After my comments on kneeling for prayer several weeks ago, one of my friends said she has a hard time getting up and down off her knees, even after knee surgery. So what she has done is designate one of her chairs the Count My Blessings Chair. She explained when she needs to have a deeper, longer conversation with God about some issue, she sits in her special chair to talk to him. It reminded me we can’t always be in what we might think is the ideal position or place or circumstance to pray. God must smile at some of our attempts (I hope not excuses) to view our prayer time as so difficult. I hope Donna doesn’t mind, but I might steal that idea from her. Maybe borrow is a better word.

I don’t remember a special position needed in order to pray. I find kneeling painful, but the main thing I think is we pray and stay close to our Savior. Thanks for your messages!
