Friday evening I attended the MADISON County CONSERVATIVE (political) Party Spring Dinner. I was asked to give the Invocation and benediction. When the Chairman proposed the ideal to me, I only had two request: 1) I would not "read" a prayer (though I did jot down a few notes) and I would end my prayer in the "name of Jesus Christ". John told me it was my call. PTL! Thus it got me wondering, has anybody else been in such a situation? If you were instucted, or "highly recommended" to "READ A PRAYER" and/or not to pray in the name of Jesus, what would you do. If you are not a pastor, and you happened to attend the same function, and you pastor did not pray in the name of Jesus and/or read a prayer, what would be you thoughts. Salty ps, how could I pass this up, there was so much food, I thought it was group of Baptist ! and best of all, I did not have to pay due to my "services"
