Is this "silent prayer" a figurative meaning? Or did they do something almost silent compared to "silent prayer"? What does it mean?
ex)Perhaps the best news about speaking to groups is that it is a learnable skill. Most people who are competent speakers today could only say a silent prayer in a phone booth at one time.
Re: silent prayer
It just means that people who are now very competent at speaking aloud to large groups might, in the past, have been only confident enough to stand in a phone booth (ie alone, not in front of a group) and say a silent prayer (ie they didn't even have the confidence to speak aloud in front of themselves!)
