When is the last time you KNELT to pray?

40 days
He walked away, about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, Luke 22:41
Jesus “knelt and prayed.”  Prayer is more than words, much more.  The very act of kneeling was an integral part of Jesus’ praying.  For in the kneeling, He was praying.  Throughout the Bible, faith and body were always closely connected to one another. Worship was never merely words sung.  Prayer was always more than words expressed. Imagine approaching a King to make a request. The subject puts herself/himself at the mercy of the King by bowing—an act that shows her/his complete vulnerability to the Sovereign’s power.
As Jesus knelt and prayed, He said, Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done” Luke 22:42.
Is there an area of your life that you have struggled to surrender to the Father?
Do you trust that His will is perfect and that He is faithful in all His ways?
Find a quiet place where you can get alone with God. If you are able, physically kneel down, head bowed, neck exposed and arms outstretched with your palms upward.  The focus of this time of prayer is not so much to say something with your mouth, but rather to let your body do the talking. 
The very act of kneeling better postures your heart and mind to surrender to God.
Your pastor and partner in prostrating ourselves before the Lord,
