Are You Afraid to Pray in Public?

Are you afraid to pray in public? Let me know your honest answer in the comments. ↓↓

I recently read that public speaking, which prayer falls under, is the #1 fear of people…it’s more feared than dying! Some of the reasons people are afraid are:

  • 1. The fear of failure
  • 2. The fear of actually being intimate with God
  • 3. The fear of transparency before others
  • 4. The fear of becoming emotional or losing control

So…if you have one of those fears, what should you do? I promise you that the answer isn’t “never pray in public”. Instead, try these things:

  1. Pray and ask God to reveal to you the reason you are scared
  2. Ask Him to give you confidence
  3. Practice by praying out loud at your house or in front of your family
  4. Write down what you want to pray about
  5. Memorize Scripture so you can pray His Word
  6. Grow your relationship with the Holy Spirit so He can speak through you
  7. Keep Your prayers short
  8. Be yourself
  9. Remind yourself that prayers are just conversations with God
  10. Remember that God created you to be just who you are and He desires to hear your voice in prayer
