Fijian prayer

Worshiping in tongues-- this was the exact feeling I got when we closed the session yesterday. The local chief led the closing prayer and all (except us Asians) sang along in their deep bass voices mixed with a bit of jamaican accent. I cannot understand the lyrics but I felt that indeed it was soulful prayer.

This morning we likewise opened our workshop with another local song of praise and I felt that indeed I am blessed to be here in the islands. In the midst of crunching numbers and cerebral work, I felt that I was in a "prayer room" praying alone together and this made my prayer time and day complete.
