I think I'm going to have to steal this the next time I'm told I'm being prayed for. I haven't been around pushy religious people for a while but this seems like a polite request while hopefully showing sometimes there are more important things to do than to pray for those who do not want prayer. What do you guys think?
If you were asked to do this instead of praying would you?

Anon, I have only heard of two types of "I'll pray for you". The first is someone who knows that the other person is a Christian (or has similar beliefs). Most of the time, these "I'll pray for you"'s are welcome. The second is the condescending Christian who knows that the other person doesn't believe and it is a "I'll get the last word in" type thing or "I think I am better than you".
