Interpersonal relations on Facebook fascinate me. We’ve had to develop a whole new set of rules and etiquette for relating to one another. Here’s one Facebook etiquette question that I don’t know how best to handle.
As an agnostic, what do I do when a Facebook friend asks me to pray for them?
Granted, the friend in question is not specifically asking for my prayers. This is usually part of a Facebook status, such as, “Please pray for my xxx. He’s in the hospital with xxx.” Usually, the prayers are being asked for something truly upsetting—someone’s hurt, someone’s dying, someone’s getting divorced, someone lost a job.
