Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.
~Victor Hugo, French poet
That whole praying without ceasing thing? (1 Thessalonians 5:17) I'm getting it down. Sometimes it's a sheer act of desperation--not much more than a, "Lord, have mercy, Lord, have mercy," mantra that bows my soul to the ground. Sometimes it's a "Wow-oh-wow-oh-wow" kind of thank you to God that causes my soul to lift its hands to the sky. And at all times, I'm amazed that God says his ears are opened to our prayers. (2 Chronicles 7:15)
So what's your soul's prayer posture?
