Player posture is critical to sound performance…head up or head down, legs straight or legs bent, arms at sides or arms over head. Each sport, position or play may require a different posture for perfect play. The resolve to maintain these postures is critical to the athlete’s development and the team’s success.
Our body-posture before the Lord may be kneeling by a bed or at a church bench, sitting in a special chair in the corner of our bedroom or even during our daily routines of life. It can be with arms raised, or knees down, in a circle of prayer or alone in the car. Whatever the physical position, the PERFECT POSTURE before our Creator involves the position of our heart. It is expressing not what we think He wants us to say but rather our true attitudes and thoughts. This honest and sincere call-out to our mighty God brings us into full communication with Him …it is prayer from the heart!
“It is not the body's posture, but the heart's attitude that counts when we pray.” Billy Graham
“…let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him.” Hebrews 10:22 NLT
