Yes, I like to gaze around during prayers, especially big ones. Twice now I have seen the chairman or concluding speaker finish the song, approach the speaker stand, say "let's approach God in prayer," and at the last second pull out a index card size of paper with writing on it. He kind of cups his hand over as he lays in on top of the song book. Then he prays/reads. It really looks like an outline with binoculars. Has anyone else seen this at any level, even in the hall?
