Ramblings of a Fundamentally Flawed Person
I love that site so much; I read it every day now. I am totally a cross between the Cave-In and the Gun Slinger, depending on my mood. There's something about praying aloud in public--it's like, I'm thinking about what I should say when someone else is praying and I'm nervous about what I'm saying when it's my turn, and then I think...uh, is this even actually PRAYER?
Our pastor (Ann-Marie you can attest to this) will say something like everyone make this prayer yours and affirm it with a corporate Amen. Okay, no problem. However, when they say everyone pray, then I agree with Alice that I am trying to figure out what to say if I am going to say anything. Which of course, when you are trying to affirm the others prayers while trying to think of what to say, it is hard to affirm their prayers. Then it is well if she does not pray, then I won't. And I could go on. I am probably in the "cave in" category. I am just not a pray out loud in front of others kind of person. I know I am not being critiqued, but I feel that my prayers sound dumb because I hear it coming out of my mouth.
