When I Look At The World: "People find all kinds of things that bring them to their knees"
Wave Of Sorrow: "Nobility on its knees"
Please: "Get up off your knees"
Mysterious Ways: "On your knees boy"
Moment Of Surrender: "I folded to my knees"

That's all I can think of right now without checking.

Love and Peace or Else: I'm not easy on my knees

Well, Bono's lyrics often carry double meanings, don't they?
Ain't that the truth.
You have to also consider the line right before it as well:
"If you want to kiss the sky"

I always took that as 'getting to Heaven'.

absolutely! but depends what you would define heaven as ;)

I didn't really finish my thought there...

To me, it's someone making a threat about getting to Heaven - If you wanna kiss the sky better learn how to kneel.
Then it moves to a demand - On your knees boy!
Double meaning? Definitely.

He seems to get back to this when he writes - Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel. Luckily.

ok- all of the above-- plus one obvious traditional one-- customary upon proposing.  I think we all forgot that one.

What about on PopMart Sydney when he clearly says to Edge "If you wanna kiss this guy, better learn how to kneel"?

Except that as far as I know, its a tad hard to perform oral sex on a female while she's standing and you're on your knees?!!
