I mean I only want people that believe as I do to pray for me? Even Christians are divided amongst themselves in beliefs. So I think that if an Islamic prays to Allah to help me, it's all good.
Just as long as some feedback goes to The Almighty, that's the object here.
This is an interesting post. You bring up a number of things, but I'm going to limit my reply to just one point.
You said; "At first I thought to ask only Christians. But I do believe God is God, and to exclude other religions in my opinion would be wrong."
Christianity is the only "religion" that has a mediator between man and God. Jesus Christ. Without Christ one is separated from God by their sin. Being separated from God by sin means that one will pray in vain until they have trusted in what Jesus did at the cross on their behalf. When one has trusted Christ as their saviour and is regenerated by the Holy Spirit(baptised into Christ), only then is one brought back into a relationship with God.
One must have a relationship with God based on what He has done to restore that relationship in order to have any hope that God will respond to their petitions and prayers.
All true Christians are united in this belief, and anyone who denies that Jesus is the Christ, that one is a false believer.
I'm praying for you Ice Cold.
