I work in a Christian organisation where I am the only Catholic amongst Protestants.
When a few of us were in the office someone said we should pray for someone particular, seemed a nice thing, we all praying the Our Father for example but they prayed in a different manner something like, *Thank You for this that and the other, help us to do this that and the other, look after him, her etc.[/l] It went on and on and they each took turns.
What is that all about? It reminded me of Jesus mentioning babbling in regards to prayers.
I felt strange and I knew they wanted me to pray something too but just stayed silent, should I have started belting out Hail Mary’s or what?
Is this an opportunity to teach them to pray like we do?
