Dear Friend:

   Frequently the question is asked, "Why don't you have prayer on your program as is done on other religious broadcasts?

   There is no other broadcast like The WORLD TOMORROW. It is unique and different from others in many ways. There are no pleas for money. The literature is paid for in advance so that it may be sent free to those requesting it.

   The reason why Mr. Armstrong does not pray on the broadcast is because the Bible forbids it! Notice the teaching of Jesus Christ: "And WHEN thou prayest, thou shalt NOT be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men..." (Matt. 6:5).

   Many of the people listening to The WORLD TOMORROW broadcast are unconverted. They are not interested in hearing a flowery prayer and sentimental words. We do not pray to be heard by the man on the streets. Instead, we follow Christ's instructions: "But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret..." (Matt. 6:6).

   Jesus Christ said to pray privately NOT on the street corners or over the air. Our prayers are for God to hear, not the world!
