A Modern Orthodox rabbi takes on interfaith prayer

An interesting post (with comments) from a Modern Orthodox rabbi with an ill congregant who has some born-again Christian friends who want to pray for her:

Personally, I am not terribly bothered by their request. If we follow the Rama's ruling that Christianity is not classified as avodah zarah for non-Jews, why not permit them to do what they want?

Other WACvillians have a different take; they view these “friends” as preying rather than praying, attempting to convert her.
