Personally I can see it both ways. When I've had sick family members and people told me they'd pray for them, I always say 'thank you' and am touched that they care enough. However, I'm and atheist and don't really believe those prayers do anything or that half those people even make a regular practice of prayer.

It doesn't exactly bug me, but I feel it's unneeded to proclaim that "I'm gonna help you by asking God" especially from people who know our family's heathen beliefs.
It does bother me. Who are they to assume that I have a problem with the way I am?
