On Your Knees

Ephesians 3:14-19

Thought for Today: “Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.”  Psalms 95:6

I work as an overnight stocker at the local retail store of a major department store chain.  I generally know where different items belong, but on one night I had searched for some time for the proper location of one brand of domestics.  During my to-that-point futile search, I accidentally dropped my ball point pen.  When I knelt down to the floor to retrieve the writing instrument, my eyes glanced to a nearby, lower shelf.  There, obscured by merchandise which had blocked my view while I was standing, were the brand of items, now readily seen from my kneeling position.  By going to my knees, I had found the answer to my quest!

How often do we, as Christians, deny ourselves the answers humble and sincere communication with our Heavenly Father can bring?  As the words of an old hymn advise, “Take it to the Lord in prayer,” while a line in a more-recently written hymn says “Let us praise God together on our knees.”

Prayer: Lord, help us to remember that you are always there to hear our prayer, whether it be supplication or adoration.  In the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior, we pray.  Amen
