My prayer's sharp edge was intended to make them aware of their own. I mentioned the natural beauty of the LGBTQ community and thanked God again for making us as we are, throwing in a genuine wish that their trip back home would be a safe one. We have a God who understands each of us, and who is there for each of us 24 hours every day. If this person is simply certain or adamant on their beliefs of "God made me this way" philosophy, for which there is no scientific or scriptural evidencethen all one can do is to love them and continue the relationship just as we would do for anyone with any issue with whom we do not agree from scripture or science.
