Why Do We Pray With Our Eyes Closed? by Omooba77: 7:50am On Aug 05, 2018
Prayer is a weapon and means of communicating with God.
Please why do we close our eyes prayering?
As for me it is to avoid distractions.
Have a blessed Sunday and Happy 66th Convention to All Redeemites!

Because the best way you can avoid distractions and be in the spirit realm is when the eyes are closed. God is a spirit so communication with
him can best be in spirit.

Remember, what you see determines what you think, what you think determines how you behave, how you behave determines what you become.

Imagine in the mood of prayer with eyes open and suddenly one big nyash waka pass and your brain starts processing it because your eyes has seing it.
Then your john thomas responds to stimulus.

Solely for the avoidance of distractions....
What the eyes sees at the point of pray, could influence your thoughts thereby causing spiritually disconnection and distraction.

However, at home where this is less or no distraction. You can open your eyes while praying.

God go still answer!

When a guy is praying with his eyes open one big ass might pass across his line of sight, or when a lady is praying with eyes open another lady putting on a certain fashionable shoe, handbag or dress might pass by.
