So why is praying at the end of the speech bad? I'm not going to do it everytime, only when I feel led.


If you value praying out loud over the risk of a bad score, go ahead. I'll just tell you now, I'm a something of a cynical person and would be suspicious of anyone praying out loud right before or after a speech about Christianity. I figure that you can communicate with God silently or out of the room, so the only reason to do it in front of judges is to impress them.

I typically bow my head for about 15 seconds near the end of my prep time. I don't say anything out loud, and most times the judges are still writing on their ballots. I think anything more than that would be extremely dangerous and lead to some judges thinking you were just trying to impress them.
