I'll happily accept prayers, well-wishes, good thoughts, and positive vibes from anyone. Doesn't matter to me...

Well said, and I agree. This did happen to me, and I believe my response was "Thank you, I appreciate it." I see no reason to say anything derogatory, or offensive to their beliefs, especially since they are wishing me well.

Contrarily, I DO take offense when someone presumes I will pray with them. Faced with that, I simply bow my head or otherwise decline to participate, respectfully.
