According to wikipedia:
"Close up image of a mantis' face (Archimantis latistyla) showing its compound eyes and labrum. The structure of the compound eye creates the illusion of a small pupil."

This mantis is praying allright. Praying for something to eat. These things know how to eat. I caught a few where I lived in Queens in the 1950s. Some were huge in size.
