If you are mean and arrogant to people while you are secretly "praying" that they go away, it is probably not God answering your prayer when they actually go away.

I have issues with certain "prayer requests." I really wonder who/what people are actually praying to sometimes.

And people wonder why others have issues with organized religion. If I hear one more "us' vs. "them" statement, thinly disguised or not, I think I might :Puke

Ugh. I remember when I was a youth leader we had a boy get up and say he had a prayer request...No problem right? "I want to pray for XGirl...I heard she's pregnant." *screeching halt noise* We stopped service right then and there (killed the mood of prayer) and made a point to say "It's fine to want to pray for someone but it is NOT okay to use it as gossip."

I especially hate it when adults do it.
