Christian, Are You Praying for the Return of Jesus?

So I was talking to a Christian mother whose daughter is an atheist and sure to go to hell. I asked her if she's praying for Jesus to return to earth soon. She says yes, every day, and she thinks he'll come back soon too.

Duh. Where is the compassion when it comes to faith? Wouldn't the reasonable thing to do is pray that Jesus does NOT return soon so her daughter might come to repentance and be saved? Are believers brain dead or something?

As a Christian believer I think it is a very compassionate thing to desire and pray for Jesus return. Gods judgment, which comes when Jesus returns, is a good thing because it is the end of all the evil, unjust suffering, the horrors of war, illness and so on that we have in our world today. To pray for Christ's return is to ask for an end to all the world's evil. From Matt.
