On encouraging group prayer

From one of our pastors:

When you’re trying to create an inviting atmosphere for group prayer time, open with something like this:

“Dear God, thank you for this day and the beautiful sunshine.”

And stop.

The natural reaction of everyone else is, “The leader prayed like that?  Surely I can do better!”  Prayer in front of a group becomes much less intimidating – your prayer wasn’t long, wasn’t eloquent, and left things un-prayed for, leaving room for other pray-ers.
