What atheists worry about

Biologist Jerry Coyne expresses his extreme discomfort that National Institutes for Health director Francis Collins is praying for famed atheist Christopher Hitchens, who is now undergoing treatment for cancer. "I’m not sure what this means," says Coyne, "but I hope Collins isn’t praying for Hitch to see the light and ask God for wisdom."

This is apparently what keeps atheists awake at night.

Now I'm wondering why Coyne, who professes to think that prayer doesn't have any effect, would think that there would be negative effect to Collin's prayer.
