Closing Eyes Prayer

I remember one of the funny incidents happened when I was still a young Christian 16 years ago is when I prayed together with my spiritual mentor. As we prayer together, I realize that his prayer can really be pretty lengthy. Those days, in my mind, when pray to God, I need to close my eyes because I shouldn’t open my eyes because God is here. So during the prayer together, I tried my keep closing my eyes closed. But the problem is when I keep eyes close for too long, I began to feel a little dizzy. Later, when we plan prayer together, I felt struggle until I ask him this question, “Can I open my eyes when pray together?” He replied, “Who said you can’t open your eye during prayer?” 🙂
