At least it would be "strange" to mormons.
Worshiping God meant praising him, not asking for favors. The family would kneel at night and everyone would talk at once.
"Dear God, you are great."
"You are the light and the way to Heaven."
"You know all."
"You gave us life."
"You are the only true happiness."
This would go on and on until the mother decided they could stop. She would sometimes go into spasms and roll on the floor during this ritual.
Only occasionally would anyone ask for anything because prayer to these people was about worship, not getting favors.
I don't believe in prayer. I'm just pointing out how different the idea can be in differing faiths.
Mormons see worship as asking for blessings. The Holy Rollers my DH knew forced him to praise God as the way to worship Him. They didn't give God advice or lay out excuses for their mistakes. They mostly glorified, honored, revered and worshiped when they prayed.
