Physical Expressions of Prayer, Part 6


Imagine yourself sitting on a hillside overlooking a lake.  A light breeze rustles your hair as you soak up the sunshine.  Jesus sits beside you.  What do you want to say to Him?  What is He saying to you?

Sitting with Jesus in prayer can be a position of intimate friendship.  Relaxed. Restful.  We enjoy meeting with friends and engaging in conversation, getting to know one another more, a time to ask questions and to listen.

In 2 Samuel 7:18 it says, “Then David the King went in and sat before the Lord, and he said, ‘Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my house, that You have brought me this far?’”

What are the questions on your heart that you’d like to ask Jesus if He was sitting next to you right now?  Picture Him there.  Make your prayer times more real as you interact with Him as friend to friend.

Mary sat at Jesus’ feet, listening to His words.  Though Martha wanted Mary to help her serve, Jesus said “But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen the good part which will not be taken from her.”  Luke 10:42

At different times and places, we encounter God in various ways.  Sometimes we approach Him with awe and reverence, kneeling or bowing down.  Other times, we stand in praise, raising our hands up to him.  Maybe as an act of surrender, we lay down prostrate before Him.  However we come to Jesus, He delights in us, drawing us into fellowship with Himself.
