340. Should Christians pray in public?
Christians should not pray in public.
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites
are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the
corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say
unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter
into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father
which is in secret; and thy Father in secret shall reward thee
openly. Matthew 6:5-6
Christians should pray in public.
And Jesus ... said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me ... I knew
that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it,
that they may believe that thou hast sent me. John 11:41-42
I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy
hands. 1 Timothy 2:8
