Is there an ideal prayer position?
Biblical examples show that God hears the prayers of His people regardless of the position in which they pray—although it’s important that we don’t take a flippant or disrespectful approach to our prayers. For most people who are physically able to do so, the biblical example of private prayer is on one’s knees (Ephesians 3:14).
The Bible answers the questions: To whom should we pray? When should we pray? How long should our prayers be? Should our prayers be public or private? What or whom should we pray for? Is there a prescribed posture to assume in prayer? The Lord’s Prayer was part of Jesus’ instruction about how to pray.
