Any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled disgraces her head

In today’s world while praying at home or in the church women do not use veil. As per the below bible verses it is not correct. I am not an expert in explaining the bible, just a normal man only. But in my childhood days and even now I see many women put some cloth on their head while praying. But for some women, it is a fashion or may be they are not aware of the bible verses or custom which a christian woman should follow.  Kindly read the below bible verses in which St. Paul clearly saying what we should follow as Christians.

1 Corinthians 11:2-11

Head Coverings

2 I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions just as I handed them on to you. 3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the husband is the head of his wife, and God is the head of Christ. 4 Any man who prays or prophesies with something on his head disgraces his head, 5 but any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled disgraces her head—it is one and the same thing as having her head shaved. 6 For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or to be shaved, she should wear a veil. 7 For a man ought not to have his head veiled, since he is the image and reflection of God; but woman is the reflection of man. 8 Indeed, man was not made from woman, but woman from man. 9 Neither was man created for the sake of woman, but woman for the sake of man. 10 For this reason a woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man or man independent of woman. 12 For just as woman came from man, so man comes through woman; but all things come from God. 13 Judge for yourselves: is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head unveiled? 14 Does not nature itself teach you that if a man wears long hair, it is degrading to him, 15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering. 16 But if anyone is disposed to be contentious—we have no such custom, nor do the churches of God.

Married life is a gift from God. Every couple wish to be happy in married life. A good wife is a major part of the happy married life. Every married man wishes to have a good wife. After marriage many people advise the new bride to be a good wife to her husband. What are the qualities of a good or perfect wife? Most of these qualities of a good wife are already inbuilt in a woman and the rest can be developed.

Never be rude to husband, his family and friends. Be warm, kind, positive, understanding and friendly. Welcome husband with a smile when he comes home instead of a sour face. A good wife honors her hubby by keeping a pleasant tone in her voice, a happy smile on her face and a neat and clean appearance.

Always speak in a loving way and refrain from speaking in a harsh manner. Treat husband with respect in front of others and at home.

Good Communication helps to build trust and strengthen relationship. Communication is the key to a good and solid married life. Be a good listener when husband is talking. Don’t greet him with complaints and problems the moment he comes back from work.

Support your husband in all stages of his career and life. Do not belittle husband or hurt his ego. It is often heard saying that ‘a wife can make a man or break a man’. Be proud of him on his accomplishments and genuinely complement him.

A good wife need to understand that her husband has a life other than her also. He has his family, friends and colleagues who too are part of his life. Don’t stop him if he wants to go out and hang out with his friends sometimes or engage in a hobby or sport that he likes.

Sexual intimacy is one of the most essential things in married life. Keep him happy.

Men likes praises and appreciation. Make the best of your time together. Express love and appreciation often to him.
Be honest, loyal and dedicated to him.

A loyal wife brings joy to her husband,
    and he will complete his years in peace.

A good wife is a great blessing;

Whether rich or poor, his heart is content,
    and at all times his face is cheerful. (Sirach 26:1 to 4)

The Blessing of a Good Wife

13 A wife’s charm delights her husband,
    and her skill puts flesh on his bones.

14 A silent wife is a gift from the Lord,
    and nothing is so precious as her self-discipline.

15 A modest wife adds charm to charm,
    and no scales can weigh the value of her chastity.

16 Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord,
    so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home.

17 Like the shining lamp on the holy lampstand,
    so is a beautiful face on a stately figure.

18 Like golden pillars on silver bases,
    so are shapely legs and steadfast feet. (Sirach 26:13 to 18)

If  wife want her husband to treat her like a queen, he should treat him like a king. In this modern world where most wives also work the above mentioned may not be fully practical. But at least some efforts can be put to put these tips into practice and try to be a Joyful wife and a blessed wife.

The Evil of a Wicked Woman

Holy Bible

Some women get married and then don’t do their duties as a mother and a wife. While the husband is at work paying the bills, the wife gets into mischief. That wife is a dead weight in her husband’s life. She drags him down. The way of a wicked woman is to divorce the husband of her youth. The way of a wicked woman is to divorce and then shack-up, living in adultery after quitting her marriage.

16 I would rather live with a lion and a dragon
    than live with an evil woman.

17 A woman’s wickedness changes her appearance,
    and darkens her face like that of a bear.

18 Her husband sits among the neighbors,
    and he cannot help sighing bitterly.

19 Any iniquity is small compared to a woman’s iniquity;
    may a sinner’s lot befall her!

20 A sandy ascent for the feet of the aged—
    such is a garrulous wife to a quiet husband.

21 Do not be ensnared by a woman’s beauty,
    and do not desire a woman for her possessions.

22 There is wrath and impudence and great disgrace
    when a wife supports her husband.

23 Dejected mind, gloomy face,
    and wounded heart come from an evil wife.
Drooping hands and weak knees
    come from the wife who does not make her husband happy.

24 From a woman sin had its beginning,
    and because of her we all die.

25 Allow no outlet to water,
    and no boldness of speech to an evil wife.

26 If she does not go as you direct,
    separate her from yourself. (Sirach 25:16 to 26)

Please don’t follow the way of a wicked woman!
