I work with an atheist in a small company. On occasion she will tell us how offensive it is for her to hear the words "God or Lord" in the office. Of course, the people saying those words don't mean any harm. She will come up to me and ask me to pray to MY GOD for good things to happen for the company. Or she will come by and ask if I have prayed to MY GOD today. For someone who is an atheist, isn't she obsessed with her belief? And why would an atheist celebrate Christmas? For Christmas, she bought us very expensive gifts, decorated her house and her office space. I need help in dealing with this person.
You are in a very interesting situation. One of the most important things for you to remember in this situation is that you are going to want to represent God's Love to her. Pray for her to soften her heart toward God. Look up the scriptures that talk about Christian behavior towards others in Romans 12:9-21. Remember that God loves her very much and is not going to give up on her but will keep coming to her with Love. God's love is very powerful.
