A thread on another sub forum here brought this issue to mind.
I often have friends of various faiths request prayers.
When this happens what do you do?
Do you solicit prayers from people of other faiths?
If you do, do you feel that is participating in or validating their faith?
Do you feel comfortable when a person of a different faith tells you they are praying for you?
I expect this would be less of an issue if the prayers were coming from someone in a similar faith, such as Protestants praying to God/Christ on a Catholic’s behalf. But what about someone who follows a very different religion?
Protestants, how would you feel is a Catholic friend said they were bringing your situation to the Virgin Mary or a saint for help?
