Preparation for Worship

On a women’s retreat, my roommate said, “I’m going ahead to our room.” 30 minutes later, I opened the door to our room, expecting to find her asleep. Instead, she was kneeling beside her bed. Her head was bowed, and her hands were clasped in prayer. I slipped into the bathroom so that I would not disturb her.  Later, she told me that she knelt in the evening when she prayed for many years. She did this with her husband beside her even on their honeymoon.  The Bible mentions many different postures for prayer, but her example inspired me to kneel for my evening prayer. I found that this posture helps me to focus and give God my full attention. Perhaps my friend’s silent message was the most important lesson I learned from the retreat.    Peggy Lonmire
