OOps. "Good afternoon Jehovah" est verboten!
Look, WT 15 March, 86:
When individuals have the opportunity to speak to kings or rulers of this world, they usually do so respectfully and with dignity, highly appreciating the privilege. Should we be less respectful and appreciative when speaking to "the living God and the King to time indefinite"? (Jeremiah 10:10) Of course not. Thus, such expressions as, "Good afternoon, Jehovah" or, "We want to talk to you, Jehovah" are out of place in prayer, as are conversational remarks such as, "How are you today?" "Give our love to Jesus," or, "Have a nice day."—Compare Ecclesiastes 5:1, 2.
But then, the WT of June 1, 85 had previously stated:
·Are there things that we should avoid saying when we pray to Jehovah?
Yes, there are. We should avoid saying things in our prayers that sound overly familiar and suggest to others (in public prayers) that we are being disrespectful. Such expressions as "Good afternoon, Jehovah" and "Give our love to Jesus" are not fitting, nor are humorous comments or even jokes in our prayers.
Even back in 1980, the WT had begun it's campaign of avoiding too much familiarity with Jehovah:
How thoughtlessly inappropriate to begin a prayer with an expression such as, "Good afternoon, Jehovah!" We can come with freeness of speech because of our faith and confidence in His willingness to hear and because of our being integrity-keepers. But we should do so with deep respect, with reverence.—
I just thought that you might find this of some interest. I shall now look up Good night, Jehovah, Good morning, Jehovah and Asta La Vista Jehovah.
