Best response to somebody sincerely saying, "I'm praying for you"
Whenever I go through some sort of crisis or hardship, I have very nice people saying, "I'll pray for you" or some variation thereof to me. I generally try to be gracious and say, simply, "Thank you." Does anybody else have any thoughts on this? I used to say, "That means a lot to me," but if I'm being honest, it really doesn't.

Thank you is probably good. When you have been through something challenging it's not the best time to start a debate. And anyway the religious ones will say that your faith is being tested...blah, blah, blah...you probably know the drill.

And, welcome.

"I'm sure you are. Have at it, there's no better way to waste your time."

I'm a gun-owning Buddhist. In Kentucky that's not an oxymoron.

I've been amused by hearing the comeback line, "and I'll think for you."

But its mean to a sincere person, perhaps you could say, I'll be glad that you're thinking of me.

I say thank you. To the people who know better, I tell them I'll let them know if I think it's working. Otherwise, it's pretty much as meaningful (even to Christians) and "god bless you" It just pops out whether they mean it or not.

The best response would than be someone picking up a chair and proceeding to beat them with it.
But I suspect you are looking for something a little less... brutal.

Lol sincerely I just say "err thanks"...

When its used as theist for "go fuck yourself" I say "you can pray for me and Ill think enough for the both of us.."
