I find it an absolute insult when someone says they will pray for me. Are they saying that they have a problem with my life? That I need their “Lord’s” imaginary assistance? Which Lord is this exactly? For all the Gods in all the world, maybe I don’t want their help.
Don’t pray for me. It is not “all the help I can get”, where is the help exactly? If there is “help” to be given, please give mine to the million children’s hospitals. Give my prayers to them.
Don’t pray for me, don’t waste your Lord’s time with my life. He is way too busy to fix me, besides, there are bigger problems than a person who is gainfully employed and has the love of her family and friends. Aren’t there starving and homeless people on this planet? Give my prayers to them.
Don’t pray for me. I don’t even pray for me. I work for me. I live for me. I’m too busy being me to pray.
Pray for those that need it, right now, I’m just fine.
PS it’s funny that the religions I find the most valuable are never the ones that look upon you with condescension. They don’t need to.
