Assuming a Safe Position

A man was climbing a mountain in the Swiss Alps with two guides that he had hired. It was an extremely windy day, and the trio had made their ascent on the sheltered side of the mountain. Upon reaching the top, the man was so excited to think about the view in front of him that he stood upright—and was almost blown off the mountain by a gust of wind. One of the guides caught hold of him and pulled him down saying, “On your knees, sir! You are safe here only on your knees!”

We live in a dangerous world. The safest way to proceed is on our knees in prayer.

“…Three times a day he (Daniel) got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God…”—Daniel 6:10.
