I gave a buddy of mine ( he's Muslim) be a ride to an AA meeting and as it was cold I stayed inside. It was mentioned AA is not about religion, yet at the end of the meeting they said the Lord's prayer (Our Father) go figure.
Is the Lord's prayer really a Christian prayer? Recite it and identify which part of it is Christian. I know that in the Catholic mass it is identified as the way Jesus taught us to pray but an expert on Christian scripture told me that the words of the prayer simply don't align with those used in that period of history. We should be free to pray in whatever way that brings comfort to us. Couldn't the Swami have simply recited the Gayatri mantra while others recited what was supposedly a universal prayer?
