Who do you want?

How many people do you want praying for you? I cannot imagine anyone saying "very few"; we would all want as many people praying for us as possible. Those who actually would say "don't pray for me" are either hard-hearted atheists, or they have lost all hope. Of those people whom you do want praying for you, how holy do you want them to be? I cannot imagine anyone saying "I want evil people to pray for me". Of course not. We would all agree that we want the holiest people we can find to pray for us; Scripture tells us the prayers of righteous people are more effective. Next, I ask, when you consider how many, and how holy, you want the people to be, ask also how well do you want these people who were praying for you to be able to handle prayers? I cannot imagine anyone saying, "I want someone who can't get through a single prayer without being confused and giving up". No, we would obviously want someone who prays often, and prays well. We want someone who knows how to pray and who can do so with full conviction; someone really close to God.

Then go to the Saints in Heaven and ask them to pray for you; now.
