About the position while praying


Is it a sin to pray on bed? What about praying while listening to music, is it a sin?

God has not commanded in the Bible to pray only in a certain position, which shows that He is more interested in the state of our hearts than in the position we take while praying.

In Psalm 63 the king and prophet David wrote about himself:

My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, for You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings I sing for joy. (Psalm 63:5-7)(NASB)

Then, in another psalm, the same author writes:

Let the godly ones exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth… (Psalm 149:5-6)(NASB)

It does not say in the Bible that it is wrong to listen to music, but sometimes the lyrics of the songs can prevent you to focus when you pray.
