Pray With Your Eyes Open

Everyone raise your heads, open your eyes, and let us pray. Doesn’t sound too familiar does it? This probably does. Everyone bow your heads, close your eyes, and let us pray. But does scripture say you have to pray with your eyes closed? Would you ever pray with your eyes open?

Pray for America?

Has America ever asked you to pray for “her”? Me neither. So why do we hear the phrase “pray for America”? Like it’s a sick person coughing and sneezing in need of healing. Does America breathe air and bleed blood like the rest of us? This doesn’t make sense to me as a Christian.
