The Bible says at 1 Cor 11:3 (ASV)
But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
Also Ephesian 5:23 adds
because a husband is head of his wife just as the Christ is head of the congregation, he being a savior of this body.
However 1 Cor 11:5 says a woman should cover her head
But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head; for it is one and the same thing as if she were shaven.
An exempt from one article of JW had this to say
A Christian wife would not normally pray aloud in the presence of her believing husband except in unusual circumstances, such as if he has been rendered mute by an illness.
This would rule out a woman praying in whatever circumstances unless the man is infirmed.
So the question is: Is it acceptable in Protestant view for a woman (wife, sister, grown child) to pray in the household when a man present?
I'd like an explanation with backings and not a backlash on any group. Thanks.
