If the character does this in a way that superficially comes across as very sweet and innocent, it may be SugaryMalice as well. Simply praying for victory in a conflict does not count.

count (unless the prayer is accompanied by expressions of ill will toward the opponent over and above implicitly hoping they lose).

Added DiffLines:

* The Prayer of the Ashen Priestess in APracticalGuideToEvil: ''“Though their horses and chariots are like a river unto Creation, though their spears be forest and their swords be mountains, the Gods pass judgement unto them. Do not dread, for I bear the word of the Heavens and that word is '''begone'''.”'' This promptly deletes the subjects from Creation.

* Polish film ''Dzień Świra'' (''Day of the Wacko'') ends with the mock of a massive prayer (based on the popular Polish XVIII-century religious poem, no less) counting various accidents and unpleasantries praying people want to happen to their neighbours.

* In ''Film/SisterAct'', the nuns of St. Catherine's Convent have to fly to Las Vegas to save Deloris. When the helicopter pilot refuses to provide his services for free, the nuns pray, loudly, right in front of him and by committee, that God will be kinder to the pilot when he is in need. The pilot gives in.

* In the first ''Manga/{{Dramacon}}'' volume, Christie is angry that Derek, her neighbor in the artist's alley is doing better business than she is (coupled with the fact that he rubs her the wrong way and she's already dealing with her asshole boyfriend's behavior) and prays to God to help her persevere. And also strike Derek down with a lightning bolt. When that immediately fails, she prays to Satan.



* In one short on ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'', the {{Jerkass}} owner of a candy store very aggressively refuses to donate any candy to an orphanage run by nuns. When the nuns turn up to beat the crap out of him, he reminds them that as nuns they're not supposed to be violent. They therefore stop and pray, at which point a bus containing the Notre Dame college football team turns up, and ''they'' beat the crap out of him.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', there's a fairly sympathetic/understandable example with Arya Stark. Before she goes to sleep, she recites to herself a mantra which lists the names of her enemies, all of whom she plans to kill, and at one point, when she has an opportunity to engage in prayer, she recites the same list. She's a very angry ten year old, but you can't really blame her given all she goes through. [[spoiler:Eventually she finds herself in service to an assassin cult who worship the [[{{Psychopomp}} God of Death]].]]
** And her sister Sansa is in the sept praying with many others before the upcoming siege of Kings Landing. When the High Septon starts calling on the gods to protect [[TheCaligula King Joffrey]] who executed her father and has her beaten and tormented in petty ways, the normally mild-mannered Sansa walks out. ''Let his sword break and his shield shatter. Let his courage fail and every man desert him.''

* In Philip Kerr's novel ''{{Prayer}}'', FBI agent Gill Martin comes up against the Church of Izrael, led by the seemingly genuine Pastor Nelson van der Velden. He soon realises the odd spelling of "[[TheGrimReaper Izrael]]" is no error or eccentricity. Van der Velden spent time in Israel learning the inner secrets of Kabbalah. These include how to actively pray for the death of dirty godless liberals, atheists, socialists and advocates of sexual deviancy, so as to bring about God's will for the USA - a fundamentalist Christian theocracy. Led by President van der Velden.
