Are prayer chain e-mails considered superstition?

Question:

While preparing for confession, I happened to read a pamphlet for examination of conscience. One of the questions under the First Commandment was whether one has had anything to do with superstitious practices like chain prayers, fortune-telling, the Ouija board, etc. I understand that chain prayers would fall under the category of superstitious practices, but I receive some e-mails with beautiful prayers that ask the recipient to pass them along. Why is this breaking the First Commandment?
