  1. I don’t know when kneeling in church started, but I think not in Bible times. The Bible talks about prostrate before the Lord, and bowing before Him (“every knee shall bow…”). Lots of returns on “kneel” in a concordance search…
    From the Greek: στήκετε (stēkete)
    Verb – Present Indicative Active – 2nd Person Plural
    Strong’s Greek 4739: To stand fast, stand firm, persevere. From the perfect tense of histemi; to be stationary, i.e. to persevere.
