I don't believe in sending "positive vibes" "thoughts" and "love"

I don't think I've ever ranted on my blog before, which is kind of shocking because if you know me personally, I tend to rant. a lot. and now I'm gonna rant about something that could be controversial, but it has been bothering me for years and I have to get it off my chest.

You know when someone is going through a tough time? and usually people respond with either:

a. I'll pray for you
b. I'll keep you in my thoughts
c. I'm sending positive vibes your way
d. I'll be sending love to you

I do not understand b, c, and d. okay, I understand it, but it ABSOLUTELY FRUSTRATES ME. people are going to say I'm overthinking this and I know these people have good intentions, but what are thoughts, positive vibes, and love going to do for someone? it's not gonna help the situation get better. for example, someone is dying of cancer (really sad example because this happens all the time but it's to help clarify my point). no offense to the people who say these statements, but the act of thinking of someone while they are sick with cancer is NOT going to help them get better. it is a nice gesture to keep someone in your mind while they go through a difficult time, but COME ON. how are your thoughts really going to help cure the cancer? and how do you send positive vibes to someone?
VIBE: a person's emotional state or the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others. (thanks google)
how is your happy, uplifting "emotional state" going to help someone's sickness go away? and how do you send it? by email? by text message? pigeon? like once again as stated earlier, your positive feelings are not going to cure cancer. if it did, then no one would ever get sick. same goes with love. sending love to someone is not gonna cure any sickness unfortunately. I do not even know what you mean by sending love to someone. like a hug? buying them candy? just the act of loving them and having a heart? it still isn't gonna cure the cancer. which brings me to my next point. the most controversial part which is where I'm probably going to receive the most hate for.

usually when people say, "I'll keep you in my thoughts." or "I'm sending positive vibes your way!" instead of flat out saying, "I'll pray for you." it is because they do not believe in prayer or in a higher power who is actually capable of curing cancer, taking away sadness, etc. which doesn't make sense because as I said before, your thoughts and vibes are not going to help someone's terrible situation get better. so why bother telling people that? science can even prove it. you're basically giving false hope to the person in need. because you guys know that your thoughts/vibes/love will not help the person get better. UNLESS, people who do say "I'll keep you in my thoughts" etc, etc. secretly do believe that there is a higher power who is able to heal any kind of sickness BUT are denying it. because the only way your thoughts, vibes, and love will help someone in their situation get better is ONLY IF a higher power (for me, the higher power is Jesus Christ) has the capability of healing someone. because that is literally the only way a person's well being can be restored (with the help of doctors or whoever is helping this person in their bad situation). but it still doesn't make sense why those people can't just say "I'll pray for you," because that's what they are doing. but what do I know, lol. I saw a person on Facebook asking for good vibes as they were going through a tough situation. a day or two later, I saw that person thanking people for the positivity and support. I mean this in an absolutely wonderful way, but the only way the "positivity" helped this person's situation get better is because a higher power heard their cries and frustration and listened. I'm just saying. just something to think about...
 "You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.” Matthew 21:22
idk. this was something that was on my mind. it is an absolute pet peeve of mine and I cringe every time I see those phrases on social media since it's been increasing lately due to all the recent tragedies in the world. some of you might get offended or mad at me about this and it's okay! everyone is entitled to their own opinion and if you don't agree with me, that is totally cool. we can agree to disagree. you're even free to comment your opinion because I'm 100% aware that I am probably overreacting and looking way too much into this.
