Many believers take comfort in rituals, in the predictability of sameness, "as it was in the beginning, and now and ever shall be...", although Jesus did speak against using prayer as a rote mantra or incantation. Many also think of prayer as making wishes on a star. And that God listens to some people's prayers and not others. And some, like Mary Cooper, get beside themselves if others "aren't doing it right!" Carrying a cross or other symbol is a reminder of faith for many -- and a good luck charm for others. Have fun figuring it out, Missy. Fortunately, the Almighty is said to have infinite patience. And a sense of humor.
A bit of redemption for Dale for letting Missy finish her prayer, whatever his motivation. I guess we're just walking away from the previous episode. That's fine with me.
We have heard Georgie's prayers in the past. Always about teenage girls, of course. LOL
An insightful episode with everyone getting equal time. Well done.
