    I don't have many formula prayers memorized, just the Hail Mary, Our Father, and the Hail, Holy Queen (but that was a few days ago that I memorized that) but I can say that the Lord's Prayer is one of the things that kept me going when I was in jail last April. I'd lay in the bed and just say it for hours to keep myself from freaking out, then I realized that I could say the rosary using my knuckles and I started doing that to the best of my ability (I do not have the Apostle's Creed memorized, or I would substitute the Nicene Creed which I have memorized for it).

    Praying and reading the bible were what got me through my time in jail. God willing, I'm never going to have to experience that again because I am taking extreme pains to make sure that I don't break any laws.
