Passionate and Desperate Prayer

We seldom see people praying passionately and desperately. People who pray this way have been stripped of their confidence in their self, their concern about the opinions of others and their pride.  Hannah was a women who prayed like this. When she came to the temple and poured out all her frustrations, she appeared drunk. Even the priest did not recognize the passionate and desperate prayer. (1 Samuel 1:12-14)

Last week I was going through the same situation. I had no other choice except to look to God for an answer.

When a prayer is made passionately and desperately we can see the answer immediately. It doesn’t matter what kind of mountains you face. You just have to talk to God about them. By faith without doubt we can move them. When options run out, our faith will grow. Faith rises to the peak when there are no alternatives, when you must look to your only source, that is God to do the impossible. Your situation is a privilege for you to experience a deeper realm of miracle working power.

Lay aside everything that could take you away from HIS presence. You may have to deal some issues you have not wanted to confront. Do it anyway. You can’t afford any barriers to your prayers.  Remove the spirit of heaviness from your shoulder and start praising Him with all your heart. Let His presence and His words calm you down. Let’s present ourselves as a living sacrifice offered on the altar in a passionate and desperate prayer.

Let’s pray like Nehemiah prayed. Neh 1:4 “…when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.

Have you ever prayed like this? What was the result of your prayers?

    Woos so blessed by this post akka. Sometimes we run to everyone else first out of desperation & only in the end run to God, instead of running to Him first.
    Important lesson for us to learn.
