    when others say praying

    i noticed when my friends and family are troubled they write on facebook about it and then everyone christian says "praying for you" what can i say as a Buddhist that brings comfort to others?

    You could just say something like "Wishing you good health, peace and happiness".

    This is a Buddhist wish/contemplation:

    "May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
    May they all be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
    May they never be deprived of true happiness devoid of any suffering.
    May they abide in great impartiality, free from attachment to loved ones and aversion to others."

    and you might also like some of the English words on the screen of this Buddhist 'Metta' (Loving-Kindness) chant.
