How long do you pray?
by Nick Galieti
I have spent some time working at an event for another faith (not to be named) for the past week. While some of their beliefs are still unknown after being here a week (very little doctrinal exposition from my opinion), one thing struck me as different than a practice within the LDS faith. I am not sure if this practice is common in the faith, or if it is just at this convention/event, but they have setup a special room on site for praying. Not just any kind of praying, marathon praying.
Okay, maybe not marathon praying, but 90 minutes of prayer. It made me think, how long do members of the LDS church typically pray? Is there too long to pray? Would we be better off on an individual level if we had these longer prayer sessions?
