Heh, depends who he's praying to. Usually when Corwin invokes one or more of his ancestors it's rhetorical, something he picked up more from his father than his mother.
As an aside, someone once noted in a discussion thread that any prayer to Corwin - particularly his equivalent of Shepard's Prayer* - ought to contain the assertion, "I have done the math." I could not argue with this. :)
"Lord, please don't let me fuck up."
