Certainly EWR's remarks in this article are directly contrary to the teaching of C.M. Luxmoore in "Paul on Worship", which articulates the Needed Truth position (uploaded on this site). Odd though it may seem, the late Albert McShane of Lurgan stated his support of direct personal address in public prayer to the Lord Jesus Christ. I know this because a brother in a certain meeting was getting some negative feedback on account of his practice of this mode of address in prayer. (circa 1980)The brother asked Mr McShane directly, who expressed surprise that this should have been an issue at all. I very much doubt whether this question had a bearing upon the EWR controversy in Northern Ireland.
