Chapter Summary

This chapter reprints passages from Vermigli's scripture commentaries on Romans, judges, first Samuel, first kings and first Corinthians. Vermigli devotes considerable discussion to why God sometimes seems to be answering our prayers and sometimes not. Public prayer should be out loud, but private pray may be quiet and in heart. Posture should be respectful, but one may stand, sit, and even lie down in private prayer. Christians can pray anywhere, and there is no need of special places to pray, for Christ is with all Christians wherever they gathered for prayer. Still, public prayer should use fixed prayers, and thus Vermigli turns to practical aspects of public prayer.
