Public Prayer

When I was in school, in the 50’s, we had school-wide announcements and prayers over the intercom. I don’t think anyone benefitted from them. One summer I took a course at a Catholic college, and every class was opened and closed with a prayer. A Catholic friend asked me why I wasn’t saying the prayers with the class. I told him that everyone was mumbling and I couldn’t tell what they were saying. We gave me the words and I joined in. But I don’t know that it was any great benefit then either. Prayer is something special. School Prayer is empty repetition.
