Most of the time with head bowed in reverence and respect to an almighty God. But if I am in stress and crying out to God with tears and anguish I look up toward heaven as if reaching of to that same God.

I pray anywhere!
In the car
by myself
eyes open or eyes closed
in church
prayer through songs
in prayer groups holding hands
ON MY KNEES.
standing up!
before meals.
WHEN SHOULD WE NOT PRAY?
pray unceasingly.
Thank you God!

If I am driving in my car, I definitely keep head up and eyes open. When alone or in church,I usually bow my head. When praying in person, I do often times keep my eyes open and look at them as God shows me things (sounds wierd)and other times I bow my head. Sometimes I kneel with face to the floor. Depends. No ridgidity.

Head bowed, simply because that is the way I was always told it should be done both in school assembly and in church. I'm not sure that any particular way is the right or wrong way.

Actually both. I very often am on my knees, I raise my hands, I always get on my knees before eating a meal to thank the Lord and to ask God to bless the food. And I as Catherine close my eyes sometimes or pray with eyes opened, especially while driving the car and praising Him! Amen...

i talk to the lord I have a prayer journal and just talk to him
---irene7395 on 9/8/07


"Pray" and "Praise" though they are similar and can be done at the same time, they are quite different. Praying is simply talking with God, whereas Praising is Hailing, saluting, greeting, applauding, extolling, exalting, congratulating, thanking, blessing, honoring, worshipping, glorifying, magnifying, and celebrating the Lord.

I do both and sometimes I kneel and say nothing. Sometimes eyes closed. Sometimes open. But I have to admit usually when I am in those postures, they are closed.

Often with my eyes closed so that I can focus on Him better. I never know whether to look up or down, because bowing one's head is a gesture of respect, but it always seems that I am looking to Hell instead of Heaven even though that isn't so.

I kinda like to look straight into His face myself. I remember one time in worship, I had my head bowed and Father spoke to me and said, "Look up at Me. I'm your Father." To come boldly means just that....boldly, without shame or fear, looking straight into His face. It is more important to bow our hearts than it is to bow our heads. I can bow my head all day long but if my heart is not bowed, the religious tradition avails nothing.

Oops. I meant to say my eyes are on the road. Haha.

When I pray I speak audibly to my heavenly Father through Jesus Christ as though I were speaking to my best friend. P.
---Pierr5358 on 4/19/06


madison we will all be praying now when we drive that your eyes will be on the road and not the wheel in case we meet you. Ha! Ha!
---Exzucuh on 4/19/06


My posture depends on the time I am praying. Sometimes I pray while journaling, writing my prayers like a letter to God. Usually when I am singing praises, my head is turned upward to basque in the glow of His love. I sometimes pray when I am driving, but my eyes are still on the wheel.

Mt 6:5,Mt 6:6,Mt 6:7,Mt 6:9,Mt 9:38,Mt 14:23
,Mt 26:4,Mr 11:24, these scriptures are how Jesus said pray, the red words in the bible are the words of Jesus, follow him instead of some individuals idea.

When I pray, I bow my head in humbleness. But when I praise God, I lift my hands high and I raise my head high, for I am not ashamed in praising God.

Linda answer has become a lesson to me. A lesson from which I can learn to do differently. It's just things like this that brings me great joy to be associated with the Christian blogs.
