Body prayer is an innovative way to connect with God in prayer. In today's world, most of us can attest to the fact that we oftentimes find ourselves overburdened with commitments and rushing from one task to the next.
Praying with our bodies can sometimes allow us to bypass our busy and overanalyzing minds and connect with the Holy Spirit through attention to our bodies. This prayer is called "Palms up Palms down", and is taken form the book Paths to Prayer by Patricia D. Brown ( 2003, pgs. 236-237).
