Ways to pray

Here are some really cool/effective ways to pray:

Hands Raised:
I find that having my hands raised in prayer, feels as though I am reaching towards the heavens, reaching for God's hand!

Nehiamiah 8:6 "Ezra praised the LORD, the great God; and all the people lifted their hands and responded, "Amen! Amen!"

Bowing:
It's so awesome to humble yourself to God, by this positon.

Psalm 5:7 "But I, by your great mercy, will come into your house: in reverence will I bow down toward your holy temple."

kneeling:
God's being/prescence makes me want to fall to my knees in surrender!

Ezra 9:5 "Then, at the evening sacrifice, I rose from myself abasement, with my tunic and cloak torn, and fell on my knees with my hands spread out to the LORD my God."

Prostrate (facedown, lying down):
This prayer position is not as common as most, and feels so intimate

1 Kings 18:39 "When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, "the LORD - he is God! The LORD -he is God!"

If there are any other ways to pray that you practise, or heard of..please-feel free to add to my list!
