In private, devote yourself to prayer; in public, be a godly witness for Jesus Christ. In private, we are to be persistent in watchful, thankful prayer. In public, we are to be wise in our conduct and winsome in our words so that we might be effective witnesses of Christ.

So, Jesus does appear to pray publicly, albeit not to make a show as the Pharisees did. In this case, it appears to be private prayer prayed in public.

And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at. 5. Public worship is more edifying than private.

In private you provide for your own good, but in public you do good both to yourselves and others. Public worship is a better security against apostasy than private. He who lacks or reject public worship, whatever private means he enjoy, is in danger of apostasy.

Consequently, we should be very careful to minimize self and maximize God when praying, especially in public. Finally, Jesus does give us a guiding principle in Matthew i.e., Focus your efforts on private prayer. We should follow His example and spend much of our prayer time alone, in a lonely place.

"He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there He prayed." -- ST. MARK i These two texts set before us our Saviour's habit in regard to public and private spiritual exercise; and they suggest to us the question, What have we, on our part, to say of these two elements in our own life.

In some nations, prayer in schools is banned by law and considered unconstitutional; elsewhere, the law requires prayers to be said. Until the early s, there were no laws on prayer in public schools in the United States.

Inprayer in public schools was ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. There is no such thing as “private” prayer. There is – and certainly should be – deeply personal prayer, but really no such thing as “private” prayer. All Christian prayer, if it is true to its name, is initiated by the promptings of the Holy Spirit received in baptism, who prays in and through the hearts of the baptized — who together are constituted as the body of Christ, the Church.

And even if a private Prayer Place is not available, don't let this keep you from a time of regular communion with God. A young businessman and the only Christian in a large family, told of how he overcame the problem of not being able to find a private place in which to pray.

He travels on an early commuter train that takes about 45 minutes. The principle thus clothed in paradox is, of course, that personal prayer should be strictly personal and private. Our Lord's mode of acting on the principle was, it will be remembered, to withdraw from crowds and cities, and to pass the night in prayer on the lonely slopes of the hills of Galilee (Matthew ; Mark ; John ).

Most Muslims pray on a prayer rug if they’re not in a mosque. Sana Ullah, a Muslim American born in Florida, started an Instagram photo series in January called “ Places You’ll Pray ” to combat negative images of Muslims in the media.

It features photos of Muslims praying in public. What’s more, Revelation pulls back the curtain of heaven to show us that the prayers of all the saints are gathered together in the heavenly places and are poured out together to accomplish God’s great purposes.

Even one person in prayer is never truly alone. God’s people have been praying together since the book of Genesis. The most effective prayers are those when we come humbly before our God, lay ourselves bare before Him, repent of our sins, and ask for His grace and forgiveness.

When was the last time you prayed like that in public. God knows that praying in private is the best place to have "quality time". Wanting to pray publicly so as to be thought highly of is not biblical.

At the same time, avoiding praying in public for fear of embarrassment or out of shame is also not biblical. Both public prayer and private prayer are biblically supported and have a place in the life of a believer. After talking about places, we move on to talking about both public and private places AND behaviors.

We talk about what behaviors are appropriate in each area. This book and additional resources are found for free from SET-BC here and are available in PDF or Boardmaker files. (update: direct link here - other link now takes you to search).
