I'm not implying that prayers must be prayed kneeling. Please understand what I'm saying- my prayer life is not appropriate for a servant of Christ. The prayers utter from my lips often fly out nonchalantly with little reverence. A few "Help me" heres and "I need you" theres are my most popular phrases. God does want to "help me" and He loves to hear me acknowledge my need for Him. However, are relationship can not stay at this level. Growth in the area of prayer is mandatory for our relationship to be healthy. Prayer is my means of communication with Him- we all know that communication is the most important factor of any relationship.
God has been convicting me in this area for a little while, and I can see the growth that has already begun in my heart. But I still have to ask myself regularly: "Am I interceding for people, am I repenting, and am I offering Thanksgiving?". My prayer is that God will make me mindful of my selfishness in prayer.
So, maybe my knees don't show signs of consistent prayer, but that's not the condition they will stay in because I need intimacy with God. I am unable to live a life worthy of the title "Christ Follower" without His constant fellowship.
In His Love,
