It's interesting how certain situations cause people to pray.

They might not even know exactly to whom they are praying, but still, it's instinctual.
One of my friends who is not religious takes a moment to himself every night before the show. We enter the stage from the same wing, so I've noticed. I finally asked him what he was doing. This is not unusual for me; I ask a lot of questions. But anyway, he told me that he prays before every show, no matter what. He's been doing this since he started performing and it is now just as much a part of his show as wearing a costume.
And I like this.
I, too, pray before every show. Specifically, I pray right as I am walking onto stage in the dark. I try to release any fear that I'm holding onto, and instead ask to be filled with peace, grace, strength and the ability to tell my story and tell it well.
How about you guys?
Do you find that certain situations just cause you to pray?
And if you do, how does it make you feel?
