I don't quite get this, mostly because 'they say them to us' is a sentence that doesn't make sense to me. Is this something we say in English?

It would make sense in English such that; "The prayers. They say them to us." for example.

Oh yes, you are quite right. Thanks, that was really helpful :-)

"You know: words. They say them to us." would be something someone could say.
