For any of us that have been in church for any length of time have always been told to bow your head and close your eyes to pray. If you grew up in a Christian home as I did with a sibling that would check to see if I had my eyes closed and head bowed at the dinner table and then report to mom and dad if I didn’t not. Moments later realizing the “head smack” moment that was about to happen as they are called out on not having theirs closed.
I have done some reading to find the origins of bowing our heads and closing our eyes. No one is really sure where it comes from. Some people point to Medieval times and the greatest consistent belief that it was a religious act put into practice by the Catholic religion. Regardless of where it originated from it is a religious act that man came up with that has no bearing on the relationship with Christ that He desires to have with us. I did find one church denomination that actually was pointing out that effective prayer had to happen with our heads bowed and eyes closed. Since there is nothing Biblical to support it, it is just a religious act that has no impact on how we communicate with God. In fact, the Bible has examples of just the opposite in prayer. It is really our heart posture that is most important.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
