We could have had a High Councilmen give the prayer. 2 hours later, we could all wake up and watch the race start.
This prayer was said in Tennessee, part of the bible belt. I highly doubt a lot of people in that crowd haven't heard an "appropriate" prayer.
I'd take this over testimonies laced with confession, sobbing, travel details, and verbatim statements that get repeated over and over again.
Listen, If y'all agree to leave us alone, than we'll promise to try really really hard not to rebel again. I promise.
