Prayer veiling is an article of clothing that Mennonite women wear as to cover their hair. Depending on their religious community and the year will depend on the type of veil that they wear. This tradition is said to follow the tradition of Christian prayer veiling, though there is some differences. Present day Mennonites are typically seen wearing a small white cap pinned to their hair which is pulled up tightly in a bun. While past Mennonites were more commonly seen wearing a full head covering bonnet. Prayer veiling is a symbol from the bible, First Epistle to the Corinthians, chapter 11. Read verses 3-10,

"3 But I want you to know that Christ is the head of every man, and a husband the head of his wife,* and God the head of Christ.
