1...Yes, itz in the bible
1st corinthians 11 vs 4 says:

"Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth his head"...

Vs 7says;

"For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God, but the woman is the glory of the man."


2. Itz not a must to close the eyes during prayer...the reason why we close our eyes is because of distractions.

Hope I have answered ur question O.P?smiley

What does it matter?
Have you heard of anyone whom God rejected their prayers for not covering head or closing eyes?
Take a comfortable position to pray. Some pray lying flat or sitting or standing or on top of the mountain. Pray with cap on or off, what does it matter? God is everywhere.

Stuff like this is the focusing on outward appearance that Jesus talked about. So if your eyes are closed and your brain is on something else what is the point. God sees your heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you.
