Parcels from the Preacher: May 14, 2023

“On bended knee, I come. With a humble heart, I come. Bowing down before Your holy throne Lifting holy hands to You. As I pledge my love anew. I worship You in spirit. I worship You in truth Make my life a holy praise unto You. And so”

Just a thought, what is the proper position for prayer? Many people over the ages have struggled mightily over this one topic. Was Abraham standing, kneeling, or walking when he prayed for Abimelech in the twentieth of Genesis? Solomon was found on his knees in the eight of First Kings. Some assume by the Lord’s instruction to the hypocrite, in the sixth of Matthew, who stood and prayed vainly that prayer must be done in some prone position as if those in the synagogue had body position issues.

No, it was their hearts. Yes, we should come before the Lord on “bended knee”; this is a position of respecting the One who is honored in prayer. A person can still bend the knee and not mean it. Think about it.

Have the day you are meant to have in Christ alone,

Archie R. Green
