What does the Bible say about people in a public meeting praying for the salvation of someone in front of him, without explicit permission?

Consider the situaton:

One comes to a new fellowship and the fellowship prays for the salvation of the newcomer, speaking his name in public. Wouldn't this put the newcomer in an awkward situation? Maybe he is part of another fellowship and feels that he is already saved. Or maybe he is a seeker who is not ready to become saved. What does the Bible say about this, if anything?

1 Timothy 2:1 - 15

ESV - 1 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people. 2 For kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.
