Bow the Knee
Ephesians 3:14

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,” Ephesians 3:14 NASB

Paul’s thoughts returned to praying for the believers and their spiritual needs as he bowed on his knees before God the Father. A number of prayer postures are referenced in Scripture including standing with arms and face lifted upward, standing or sitting with head bowed, bowing on knees, and lying prostrate face down on the ground. Many of these postures demonstrate reverence, respect, submission, surrender, and humility from the one coming into the presence of the Almighty God. These attitudes are more important than a specific prayer posture.

Lord God, by Your grace I humbly come into Your holy and glorious presence. Bowing in reverence and total surrender, I come to worship, glorify, and praise You.
