Praying In Public


Some folk need to dive into Matthew 6:5:

When you pray, don’t ramble like heathens who think they’ll be heard if they talk a lot. (God’s Word Translation)

I remember when I was younger I’d brace myself when I would see a certain leader get up to pray. I knew would be a long covering of everything from the dirt on the ground, to all the leaders of the free world (By Name!). After a huge sigh, I’d settle in but ultimately ended up frustrated trying to follow along, or fall asleep:

Dozing In Church

What do you do when whoever is standing to pray collectively appears to be showboating? Should you even question that while you’re praying? How do you refocus? Unfortunately, I tend to shut down or go into my own prayer to distract myself… but I don’t think that’s correct either. When it’s just much too much…  what do you do?
