Did Jesus Really Bow Down And Pray Like A Muslim? These Bible Verses Answers The Question

People's incorrect assumptions about the form of prayer that Jesus used when he was described in the Bible have sparked controversies throughout history, and these debates continue today. A small group of priests, preachers, and prophets argue that Jesus never used the Muslim petition approach, and that what is shown in the Bible is drastically different from how Muslims beg. Is it, on the other hand, truly extraordinary?

People in Islam bow their heads to the ground when praying. Is it true that Jesus used and taught the Islamic technique of prayer?

— Answer

Matthew 26:39 He continued walking for a few more before falling and asking "If at all possible, Father, please take away this cup from me. But not in the way that I intend, but rather in the way that you intend."

— Posture

People pray in a variety of ways in Islam, including bending their heads to the ground (which involves bending at the waist and facing the ground). Muslims face the Kaaba in Mecca five times a day and pray a ritualistic prayer known as salah or salat in Arabic. Islam asserts that Jesus taught/demonstrated this praying practice in Matthew 26:39.

First, we learn that Jesus knelt with his face to the earth and prayed in Matthew 26:39 and Mark 14:35. Is there any proof in the Bible that God's people prayed in various ways?

- Kneeling1 Kings 8:54; Daniel 6:10 (and prayed three times per day); Acts 7:60, 20:36; Ephesians 3:14; Philippians 2:9-11.

Standing - 2 Chronicles 20:5.

Facedown - Numbers 16:22, 20:6; Joshua 5:14; Revelation 7:11.

Hands Raised - Psalms 134:2, 141:2.

The fact that Jesus prayed in this manner does not mean that he did so on a consistent basis. God finds a prostrate heart more enticing than a prostrated body. Furthermore, when teaching the disciples how to pray in Matthew 6:5-15, Jesus did not establish any perspective.
