It is a general desire that something will be fulfilled, it borders on dreaming.
How about: "I'll pray for you to win".
Someone on their knees talking to an imaginary god is less effective than a fart in a hurricane.
In fact, it is totally useless.
"I wish you good luck" Aha! We have a double whammy here "wish" and "luck"
A wish is just a thought that doesn't have any effect outside of inside of your head.
Luck doesn't exist. Statistical odds exist.
Perhaps "I want you to win" is more honest. Or, " I prefer that you win".
These two statements at make the point that you can benefit from the person winning and seems honest.
I wonder what Ayn Rand would have said?
It doesn't matter because although she was insightful in some ways she was a bit of a wacko anyway.
I might break down and use "wish" or "hope" in the near future without thinking too much about it.
I will not be using "pray", maybe "luck" though.
