We Forbid Women from Praying

Why because we said so but also because some Puritans said so:

We mean it…we’re not joking. “We have seen that the New Testament very clearly requires that only men lead in public prayer. It is worth our further noting that there are no recorded examples anywhere in Scripture of women leading in public prayer (such as 1 Corinthians 11:5- But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head–it is the same as having her head shaved.)
even though they were present. Prior to the law of Moses it appears that the head of the household would lead in worship and “call upon the name of the Lord”. None of this should lead us to undervalue or demean in any way Scripture’s commendation of the private prayers offered by many a Hannah, Anna and others continuing “in supplications and prayers night and day” (1 Tim. 5:5). The presence of women at prayer meetings and public gatherings is vital, for we all join together in prayer, though one only leads. We read in Acts 1:14 that the apostles “all continued in one accord with prayer and supplication, with the women”. There is an honoured mention for the presence of the faithful women, but we see from verses 24 to 25 that while it is said “they prayed”, that is, the whole company, it was evidently one of the apostles who led in prayer. In Acts 4:24 there was a gathering for prayer and “they lifted up their voice to God with one accord”, although it must clearly have been but one person who led in prayer. The point here is that although one was the mouth of the congregation, they all with one accord entered into it and made the prayer their own. “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost” (v. 31). None of what we have noticed upon the point of male leadership is in any way intended to exclude women from this type of participating, nor from the power and blessing that may come from public prayer. What women must not do is to lead in public prayer.”—M. A. Vogan

Now there are some who are too Soft and compromising on our HARD Truth but our Complementarian Doctrine is Clear: women are forbidden from praying in church or publicly. In fact we Discernmentalists take this a step further and forbid women from praying at any time (even silently) just in case they slip up and accidentily pray out loud in front of men and therefore lead men in prayer usurping the authority of their HeadShip. We hope this clears things up and that all get Right with us first for the End is nigh.

I swear (not in an unbiblical way) the Law of the gospel I preach is not something any man made up,
