I can only guess, but I suspect that the fact that women haven't given prayers in GC has more to do with the fact that there are more GAs than speaking opportunities. It used to be that all GAs spoke every conference. Now many of the Seventy may only speak once while the are GAs. So, they are given a chance to pray instead.

I agree that rarely does anyone remember a prayer. Talks are what we remember. This really does seem like such a non-issue.

This is something to be genuinely happy about! I am so surprised that some commentators are insistent that we not feel happy--or even feel anything--about this wonderful turn of events! And then there are comments that have to "prove" the Brethren weren't listening to anyone when they made the change--as if that was somehow awful or humiliating if they did!

Can't we just be happy about something that is obviously so right? Greater light and knowledge and all that?

Scientist-

It's fine if a woman prays in General Conference. I personally have no problem with that. However, as a Mormon woman, I can't think how I have been in mourning because historically this has not happened. I am not sure how I have experienced such pain and suffering that I would need others to help me carry it.

When I have had heavy burdens to carry I have found so many, men and women, who have helped me carry them, who have truly mourned with me.

Often we find what we look for.
