There is a memorable scene in an episode of the American television series Judging Amy (1999-2005). In that scene Bruce van Exel, a self-confessed and somewhat devout Catholic Court Services Officer, wants to say night prayers with his daughter, Rebecca.
The only problem was that Bruce left Rebecca with his sister that day, and his sister took Rebecca to a traditional bible-only black protestant Church, which she frequents.
Thus, when asked to pray, Rebecca starts belting out many familiar tropes associated with protestant ministers, spontaneous, varied in cadence – and rather loud.
Rebecca is seen smiling throughout as she prays, and it is quite apparent that her prayers are sincere, even as she takes the prayer style of a protestant minister.
