There's nothing like prostration! You are the nearest to Allah in that position, you will draw near to Allah and it's the best position to make duah. Prostration is the best thing you can do.
There's a verse in the Qur'an, prostrate and draw near to Allah.
That's the way, Allah will love the person when he does a lot of prostration, and Allah will reward him.
There was a servant who used to serve the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, his name is Rabi'ah رضي الله عنه. He used to serve the Prophet and give water to the Prophet to make wudu. One day the Prophet wanted to recompense him, he asked Rabi'ah, 'O Rabi'ah what do you want from me?'
Rabi'ah said, 'I want to accompany you in Paradise.'
The Prophet asked him 'anything else Rabi'ah?'
Rabi'ah replied? 'That's all O Messenger of Allah.'
The Prophet said, 'Help me by doing a lot of prostration.'
That's what the sujood is all about.
