Can someone explain specifically how the tense of deber changes the meaning of these sentences?
¿Por qué cree que debería orar? (translated as Why do you think you should pray?)
¿Por qué cree que debe orar? (What do you think you should pray for?).
I feel like the first sentence could've been made clearer using "para qué" instead but I'm just wondering how you would explain the different meanings of those two sentences.
My thoughts are that the conditional deber implies a more abstract meaning to por qué, and thus "why", as opposed to just present tense debe means like if you were to pray right now what should you ask for. Does that make sense?
