What are your thoughts about prepared prayers whether memorized or written out? Do you feel it is acceptable, proper or unacceptable, improper to write out prayers before hand or have them memorized if we know we are going to be called on to pray or perhaps just have one in our pocket in case we are called on so we can read it? Is there any evidence that anyone in scripture gave prepared prayers? As you know the Catholics follow this a lot in their practices such as the rosary. What are you thoughts?
