Being asked to give a prayer is not a big deal to most Mormons. We ask our 3-year-old Sunbeams to say prayers in Primary – and before you know it, that Sunbeam has grown into a General Auxiliary President wearing a bright suit and speaking in General Conference.
I wasn’t raised Mormon but said my own prayers and at every meal we chanted:
God is Great
And God is Good.
Let us thank him
For our Food. Amen.
And yes, even as a child, that off-rhyme bugged me.
Recently I had a praying in public conundrum.
