"ojalá que" or "ojalá"?

I see in the examples given that sometimes "ojalá que" is used, and sometimes just "ojalá".  Is this just a matter of taste or custom, or is there a logic to it?

This question relates to:
Spanish lesson "Using ojalá + El Presente de Subjuntivo to express hope (present subjunctive)"

Hi Alan,

I would say that although they are the same and both correct, there is a tendency to use ojalá on its own more than with "que". 

You will also hear the expression ¡Ojalá! meaning I wish!, in which case it needs to be on its own.
