When Your Knees Stop Bending


Some of us as we grow older have trouble with our knees. Some have difficulty stooping down. And lowering ourselves to the ground. Some find it impossible to get down on our hands and knees. Or down on the ground on our faces. This, friend, is a vital message on prayer.

There is something beautiful, and very biblical, when we get down on our knees and pray to God almighty. Or when we lie down prostrate on the ground before the Lord and pray our hearts out. These positions demonstrate humility, submission to God, surrender, trust in Him, dependence on Him, and desperation. Our desperation to cry out to God in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

But some people due to age, or disability, or circumstances, or because they are not led to do so at a particular time, may not get down on their knees and faces to pray. Some may simply find their knees no longer bend as they once did.

But never, ever, absolutely ever should we stop praying! And the position, and posture, of our hearts, whether down on our knees and faces or not, should be of humility, submission, trust, dependence, and desperation as we cry out to God.

Regardless of the condition and ability of your knees, may you pray, pray, pray, and keep on praying. Cry out, cry out, cry out to the Lord. AMEN!

“pray without ceasing,” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 NKJV

“Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,” Luke 18:1 NKJV
