The simple and direct request in Jesus’ Name will accomplish far more than millions of halfhearted and indefinite words. Finally, pray expectantly. God knows when you pray without hope of an answer. You must pray in faith, believing. Jesus often prayed all night in private but His public prayers were very brief. It’s not the posture of the body but the attitude of the heart that counts when we pray. The Bible speaks of bowing in prayer, kneeling on one’s face before God, standing, sitting and walking. The most important thing isn’t the position of the body but the condition of the soul. If the heart is attuned to God, one can pray in any posture imaginable.
