I was interested in the Lifeline article concerning kneeling while praying (“Prayer Positions,” October 2018). There is no way my knees will allow me to kneel for any reason. I start my day reading my OA literature, writing a thank-you letter to God, and praying while sitting at a table. In my younger days, I often sent my most fervent prayers to God while chasing cattle across a field. He has always been there for me. I don’t believe God cares HOW you pray—just THAT you pray. — Muriel M., Fayetteville, Tennessee USA
