The more you seek to understand Mormonism and the gospel you've inherited the more you should be asking questions about how to live your religion. How is it that you are expected to prevail upon God? What is the purpose of those things we learn in the temple?
Why was a woman allowed to lead the prayer circle? Why is it that only men can act as voice in our prayer circles? Do we have any evidence in our own history that women have acted as voice? We know that until only recent Mormon history, mothers and wives joined in circles to give blessings to their family. What about leading prayers?
Outside of the temple does your wife sometimes act as voice in the prayer? Is it only appropriate for a woman to act as voice if it's not "real" or "true" prayer? Why is that?
Why does Mary have Peter and Andrew support her forearms as she "speaks?" Is it because she was too old to stand and speak to them, or another reason? How old was Mary when this happened?
I'm not suggesting we should change the way things are done in the temple. I actually think there is important symbolism in the way it's done. I'm not concerned as much about that as I am about how I'm supposed to approach God. Have you ever wondered what good it does you to learn a certain thing in the temple if it is never to be used in your personal life? Can men tell you how you should and should not approach your God in prayer?
We are more closed than we realize. We are more fearful of men than we are of God.
