T-93 : Foreign Prayers

Today at devotional the opening prayer was given by a person for whom English was obviously a second language.  My natural reaction to experiences like that is to be frustrated with why people like that can't speak louder, slower, and more clearly.  Today I realized that trying to understand what someone like that is saying makes me listen harder.  In the long run I think that's good for me.  So much of what I hear doesn't sink in because of the "firehose effect".  Paying extra attention when someone is a little difficult to understand helps me focus more.  I appreciate that.
