I'll pray for you......

If you say you'll pray for someone,do you actually do it? Do you do it quick after you say you will,or do you make a mental note to do it later?
Is it just a way of saying you feel for the person perhaps?

  • i tend to do it a couple of times, just thinking positive thoughts about them and hoping they feel better soon

  • I can't speak for anyone else, but when I tell someone I'll pray for them, i do pray for them. I pray for them throughout the day.

  • If I say it, then it is a quick prayer.

  • If I tell someone I will pray for them, I do it. I usually say a quick prayer for them right away, and then anytime they come to mind.

  • I pray right then and there. I'm scared if I wait, I'll forget.

  • I make sure that if I say I'm going to do it, that I do a quick prayer right then and there bc if I don't I am likely to forget later. I don't have that great of a short term memory. lol.

  • I do and I say several prayers for that person over the next day or two.

  • If I say it, then yes I actually mean it sincerely and will do so sincerely.

    I don't say it often due to that reason.

  • yes you should

  • i say it to make a religious person feel better, but no. Praying is about as effective as rubbing a lucky rabbit's foot and making a wish imho... which actually I'm more likely to do than pray..
