I am never closer to you than when I am kneeling and looking up,

It is this humble posture that reminds me that you are in charge,

As a human this false feeling of control is an illusion I can not afford,

I kneel to say thank you for my health, my life, my family and all those gifts you have given me,

I kneel to say please take the parts of me that do not serve God, myself or others,

I kneel to ask you to forgive when I stray away from your will for me,

I kneel for those I love and for those I don’t yet love as you do,

I kneel to say thank you for all the times you have brought me peace in impossible situations,

I kneel because I am so grateful I have a loving God to kneel to!!! And So it is.
