According to him, he was approached by a priest who proved to him that the act is not scriptural.

He wrote:-

“I am in Ethiopia, where I went to an Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The priest asked the congregation to pray and I closed my eyes to pray.

The priest came to me and asked in Amharic ‘why are you closing your eyes’. I said ‘because we are praying’. He said ‘where do you see that in Scripture’. I was speechless. Ethiopians are the oldest Christians in the world, bar none.

They became Christians a year after Christ’s death (Acts 8:38). Jews and Ethiopian Christians do not close their eyes to pray. The practice is a European tradition, originating from the practice of making petitions to kings, of which protocol demanded that your eyes be closed. So many traditions we think are Scriptural, are not!”
