If an older person who was around dying age was sick - would you pray for them to get better or pray for them to die a painless death?

Usually if somebody is sick and they are over the age of 60 - I just pray for them to die a painless death. I don't pray for them to get better.

    God does not want anyone to die sick. It is only because of the corruption of sin that we die at all. It is far more comfortable to die of old age, in your sleep, than to die of disease. If comfort is your priority, then pray for them to recover from their illness. Then they can be comfortable while they live (however long that may be).

      Where does it say that in the Bible? You made that up. You're a liar.

    You think 60 is around dying age? You are such an idiot.

    Better hope Reynaldo Weeks doesn't see this question or he'll be pissed. He's 83.

    Well, at least that way when sick dying people do die,

    you can pretend praying worked.

    Brilliant plan as long as there's morphine available.

    My mother is 81, even though I am an atheist I pray that she will die every time she gets a slight cold.

    She is quite wealthy.

      Funny thing is that I am 56, thus close to being a write off according to the OP. It was a joke, by the way, sort of.
