    This is a report in Spanish conerning David Splane giving a prayer at a convention.

    Perhaps someone can translate it better, but Google Translate gave the following:

    During prayer, should no longer be necessary to bow his head in a mass meeting, as was Splane throughout the prayer, head up, down, left and right looking at all tiers, not hiding in the least.

    So Splane is looking all around at the sudience while giving a prayer?!!!

    Can someone confirm that is what the Spanish text says?

    Amazing if it is so.



    Se me olvidó añadir unas curiosidades más, sobre todo para los testigos que nos leen.
    Durante la oración, ya no deber ser necesario agachar la cabeza en una reunión multitudinaria, ya que Splane estuvo durante toda la oración, cabeza arriba, abajo, a izquierda y derecha mirando a todas las gradas, sin disimular en lo más mínimo.
    Y lo de no agarrarse durante la oración que decía hace poco la Atalaya, también se ha debido eliminar. David y Lynda estaban muy, muy agarraditos.
    ¿Será otra nueva luz, o asunto de conciencia, o seguiremos el dicho "haz lo que yo diga, pero no lo que yo haga?

    Maybe he expects God to bow His head to him.


    He was looking for apostates. The guy would sign a Bible. He thinks he is a celeb.

    He'd make a great leader of the Scientologists.

    Sounds like what you would do when giving a talk to your underlings. These GB members, DO's, etc always have to make the final prayer sound like the last mini-talk of the assembly.

    Just once I would like to hear them give a truly contrite, penitent prayer, earnestly and humbly begging for forgiveness of THEIR sins. What's the chance of that ever happening?

    They can read this to help them get into the spirit and then come up with one in their own words.

    Ps 51:

    “Have mercy on me, O God,

    according to your unfailing love;

    according to your great compassion

    blot out my transgressions.

    Wash away all my iniquity

    and cleanse me from my sin.

    For I know my transgressions,

    and my sin is always before me.

    Against You, You only, have I sinned

    and done what is evil in Your sight,

    so that You are proved right when You speak

    and justified when You judge.

    Surely I was sinful at birth,

    sinful from the time my mother conceived me.

    Surely you desire truth in the inner parts;

    You teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

    Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;

    wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

    Let me hear joy and gladness;

    let the bones You have crushed rejoice.

    Hide Your face from my sins

    and blot out all my iniquity.

    Create in me a pure heart, O God,

    and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

    Do not cast me from Your presence

    or take Your Holy Spirit from me.

    Restore to me the joy of your salvation

    and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

    Then I will teach transgressors Your ways,

    and sinners will turn back to You.

    Save me from bloodguilt, O God,

    the God who saves me,

    and my tongue will sing of Your righteousness.

    O Lord, open my lips,

    and my mouth will declare Your praise.

    You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;

    You do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.

    The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit;

    a broken and contrite heart,

    O God, You will not despise."

    Allow me to translate... what that Spanish comment basically says is that David Splane looks around whenever there is a prayer in progress (not when he himself is doing the prayer). The second half of the comment is that David holds on to his wife very tightly while a prayer is in progress even after this practice has been banned by the WT...

    Sorry if I am off topic but I want to mention that one JW ASL interpreter sister opened her eyes while she was translating the prayer in ASL, She was looking at me at the same time and she wanted to know how I feel about the prayer, it annoyed me big time. I flipped out and she never did it again.
