There was a long article on prayer, “The Right Way to Pray,” in last Sunday’s New York Times Magazine In it, Reform Rabbi Marc Gellman (known to you perhaps through his “God Squad” cable TV show with his friend Msgr. Tom Hartman) states that, “when you come right down to it, there are only four basic prayers. Gimme! Thanks! Oops! and Wow!”
Interesting theory. Do you agree?
