I'll Pray for You.

. . Ever time I see where someone has purchased a Catholic Mass card or some religious prayer card, it reminds me of the purchase indulgences that offended Martin Luther.

. . For example in a recent Humanist article the question was posed. 
My Father is Sick, and Everyone Wants to Pray for Him. How Should I Respond?
