Praying Out Loud

Junior is a very conscientious person. He tries to obey God’s word and prays to God often. It is his habit to pray to God for the food before his meal.

One day, he read in the Bible that Jesus did not like those who prayed loud in public so they could bring attention to themselves, Matthew 6:5-6. He could see how someone could use something so precious as prayer to make himself look good before others.

On Sunday after church, the family went to a restaurant and Junior’s father wanted to say a prayer before they had their meal. Junior was not sure if this was right to do?
