After the school district ruled that a prayer was no longer going to be performed at any school functions and at graduation was replaced with a moment of silence valedictorian Roy Costner adds the Lords prayer into his speech, with the crowed showing tons of support. Video was recorded by Brian Dismukes


Courage in the face of progressive secularism requires one thing: a commitment to Truth.


Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

After the Tornado in Moore, Oklahoma,  I read that a teacher who sheltered her children said this:     " And then I did something teachers are not supposed to do.  I PRAYED;  I prayed OUT LOUD".

There is such little faith in God these days. When you see faith being demonstrated in public like that it makes you wonder...
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

Does not make me wonder, it makes me happy. God is still at work here on this planet and will be until the end of time. Yes, there will be a period when He will withdrawal His spirit from the Earth and then all Hell will truely break loose. He will then come back and destroy those that refuse to believe and there will be a new Earth and Jerusalem created for His children.

Man I can only imagine the reaction if someone were to give a Muslim prayer after that. 

My point in this is that maybe prayer is out of public gatherings like this because the way some people feel about hearing a prayer to Allah is the same way that other people feel when hearing the Lord's Prayer. 

Is there a difference to God if all of the religious people prayed to themselves vs having someone lead them in the prayer? Even if it's the same prayer? Can anyone even answer this with any accuracy/credibility?

Ha ha, this is akin to asking if a Mormon, a Muslim and a Baptist can all tell you how to get to heaven.  The real theological question is does God acknowledge all such prayers.  I'm comfortable in saying that He hears them all, but I'm not sure they all achieve the same intended goal.  But there is the added component of the speaker (in this case) not being ashamed to use the moment to publicly acknowledge faith in God which goes above and beyond the prayer itself. 
 
But to answer your question, all things being equal, I'm not sure there's any scriptural evidence that God places more value on a publicly lead prayer versus individual prayers.  
If it matters, seek the truth.

When I get to Heaven I am sure there will be more people there from all the religions in the world that I would never have thought would have made it in. There is only one simple thing you need to do to make it to Heaven. Everyone thought the criminal on the cross beside Jesus was doomed for eternity but for one thing that he was able to do before he died. He believed.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
