40 Days of Prayer Introduction
There are 650 prayers listed in the Bible. The Bible records Jesus praying 25 different times during his earthly ministry. In the Bible, Paul mentions prayer (prayers, prayer reports, prayer requests, exhortations to pray), 41 times. Although prayer can (and should) be done from any bodily position, the Bible lists five specific postures: Sitting (2 Sam 7:18), standing (Mark 11:25), kneeling (Chronicles 6:13; Daniel 6:10; Luke 22:41; Acts 7:60, 9:40, 20:36, 21:5; Ephesians 3:14), with one’s face to the ground (Matthew 26:39; Mark 14:35), and with hands lifted up (1 Timothy 2:8).
