Passionate Prayer

It is said, and from experience I have learned, that our most passionate prayers are spoken under duress. We find deep and meaningful conversations occurring with God in foxholes, inside prisons, and in hospitals. We don’t seek out these places, in fact we try to avoid them as much as possible, but when we find ourselves there it is not unusual to turn our prayerful attention into an outpouring of heart. Church is usually is a comfortable and safe place to be, and so it is difficult to pour out the same emotions as we would in those places where we fear for our lives.

On this Monday, ask your self how do I bring passion to my conversations with God from my quiet place or comfortable chair. How do we let go of those thoughts they lay deeply inside?
