Would you accept something OTHER than a prayer?

If someone told you they would send a thought out into the Universe, or cast a spell for you (don't know how that works, so please don't get offended at how I worded that) or they would pray to Allah for you, or would meditate for you....would you say thank you and accept this?

  • Absolutely.

    All prayers, well wishes, positive thoughts..etc.. That are extended to me in true sincerity are something that I would never reject.

  • I would not be offended. As an Atheist, it's all the same to me...ways of saying "You're in my thoughts."

  • Any positive thoughts or energy directed your way or on your behalf is a good thing in my book! We could all use a little more good will towards one another!

  • As long as they're good vibes and not bad, then absolutely. I'm not religious but when someone says they'll pray for me, keep me in their thoughts, etc, I accept it all graciously.

    Answer by SarahLeeMorgan at 7:16 PM on Aug. 31, 2010

  • Absolutely! I'm not Christian, but IMO ANY positive thought that someone has for you, your family, etc. is a good thing and helpful in some way.

  • I accept any positive thoughts, prayers, etc., even though I'm not particulary religious. I just take it as a sign that they care about me and want to do something nice for me.
