In our prayer to Him, we pray in one direction, raising our hearts to the One above us. We confess in prayer that we are not above God, as if we could sway Him by our goodness or control Him with our anger, sorrow, or determination. No, the raising of the heart implies the confession and acknowledgement of our true state before Him—beginning with Him being God, and us not. Photo credit: ©Getty Images/Ranta Images
