    Is it Biblical that women can Pray in prayer meetings with men present ?
  • English Sacha - in Reply
    Dear Deloras , I don't believe so . In the 'church' , men always preside over services prayers etc . If the congregation has a sisters meeting of some kind , without any brothers , then it's ok for a sister to say a prayer . I hate doing it so avoid it , the reason is , when I pray I feel very emotional and connected and it's a very private time for me . Some say to me : oh just do a basic scripted type of prayer but I can't do that . I pray from my heart or not at all . That's just me though .

    Sister Sacha, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    I pray the Spirit carry you and I into a deeper spiritual understanding.

    The brick and mortar church is not what is reality, God starts us of in this physical church, and then brings us OUT of the physical understanding into spiritual understanding.

    You and I (mankind) are the TRUE CHURCH (temple of God), you and I (mankind, whether male of female) are the WOMAN, Christ is the MAN (husband).

    We as the woman are to be silent in the church and let the man, our husband be the head and do ALL THINGS through HIM. When you have questions, ASK you husband.

    1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam (Christ)(the husband) was not deceived, but the WOMAN (you and I, mankind) being DECEIVED was in the transgression.

    1 Timothy 2:15 Notwithstanding she (THE WOMAN, you and I, mankind) shall be SAVED IN CHILDBEARING (giving birth to the promise SEED, the WORD of God, life, truth, the way), if they continue in FAITH ( Galatians 2:16)( Galatians 2:20) and charity and holiness with sobriety.

    May we grow in wisdom and understanding. GBU

    Hello Deloras. Not much is given in the Bible (NT) on that subject. Even though 1 Corinthians 14:35 states that "it is a shame for women to speak in the church", yet we see in Acts 1:14, "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."

    This was the first instance of the operation of the new Church of Jesus Christ, when all the disciples, Jesus' brothers & the women met in Jerusalem in the Upper Room. They had just witnessed the transfiguration & ascension of their Lord & one can only imagine how their hearts & spirits must have been filled with praise & joy which expressed itself in prayer & praise. Yes, I see that the women also prayed, joining the others present there. Now the Apostle Paul gives another teaching on the covering of heads whilst praying (1 Corinthians chapter 11), but that's another aspect that has caused much division.
