Other questions about "Pray"

Q: Hello. Pray tell me, what the quote in the picture below means plz?
A: an excuse is a bad reason. For example, "I didn't have time" is a common excuse. It's not a good reason, though, because you could always make time by cutting out something else.

So, when someone fails, they can always give many excuses (bad reasons) why they failed. But never a good reason, because if they worked harder, or planned better, they could have succeeded anyway.

There is a difference between 'cope with work and caring for D and R', and 'cope with work and care for D and R'. In the first, 'cope with' applies to both work and the task of caring for those two people. In the second, the meaning of 'cope with' only applies to work. Both of them sound okay.

A: "You're his son" would sound more natural
Q: Pray for her
Pray for him
Pray for me
Pray for us
Pray for its bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: Yes, the (') is sometimes used. The (') (called an apostrophe) is used when you are pushing two words to make one word. So "it is" can be pushed together to make "it's". (This does not work with all words). The apostrophe (') is also used to show that something belongs to someone. Example, "that is my friend's book." The exception to this rule is with "it". Because the apostrophe (') is used to show that "it is" is being pushed together it does not show possession. So "its" is used to show that something belongs with "it". For example, "That toy is missing its hand." In your case you are using "its" but you do not state what belongs to it. It would be better to say, "Pray for it."
