I see a lot of requests for prayers on here FOR other people. And others quickly oblige. What if those families do not wish for prayers to your specific god? Why if it goes against their very own beliefs for a prayer sent in their name to what they may consider a false god. Do you consider this at all when answering a prayer request for a stranger?Answer Question

Just playing devils advocate? How is it going to hurt them, if you pray for them? What if they don't know, and if they don't believe in God and think he is a fairytale, what is the big deal. Isn't it all good thoughts towards them anyway, if he does not exist? What is the big deal? Why be so offended?

I don't ask anyone to pray for me, or for anyone else, but don't really care if someone says a prayer for me. I'm one of those who believes that the only one who benefits from prayer is the one doing the praying. I don't think prayer helps or harms anyone, but I do think that if someone is opposed to another praying for him or her, their wishes should be respected. Otherwise, I'm not into mind control, and don't think it matters one way or another if someone says a prayer - it's no different than them reading a passage from a book, or thinking a thought. It's just words thought or spoken. Actions matter far more.
