leaders gain responsibilities and lose privacy by virtue of being leaders.
prayer is a private act or a public act￼￼.
you can do a private act in public if you are leader, but if you are in the middle of coaching and you stop and pray, when did you switch into a private citizen that loses leadership status for the moment of praying?
At a lunch table it’s easy ￼:￼￼￼ it’s you, your tray, and your food.
you can pray between you and your tray.
but if it’s you and a circle of students and perhaps a Camera or two, you are in a leader ship position,￼￼￼ at which point is it signaled that the leader ship ends and there’s a moment of privacy needed?
if the coach want others to join, that’s using a leadership role￼￼: leading a team and leading a prayer is leading. ￼￼
