Kneeling vs Sitting Down

2 Samuel 7:18

Then went king David in, and sat before the LORD, and he said, Who [am] I, O Lord GOD? and what [is] my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?
Should you ever kneel when you pray? Should you ever pray without kneeling down? Here's an example that the man after God's own heart "sat before the LORD" to pray a prayer.

I like to kneel when I pray. That's the common example in the Bible. When #666 comes, whoever doesn't worship him or his image, probably kneeling, will be killed, probably beheaded. Now we have a chance to kneel to the True God, Jesus Christ. People kneel to kings, and Jesus is the King of Kings.

But He's answered the prayers I've prayed while I'm sitting down, just like He's answered the prayers I've prayed kneeling. He's just interested in the heart.
