The Bible talks about people who pray in public at length, partially to impress others. Two thousand years ago that may have impressed people, but we are asked to pray in private.
Do you think the reverse is true today? If someone openly prayed in public, what would the perception be? Would people think they were a wacko without credibility or be impressed with their commitment? Would that person lose credibility or gain it?
Is it easier to pray in private? Do you bless your food in public, or are you concerned about offending someone else? Strangers have told me that it was refreshing to see me bless my meal. Honestly, my ego does consider what others think of me, though I hate to admit it. You?
Thank you, God, for Grace, Truth, Love, and Laughter,

P.S. Thank you, especially, for grace.
