  • Either...God knows all thoughts so it doesn't matter if you speak or think it....

  • I do it both ways. I love praying aloud when I am alone or when I have that option. There are times when it's more feasible to pray silently. While I think God hears us either way, there are many, many scriptures that tell us to cry out to the Lord and otherwise speak aloud to Him.

  • The Creator is All knower, Seer and hearer either way He hears.

  • If someone you love dearly passes away, would you talk to them out loud or silently? Most people would probably say outloud. Why not talk to God both silently and outloud?

  • Doesn't matter, if you fear what someone will hear you pray about, if there is shame, or fear of being hurt then let it be silent for your protection, thats what God says.

  • It doesn't matter. If they are good enough to hear your words all the way down here on earth, they are good enough to hear your thoughts! lol
