Did you ever wonder what’s the best position for prayer? You’ve probably heard the saying, the most fervent prayer is the one prayed by someone hanging upside down in a well. As we can be thankful that experience is unlikely, how should we pray. This came to mind because C.S. Lewis thought kneeling was the best, even though with his osteoporosis, he couldn’t in later life. I can relate. When I kneel, the pain in my knees distracts me, cutting prayer time short. Though I agree with Lewis that kneeling can instantly put me in a prayerful attitude, my main issue is not the position I’m in, it’s ridding myself of distractions. That’s why, though I talk to God throughout the day, setting aside a special time for focused prayer is especially important, no matter the position.
