Lol, any reason why you are quoting that particular passage from St. Matthew, Snowdog?

Jesus's words about prayer.
A bit different from Paul's interpretation of Jesus's words about prayer.

Hope the interview goes well Al! []

Let us know how it goes, Alexius - []

Mr. Snowy, when I read Jesus' words about public prayer, I choose to believe he is addressing the heart motive of those who choose to do so. If we are doing it to try to "appear spiritual" we can be assured that the Lord will not hear. I don't think Jesus was discouraging anyone from praying wherever they were.

Also, one of the possible translations of the term, "closet" is, "secret place." Our "secret place" for prayer can be beneath a prayer shawl, also known as our personal "tent." That's one of the reasons the Jewish people wear the shawl. [] If anyone is interested, do a study of "secret Place" and also "tent", "tabernacle" and "veil." I loved it when I found out that the most likely translation of "Tabitha" in the New Testament is, "talitha" - She who customarily wears the veil, the "talit". []

The Apostle Paul doesn't say to blow a trumpet about the fact that we are praying without ceasing. He just says, do it. Under your breath or out loud, let every word, every action, every thought, every motive be captive to our Lord Jesus Christ. Anyway, that's how I read it. I pray I am not being judged for being open about my faith. I pray no one takes offense.
