While I was looking around for an image to put in my last post, I came across a picture of a knight praying. I have always been fond of such images. In my opinion, a knight in prayer is the perfect symbol of true masculinity. The knight already symbolizes strength, courage, devotion, and chivalry. When he prays, he shows his humility, his commitment to the Lord, and his power against "the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places" (Eph 6:12). I truly believe that a knight in prayer is everything that all men are called to be.
Here are a few examples of what I have in mind:
