Much has been written about what I Corintians 11 is supposed to mean about the head covering as it applies (or doesn't apply) to women. My question, however, is directed to the male. "4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth his head." (KJV) Is this verse only applicable to public worship services? As I understand it, a man's head is Christ. If that's the case, and if this applies to more than just a public worship service, then what happens to a man's prayer if he's got his head covered when he's praying? Does God honor that prayer? I'd hope that He does, because otherwise there have been a lot of men down through the years who've been in combat situations that have prayed with their heads covered with a helmet who surely have hoped that God honors their prayers for help. Please advise on what this verse means and to what situations it applies.
