Prayer Postures

I love this picture anyway I was the camp pastor at a local camp this past week. Part of my duties was to lead worship with my wife (who we all know is the real worship leader). Anyway, I thought I would experiment with the relatively conservative audience. In the morning worship gatherings I took the people through a journey of prayer postures.
I have been influenced by numerous authors and books, including scripture!!!!

So not knowing if this was going to work, I closed my eyes and went for it…boy was I surprised…I thought that most people would think that this was “New Agey” or just a gimmick. I was wrong many people loved it. I was especially surprised to see how many people participated in the posture of kneeling, even head to the ground posture. It got me thinking….maybe the charismatic, evangelical culture is desiring something more rich in their faith?

So my plan is to post on this blog a seven day session of prayer postures, scripture readings followed by a prayer. These can be used in any gathering of believers. What I discovered was the richness of both the postures, the reading of scripture and the heart felt prayer.

Thoughts?
