try praying?

So I'm sitting in the pew at our Maundy Thursday service tonight and I know I'm doing the long closing prayer. I'm also panicking because I have this increasingly frequent and slightly hacking cough (just came on this afternoon). Will I be able to get through the prayer? I take the umpteenth swig from my bottle of water but the cough is building and building.

Then I remember what prayer is for and I shut my eyes and pray like mad for help. When I open my eyes, I see that the person sitting in front of me has put a cough sweet on the shelf in front of me. It helps enormously and I get through the long closing prayer without a hitch.
