Miserable are the diseased people; they are great worshippers of the Lord, for they hope that if they pray to Him He will heal them.
Not that that is altogether bad — if such prayers are honest and if they remember that that is not religion.

Shri Krishna says in the Gita (VII.16), "Four classes of people worship Me: 1. the distressed, 2. the seeker of material things,3.  the inquirer, and 4. the knower of truth."

People who are in distress approach God for relief.
If they are ill, they worship Him to be healed; if they lose their wealth, they pray to Him to get it back.
There are other people who ask Him for all kinds of things, because they are full of desires — name, fame, wealth, position and so on.

They will say, "O Virgin Mary, I will make an offering to you if I get what I want. If you are successful in granting my prayer, I will worship God and give you a part of everything."

Men not so material as that, but still with no faith in God, feel inclined to know about Him.
They study philosophies, read scriptures, listen to lectures, and so on. They are the inquirers.
The last class are those who worship God and know Him.
All these four classes of people are good, not bad.
All of them worship Him.
