Joseph Smith said, "those who have bodies have power of those who do not". When we pray out loud we are using our bodies in a powerful way and as a result, we claim our power! Words are the beginning of the creation process. God spoke and everything changed. Speaking our words, praying out loud is a great way to change our world.

I have wondered about this myself. However, I have decided that Satan knows most of my problems anyway, and it would not hurt for him to hear them. In addition, I believe that as Satan hears us praying to the Father in the name of the Son he we all realize whom we really worship and perhaps become discouraged, especially if we do it often.

Thank you for this excellent message. I am very reluctant to have prayer vocally for fear of the Adversary & his demons hearing my many vulnerabilities & problems & my cries to the Lord are quiet & private. I would love to know how others feel about this?

I usually pray in silence. I've always been afraid satan would hear my weaknesses, know my thoughts and concerns and use them against me. I suppose I should work harder to have faith and not fear "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind" 2 Tim. 1 :7 Do you have any other advice that might help me overcome this fear?
