Okay, *this* is my final Riley Riddle (and not my [previous](https://puzzling.stackexchange.com/questions/72014/my-final-song-to-riley) one), because I could not resist... <br> ...and that meant this had to be even better.

>>**Riddle me this:**

>*My prefix will pray with an S, <br> My suffix is red with an A, <br> My infix, so ill with an F, <br>If only affixed with an E. <br> <br> Because the answer is SAFE.*

___
**Note:**

> The answer is **not** "safe / SAFE". This is genuinely true; no wordplay involved.

**Hint:**

>! Although the verses do not rhyme, <br> I tell you it is not a crime. <br> Well, now it rhymes, but see not that! <br> A word at end, you should look at. <br> <br> Changing how you say this word, <br> Will highlight even when absurd; <br> Though then you might add properly, <br> And find the sharing property.
