Every Kind of Prayer

Clarifying Questions and Misunderstandings to stir up every manner of Biblical Prayer


Where is Bowing in Bible?

Bent Knees: 1Ki_8:54; 1Ch_29:20 (Gr: knee; Heb: head); Ezr_9:5; Dan_6:10-11; Eph_3:14

Bowed: Exo_4:31; Neh_8:6; Luk_18:10-14; >> 2Ch_20:18, others: fell on face >> laying on bed

>> Clapping hands and stomping feet

>> “Spiritual Hitting” is Biblical – learn how much do it…  Don’t let social shame rob you of zealously maxing out on faithful strikes of obtaining greatness 

>> Postrate prayer posture – From sticking refs (stomach sticks to ground)

>>Prayer/ sleep: "i know your rising up and your sitting/laying down"


Bowing is Not The Only Way to Pray

Sitting: Mat_26:36-46/ Mar_14:32-42/ Luk_22:39-46; Act_1:14; Act_2:1-4; Act_2:15 (the “third hour” is the hour of prayer)

Standing: Zec_3:1; 1Sa_1:26; Mar_11:25; Luk_18:10-14; (Mat_6:5)

Pacing, Laying, & More: 2Ki_4:31-37 – This is by far my favorite prayer story!

With Lifted Eyes: Psa_3:3; Psa_121:1-2; Psa_123:1; Isa_38:14; Joh_11:41; Joh_17:1; (Luk_18:13); >> Dan_4:34 (Nabuchodonosor looked up & received his understanding back); “Watching in prayer” -- implies opened eyes

With Lifted Hands: Job_16:17; Psa_26:6, Psa_134:2; 1Ki_8:54; Ezr_9:5; Neh_8:6; 1Ti_2:8; (Isa_1:15; Mal_1:9-10; Jam_4:8)

>> lift up the hands that hang limp

Quiet: Psa_46:10; Pro_10:19; Ecc_5:2-3; Ecc_5:7;  Mat_6:7

Pacing: ...march according to spirit


> Add shamefacedness to prayer list (bowed heads) - any more to add to no dating/ avoiding premarital romance


> Add: 9/13/11

if you are not constantly seeking, loving on, speaking to and worshiping Him you lose focus…”


This is one of the main reasons I have the prayer list on my website. The prayer list is more or less a record of all of the major ways God has saved me repeatedly throughout my entire spiritual life. Just about every time I’m ‘saved again’ (in a particular way) I make a few updates to the prayer list. I constantly affirm to those I’m privilege to disciple: ‘if you make it to heaven in the end, salvation will never cease to be an issue for you while you’re here on earth!’ – I also tell people: ‘I believe that there is a lot of hope for your life… But I don’t have any idea how you’re ever gonna make it unless you spend at least 2 hours a day in prayer. In the Bible it was even more!’
