    "On my knees" often (perhaps most often) is used in association with begging.

    "To my knees" is often used to indicate "surrender".

    These are not absolute, however.

    What if I am talking about "tripping over"? Example: I was walking along the street, tripped over and fell down ON/TO my knees.
