Sunday Morning Peace
How Should I Pray?
"The proper way for man to pray," said Deacon Lemuel Keyes, "the only proper attitude is down upon his knees."
"Nay, I should say the way to pray," said Reverend Doctor Wise, "is standing straight with outstretched arms, with rapt and upturned eyes."
"Oh, no, no, no," said Elder Snow, "such posture is too proud. A man should pray with eyes fast-closed and head contritely bowed."
"It seems to me his hands should be austerely clasped in front, with both thumbs pointing to the ground," said Reverend Doctor Blunt.
"Last year I fell in Hodgkin's well headfirst," said Cyri Brown, "with both my heels sticking up, my head pointing down, and I done prayed right then and there. Best prayer I ever said, the prayingest prayer I ever prayed--a standing on my head."
