Today is Wednesday. This is the day that the major of churches have their mid-week church service. I'm not sure if people go to the alter to kneel and pray during mid-week service like they probably would during a prayer meeting service.
Every now and then during the mid-week service, the Holy Spirit compels individuals to go to the alter to kneel and pray. Some of them are there for a while but at that time, I don't believe that they are concerned about whether their knees are hurting or not since they are so caught up in the moment.
I know I was caught up one Friday night service and I danced for hours before the Lord. I took no thought about how I was going to feel the next day. When the service was over, I was actually strengthened not only in the spirit but in the natural as well. But dancing is different than kneeling to pray in the sense that our knees are more sensitive when used.
Utilizing a kneeling prayer pillow during your time of prayer for an extended period of time will not only benefit you spiritually but also prevent you from having problems with your knees because of kneeling on them. Here is a scripture that I feel expresses my heart about being in the house of God.
Take 60 seconds and meditate on the following scripture pertaining to the giver of strength:
Blessed are they that dwell in thy house; they will be still praising thee. Selah. Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. King James Version
Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. New International Version
How happy are those who can live in your Temple, singing your praises. Happy are those who are strong in the Lord, who want above all else to follow your steps. The Living Bible
Write a prayer to the hand of Him who strengthens based on the memorized verse:
Thank you God for strengthening me as I go to your sanctuary. My desire is to be more like you. As I pray, help me to be transformed into your image.
Write down what God's will is for you as the one who strengthens based on the memorized verse:
God wants me to be glad to come to the house of God to pray, praise and walk out his promises. I am to be a living example of God in the earth to the world.
Write down what God wants you to go and do based on His strength to reap the harvest:
God wants me to fellowship with the saints in his house and invite others who don't know him to come and get to know Him as thier Lord and Saviour.
In conclusion, a kneeling prayer pillow can be used in the house of God as well as in your personal home. Let's get to the house of God as often as we can so that we can be strengthen for what God has planned for our lives.
