Here is the transcript from one of his stand up routines:

"I don't like it when people say I'll pray for you. 'I'll pray for you, I'll pray for you.' You're gonna pray for me? So basically you're gonna sit at home and do nothing? Because that's what your prayers are. You're doing nothing while I'm struggling with a situation, so don't pray for me, make me a sandwich or something. Cause I'm very upset right now and I can't make my own sandwiches so that would be cool if you made me a sandwich instead of praying that's very lazy.

'We'll keep you in our thoughts.' With the other bullshit in your head? No. Keep me out of your thoughts because I hear some of the stuff you take about. If that's close to what you're thinking about I don't want to be around that at all so keep me and my family out of your thoughts unless you're thinking about making us sandwiches."

Hannibal Buress explains that prayer is a waste of time
