The Biblical posture for prayer?

I remember reading somewhere that the dominant posture for prayer in Scripture is either kneeling or standing (there is some occasional praying when folk are in bed, but most biblical praying happens when people are either kneeling or standing). So there I was minding my own business having forgotten this thought when a quote from Luther suddenly brought it all  back:

Never think that you are kneeling or standing alone, rather think that the whole of Christendom, all devout Christians, are standing there beside you and you are standing among them in a common, united petition which God cannot disdain.

Is it time we stopped sitting when praying?
