that follows it 'coz i know it will sink better that way. am i right or not wrong? LOL. a blessed easter to you all!
