What is prayer? Prayer is a form of communication between you and God. In the Bible we are told that when you pray you’re supposed to lock the door and pray in secret. The reason for this is because the pharisees of the time used to stand where everyone could see them so the people could admire them, so it was used to make names for themselves. Another thing is there is no position that you have to pray in, you could pray anyway you want to as long as the way you pray is pleasing to the Lord. There are some people who say you have to be on your knees and that you must have your eyes closed, but you can do it anyway you want as long is you are not distracted.
