The instruction here is by Christ, who always prayed in secret private place not to be seen of men He did often bless things openly, not to be confused with praying as they were never the same.. We also by study find that not the content of the prayer was a secret, but the act of praying was alone, not to be seen of men. In the instruction doctrine it is very clear that by refuseing to do so we cannot expect to be rewarded.. So! For opening meetings of any kind a blessing is in order not prayer ..
