Please forgive my ignorance, but I want to know if I am supposed to sing or chant my litany prayers such as the Jesus Prayer and the other prayers that form my Ethiopian Orthodox "Rosary." I have heard this being done on the internet, but I am not sure if only Priests are supposed to pray in this manner or if the laity are to do so as well.
During Lent I have been leading my family in the Orthodox Rosary prayers every night, and I need to know if we should be singing or chanting these prayers. If so, should I be taught how to do this or should I just follow the examples that I hear to the best of my ability?
OK, thanks for some enlightenment on this matter.
