it means we *care*.
It’s not an insult.
So many people seem to be offended if I mention that.
Now I sometimes ask, “Would you mind if I said a prayer for you?” Atheists are sensitive about it.
If someone wants to pray for you, please take it as a gesture of goodwill and friendship.
It doesn’t mean we’re trying to convert you, or that we think you need “saving.”
It just means you’re important to us, or if we just met you, that you did or said something that touched us.
It means that we’re thankful for you.
That we want to remember you.
