wfw #28 - Praying Hands and Hearts

1 Kings 8:54 "When Solomon had finished all these prayers and supplications to the LORD, he rose from before the altar of the LORD, where he had been kneeling with his hands spread out toward heaven."

The bible tells us that different people prayed in different positions. Some prayed standing up with their hands raised towards heaven, probably the posture that Jesus most often used. Some prayed prostrated. their faces to the ground while others prayed sitting or kneeling. Well, God honor whatever positions we prayed but He does see our Heart.

    Terrific reminder. I have to keep reminding my grandchildren of this one. One wants hands folded. Another hands flat together. I just keep telling them it's what's in your heart that counts. I'll have to show this to them as well. :) Thank you for a good visual reminder for them for Word-filled Wednesday. :)

    i many time pray prostrate because i'm lying in bed...usually in the wee hours of the morning praying for the "paper guy" in the loud van; guy in the diesel truck that comes home at 3:30 a.m....

    praise the Lord he doesn't make us pray in one position!
