The Women’s Veil and Honor in Worship
“Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. But every woman who prays or prophecies with her head uncovered dishonors her head.”
1 Corinthians 11:1
According to 1 Corinthians, women should worship with their heads covered, while men should worship with their heads uncovered. Apostle Paul instructed the Early Church on honoring God during worship—men shouldn’t cover their heads since they are the image and glory of God (1Co 11:7). Hence, women in the Church of God consistently wear veils during worship or prayer as a demonstration of reverence to God.
