My favorite Christmas song–BAR NONE–is “O Holy Night.” The one line gets me every time, “Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the Angels’ voices” Falling on your knees is not a comfortable posture. And it isn’t attractive. And we don’t see if often. Perhaps because it shows humility and desperation. In 2009-2010, I battled a strong bout of depression. My morning quiet time became unproductive because I honestly didn’t know what to pray, so my prayer journal would go days with no entries. I started praying on my knees. It was weird but I found it to be the most comforting moment in my day. Sometimes, the sun’s rays would beam just the right way through the shutters and I could feel the rays on my back as I was on my knees. As if God was using them to hug me. The depression would sometimes render me horizontal, but praying on my knees got me half way there to standing up. This Christmas, if it’s hard to sing “Fa La La La La, La La La La” take a line from “O Holy Night” and try what I tried. It may be a gift you were looking for.
