When a good friend tells you "I'll be praying for you" after you tell them something horrible that has happened (death of a loved one, loss of a job, natural disaster).
Remember that the statement is coming from a FRIEND not a stranger.
Here's why I ask. I'm one of those people that don't just arbitrarily say "I'll pray for you". Generally, if I don't know the person, I know that they just may not want my prayer. But if I have a good friend that is hurting, I have no problem praying for them to have peace or for things to get better for them. Usually, if I tell one of my non-Christian friends this, they'll respond with "Thank you hon, it's appreciated" b/c they know my intentions are loving and good.
Have you had a good friend say this to you and felt offended by it?

I have many good friends who are Christian. It is not offensive to me when they say they will pray for me in times of hardship because the intent is love and support, unlike strangers who only say it to be condescending.
