Re: Turning Greek Prayers into Prayers in Greek

Good point. I did a search in the NT/LXX and προσεύχομαι seems to be used only to describe prayer, and not as part of the content.

I then forgot most of it, and picked it up again about five years ago, working through Mounce, dabbling with Dobson,...
