The Perils of "Open Prayer"

It's always a problem, isn't it? I mean, when you have a period of "open prayer" where people can take it in turns to pray. It's not like chairing a meeting - if someone goes off-piste on the subject being prayed for, or goes on a bit, you can't just hit them with a cricket bat. It seems irreverent somehow.

And so last night, when Ozcar prayed for everybody on the Bedford electoral role - in alphabetical order - it just seemed wrong to stop him. It was sincere, it was well-intentioned. It just went on a bit.

Still, I'm glad to say he's just finished. So those who have day jobs will be at work nice and early. And the rest of us can go back to bed.
