There are theists that do not believe there are any atheists. An atheist asking for prayer makes exactly as much sense as asking for Santa Claus to preform some miracle for you. Like when a theist says that atheists are just angry with their chosen god, it's irritating. No, you don't effing understand what the word atheist means if you think that statement makes any sense at all. But maybe the whole reason they do it is because it is irritating.
