Having been raised non-religious, I'm lacking in the religious skills department. I'm curious when different religions are supposed to pray for things. For example, I have a cat on my lap and can't get up without disturbing her. And she's purring. Do I pray for a solution or deal with it? Obviously you're supposed to pray if you have a gun pointed at your head. Where's the line though? Does it have to be life-threatening or can I pray for sushi? I've never been able to get a straight answer out of a religious person, they either seem to avoid the question or get hostile. Thought you guys might be able to respond in a more intelligent way.
