Prostrations At Holy Places
(Psa 5:7) But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy; In fear of You I will worship toward Your holy temple.
 Somet Offer Prostration As Means of Apology
This is like the “Mitaniyas” which a person offer to another.

Therefore we need to understand the spiritual meaning rather than the literal, as the literal destroys.
