Passionate, Intelligent Prayers

Am I ready to love God passionately?  Life is so distracting.  Days pass before I realize I haven’t really talked to Him.  Our conversations go like this:

“Lord, help me to…”

“Lord, bless me…”

“Lord, gimme, gimme, gimme…”

How I would love to have a regular conversation with the Lord about His world and the people He’s equipped to run it.  We could talk about His favorite time of day, and music that tickles His fancy.  Sometimes I wonder what He would say if I asked,

“How Ya doin’ Lord?”  or,

“How’s Your day going, Lord?”

I want to become passionate about the things the Lord is passionate about, instead of getting bogged down in what to put on my grocery list.  He’s got more important things on His list, like justice, mercy, and humility.  Those are large expectations, until we realize He has promised to do the work through us. 

Lisa Bevere says there are “three instrumental ways to lift the volume to a roar:  with our passion, prayers, and intelligence.  As we consecrate these three areas of our lives, they merge until we love God with passionate, intelligent prayers.”

That’s my goal:  passionate, intelligent prayers.  Will you join me?

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?

Excellent work!, http://ganool.at.ua

First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not
mind. I was interested to find out how you center
yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I've had a tough time clearing my
mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it! ,

We're being bombarded on every side. Our enemy knows our weaknesses and sends us flat on our backs. But we don't have to give up. NO! We keep on following the One who will enable us to follow Him!
