    Its an eastern tradition to Stand for prayer and face east.. Making deep bows while making the sign of the cross Unless its a penitential day (Fridays) where we would kneel for prayer.

    Good Friday we crawl on our knees to venerate the Tomb

    You have to be on your knees?! I'm glad I don't believe in that god.

    I immediately thought of the following: older folks whose legs just aren't working for them anymore; people with no legs; people (like myself) who feel that all of life can be a prayer.

    If any of you out there do feel that you must be on your knees to pray, I respect you, but ask you to consider the possibilities. This isn't about whether you agree with me or not. It's about the dialogue.

    That's good. But if you were at home, would you pray on your knees....?

    I think it shows respect to the Lord, but I don't think it's a neccsessity.
    I was thinking today if I should get on my knees & pray in my office in front of people.

    Do I not do it because I don't want to embarrass others, embarrass myself, look like a nutter, or ...what......?

    nah I don't. I think it shows respect regardless. but then again i don't even attend church because it's another form of segregation to me. I will not tell you that you are right or wrong, but I respect your opinion.

    True. But as a sign of respect, I think being on your knees is a humbling act. The washing of the feet could be done by a jet spray, but it's the act that is symbolic & humbling.

    Anytime, anywhere, I really don't think body positioning has anything to do with it. I just think God would appreciate you making time for him.

    With practice, I now can be in constant prayer. I pray while walking...Lying down, sitting up, reading a book...why would an infinite being care whether you pray on your knees, or standing on your head?

    It's not always possible to get on your knees, but it's always possible to pray.

    What do you think God is? A perfectionist or something? I've prayed walking back & forth in my appartment. Low and behold, I'm still alive.
    God doesn't care if you were hanging on the chandelier, JUST PRAY.

    Would God reject a heartfelt, adoring prayer because of a supplicant's body position? Of course not.

    I asked this question, because usually in a Church situation everyone tends to get on their knees to pray, so I was curious as to what everyone would consider the proper way to pray. I have prayed while driving, sitting on my couch, at work, standing, just about everywhere that you can't be on your knees at the time. I believe God hears all prayers that come from the heart.

    Prayer is simply conversing with God. It's on you and your relationship with Him on how you feel called to do so.

    Why do you think God never heals amputees? Can't kneel when your leg isn't there!
