Jamie, Tyler, Morgan, Payton come on stage, talking
Jaime: So who called this meeting?
Tyler: No good idea, just got me a text message, told me be here.
Morgan: Same. . . . . So, anyone know what’s up?
Payton: My text said: . . . . prayer, . . what does that mean?
Jamie: Well . . . . prayer is . . . like . . . . kinda . . .
Morgan: Let me explain . . . Prayer is like when you . . kinda . . . like . . . pray.
Tyler: Thanks for clearing that up Morgan!
Morgan: Let me put it this way . . . Praying is like when you talk to the big guy.
VOG: I beg your pardon! . . . The big guy?
all look around to see where the talking came from
Payton: That likely was young Willy Norton, he’s always got something to say.
Morgan: Well, like I say . . . when I really, really need some stuff, and if all else fails, I sometimes go and like . . . pray.
VOG: When all else fails? . . . Am I second choice?
Payton: Willy will you cut that out?
Tyler: I gotta admit, this praying thing, I don’t know much. . . . So, for this praying for stuff . . . where do you go, what do you do?
Morgan: Well, seems like you get down on your knees kinda.
Payton: Why for on your knees, is that important? . . . I mean I get sore knees real easy, wouldn’t it be OK if a fella was to sit on a comfy chair?
Morgan: Not sure exactly but from what I’ve seen it’s best to get down on your knees.
Jamie: OK, s’pose you get down on your knees . . . what then?
Morgan: Well seems like you . . fold your hands . . (folds hands in prayer), . . like this.
Payton, gets on knees, folds hands:
I can do this, anything else we should be doing?
Morgan: Well be sure not to smile or tell jokes or such when you are praying.
Tyler: OK before I get on my knees, fold hands, no smile, no jokes, where do I go pray?
Morgan: Well you can go like anywhere . . so long as its somewhere your friends can’t see you. . . I mean they might think you’ve lost it if you are there in the middle of nowhere, on your knees, hands folded, blank look on your face. . . . Like this . .
Stacy comes onstage, sees Morgan and all others get down on knees, hands folded
Stacy: Hey Morgan . . I didn’t realize you guys were praying kind of people.
Morgan, up quickly, embarrassed:
I wasn’t really like . . I mean I was just showing everyone how . .
Stacy: I think that’s really cool, I enjoy my time talking to God as well and . .
Payton: Stacy, you trying to tell us you, like, . . can talk to God?
Stacy: Of course, and obviously you guys do as well, on your knees and all.
Jamie: Fascinating Stacy, so whenever you want something you just go ahead and get on your knees and ask the big guy upstairs to go get it for you?
VOG: I am not the big guy upstairs!
Payton: Don’t pay attention, that was likely Willie Norton again.
Stacy: No, that was God.
all react in shock
Tyler: You trying to tell us that there was . . .
Morgan: The big guy?
VOG: And I am not to be referred to as the . . . big guy!
Morgan: Ssssssorry, your . . your . . Godness!
Jamie: Hey I can see where this praying thing could be flat out awesome, just get down on the floor here and ask God for all the things we want.
Payton: Me too, I tell you, sign me up!
