They would often catch you even if you did that, depending on how close to the body you were and if citizens saw you and pointed you out. The whole point was that you dressed as a monk, and they were slow to suspect a monk of murder. In the later levels when you are warned the towns know who you are, you get caught almost immediately whether you pray or not.
