Prayer Postures

When you pray are you supposed to sit? stand? kneel? or what? There’s no one right position to pray in. . . praying on your knees bring no more answers than walking as you pray. . . the condition of your heart is what matters! God is listening to those who have a clean and humble heart.

Here are just a few of the Prayer Posters found in the Bible. . .

    I lay prostrate before the LORD those forty days and forty nights because the LORD had said he would destroy you. Deuteronomy 9:25 NIV

    Then the Israelites, all the people, went up to Bethel, and there they sat weeping before the LORD. They fasted that day until evening and presented burnt offerings and fellowship offerings to the LORD. Judges 20:26 NIV

    When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven. Nehemiah 1:4 NIV

    I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. Psalms 63:4 NIV

    Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before. Daniel 6:10 NIV

    Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will." Matthew 26:39 NIV

    After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. John 17:1 NIV
