    When I pray for the congregation I never ask for forgiveness. That's what jebus died for, if he even ever existed.

    We had a brother in my old congregation who would implement the word "father" in his prayer as often as he could. At least once per sentence. It was really strange and annoying.

    I also hated those 5 minute long closing prayers at the end of the conventions. Those after the closing speaker already went over by a good 15 minutes.

    Those people who would act like they were reciting their own version of the Gettysburg Address stressed me out.

    @keyser soze YESSSS. Especially when you've been holding your bladder 'til after the session so you don't disrupt the closing talk?! I swear, I've broken sweats during those extra long prayers trying not to pee my pants.

    They all annoyed me, pointless babble that went on and on and on.


    Thank you Jehovah, for This..
    Thank you Jehovah, for That..
    Thank you Jehovah, for the Other Thing.

    No longer close eyes during prayer, unless I need a quick snooze.

    Although, in the Spanish side, this is a bit dangerous because some brothers' prayers are soooo damn long that I fear really falling asleep and begin to snore.

    Another nice benefit of being awakened, prayer means nothing. Cannot even remember the last time I honestly prayed. Only pretend when in presence of the JW deceived.

    Prayer is nothing more than wishful thinking or self-insight, brief meditation type of behavior.

    A prayer with a squinch of truth in it..."Please help the sick ones that are in good standing, Father, because if YOU don't, I'm gonna hafta try and get things organized to lend a hand, and I was planning to head over to that golf game with the other golf-playing elders, you know how it is, I just need to relax and de-stress from doing all this stuff that the WT says you need to have done..."

    Any prayer longer than a minute, tops.
