Please! Stop Praying for Me!

I am being prayed for on a regular basis by one blog commenter after another. I wouldn't mind prayers, I suppose, if they were actual prayers. "I'll be praying for you," or "I'll pray the Lord saves you," or whatever, is not a prayer at all. It is the way the righteous true believer says "You suck" or "Go to hell." Why don't you just say it? It is that pious, syrupy, holier-than-thou phoniness that makes one want to join the Atheists Club of America.
