See how to honor God
Not just body prayer positions but full body positions which reveal total honor to God.
The Bible reveals 3 body prayer positions and we, Christians, must always position our bodies in positions to honor God.
How to position the body in prayer
Prayer time is the most important time to a Christian because it is the time when a person presents oneself for intimacy and communication with God. It is the time to show the highest degree of honor to God.
Many Christians do not position there bodies in positions to honor God when talking to Him. I have stressed out how to honor God and 3 reasons to honor God.
Not just one member of the body honoring God but full body honor to God is important.
Honoring God is beyond saying or uttering words of honor to Him but first presenting our bodies honorably to Him; in positions of honor. Right body prayer position is so much important because God looks at you and sees true submission and respect to Him and who He is.
When the bible says, ‘I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Rom: 12:1, first, it means that you humble and lower your body fully before God.
The 3 best body prayer positions to honor God
There are 3 best body prayer positions to honor God as put across the Bible and these are the prayer positions which Jesus taught me in my testimony.
The 3 best body prayer positions are;
1. Kneeling down
- Look at the way Daniel did.
Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime (Dan 6:10).
- Jesus, the son of God, knelt before his father to pray.
And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed (Lk 22:41).
If the son knelt to talk to His father, who are we if we cannot kneel down and present our bodies in honor to God?
- Peter prayed when kneeling down on His knees Act: 20:36.
Also look at the following verses Act: 21:5, Act: 20:36, Act: 7:60.
- Believers of Jesus used to kneel down before Him, Mat 17:14, Mk 1:40, Mk 10:17.
- Solomon knelt before the lord.
And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven (1 Ki 8:54). Also see 2 Ch 6:13.
Kneel down and spread hands to the heaven
As seen from Solomon, we can kneel down and spread our hands to the heaven.
Jesus said this, ‘And whenever u stand praying’ mark 11:25.
3. Bowing down
You can kneel down or stand and bow with face toward the earth.
- John 19:30: When Jesus had received the vinegar, he said, it is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
By bowing his head, Jesus gave honor to his father and humbled Himself before Him (God) for the sake of me and you.
- Deut 5:9: Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God.
This is a commandment which we must obey and God meant that we must only bow down to Him.
Present your body honorably to God in the 3 best body prayer positions.

Biblical Prayers, Praying
Christian Prayer: A Scriptural Model
A model for Christian prayer is found in the Gospel of Matthew. Jesus Christ himself gave all of us a pattern for prayer:
“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13, KJV).
Christian Prayer: An Interpretation For All Of Us
The model for Christian prayer in Matthew 6 is known as the Lord’s Prayer. Many of us have recited this prayer for years, but have never truly meditated on its meaning. The following are spiritual snippets based on the Lord’s Prayer that can help deepen your prayer life with God:
“Our Father” – God wants us to approach Him as “Daddy” (Aramaic: Abba). He wants to take care of us and protect us. God desires intimacy. Remember, He has infinite love and grace. God wants us to be secure in His family as adopted children and heirs.
“Which Art in Heaven” — Look up to God. Fear Him and revere Him. He is all-powerful and can deal with all our problems, even the big ones. But He loves us so much that He doesn’t stay up there.
“Hallowed be Thy Name” — Holy, holy, holy. Approach God with awe and wonder. Save the word “awesome” for God. Live a life that honors Him.
“Thy Kingdom Come” – “Take this job and love it!” Working on behalf of God’s kingdom is the ultimate joy. Bloom where you’re planted. Do everything as unto the Lord. Find your gifts and use them. Be open to God’s leading each day.
“Thy Will Be Done” – God is the potter; we are the clay. God keeps us spinning on His potter’s wheel, shaping and reshaping us as He bathes our lives in tears to make us more Christ-like so He can use us for His will. Surrender daily. Keep your clay moist through daily prayer.
“On Earth as it is in Heaven” — Thy will be done – not my will be done!
“Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread” – Trust! God will provide for our needs. His eye is on the sparrow and I know He cares for me.
“Forgive Us Our Debts as We Forgive Our Debtors” — Forgiveness = Surrender. Don’t carry your own backpack – surrender it to Him. Revealing the feeling is the beginning of healing. Act as if you have forgiven and the feeling will follow. In our weakness, God sends His strength and peace.
“Lead Us Not Into Temptation” – Watch for unrecognized temptation. Pray, so you won’t fall. We are tempted every day. It deepens our walk and strengthens our faith – but be careful of spiritual blindness. Open my eyes, Lord, to my blind spots – use honest friends and family.
“Deliver Us From Evil” — The Evil One, Satan. We are saved from death to life. Jesus is more powerful than Satan – God is greater!
“For Thine Is the Kingdom (obedience), and the Power (confidence) and the Glory (joy), Forever” — This is our Father’s world. Everything we have is His. He is the ruler!
