Prayers of Commitment
One of the beautiful experiences of petitioning God through prayer is that, as the psalmists knew, we can trust that we have been heard. Here is one time when we know that the longing of our hearts is known by a Lover of deep commitment and fierce intensity. Some things we long for are frivolous, some even deleterious to our health. But the longing for God and the desire to connect with others in love are the seeds of a grounded, spiritual life that has great depth and inspiration.
