RE: * command to pray in a closet *

If a man prays in a closet and there is no one else around to hear it, can God still hear it ?

From Luke 21:36 - Watch ye therefore, and pray ALWAYS...
Will you ALWAYS be in a physical closet ?

Even though God can hear you in a literal closet, this is not referring to a literal physical closet.
Remember how Jesus used many methods to teach.
This "closet" represents where you connect with God directly. i.e., your entire focus is on talking person to person with God alone. ( Note: This "talking" is your heart speaking, not necessarily using your physical mouth. This "heart" is not the physical organ that pumps blood. )
This connection is a secure channel that cannot be tapped into by anyone. God's communication infrastructure far exceeds anything we can yet imagine.

Does a lost man's prayer go unheard ?
God hears all, but...
If a man has not accepted His Son as his own "personal" Saviour, God will only respond to his prayer of true repentance through belief in the Lord Jesus and what He did on the cross. When this happens, there is great rejoicing in Heaven.
