A friend told me today that she prays to Allah for her Muslim friends, to Guru Gobind Singh for her Sikh friends and to Jesus for her Catholic friends.

What might God make of this?!

Well, I can imagine that God might be pleased that she’s praying for her friends at all, especially friends of other faiths. After all, if God is love, surely God cares more about how loving you are than to whom or how you pray?*

 

*For Jesus’ take on this, see the story of the good Samaritan.
