Words Usage

I was doing a search using the word pray and found between the NIV and the ESV, the usage differentiated by over 50.  This got me to think about how different version translate key words, below is a list of words and the number of times they exisit in each version.  I am some what amazed how key words like Believe, Faith, Christ, and sevral others differ from version to version, I would of thought these key worlds would stay the same.
