* In ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Catelyn Stark admits that she once prayed to the gods for her husband Ned's bastard son Jon to die. She hated herself for being horrible enough to wish a child dead, but she was also too bitter to change. She thinks that all of the misery she and those close to her suffer throughout the series (it's a lot) is divine punishment.

* At the beginning of ''Literate/TheIliad'', Achilles quits the war out of spite after his war-wife is claimed by Agamemnon. To make sure he'll get his honor back, Achilles prays to his mother Thetis, a River Goddess, to have Zeus make the Greeks lose the conflict so they'll eventually come running and begging him to save them. This winds up kicking off the plot of the poem.

* OlderThanFeudalism: ''Some'' of the Psalms in Literature/TheBible fit into this category. Elijah pretty much does this frequently, what with basically asking for a bunch of bears to maul bullies and all. David also does this during wartime right after begging him to forgive [[UriahGampit his]] [[YourCheatingHeart deed]], wishing God would destroy his enemies and punish the evil. Actually, most examples listed under HolyHandGrenade could be considered this, as they are frequently summoned by prayers.

* This is one of the main elements of the plot in Lois [=McMaster=] Bujold's ''The Curse of Literature/{{Chalion}}''. However, as it turns out, ''successfully'' praying for someone else's death will [[spoiler: except in very unusual circumstances]] kill you too, and [[spoiler: the gods will only answer your prayer if the person whose death you want actually deserves it]].
