Ever get tired of praying for something that doesn’t seem to change? Ever get furious at injustice and corruption? How about sickness and suffering? What drives you to pray?
At Nelson Mandela’s 46664 charity concert in Cape Town in 2003, Bono, The Edge, Dave Stewart, and Beyonce sang:
‘Hold on, hold on / Let’s not get tired / So kick at the darkness / Make the lights brighter’
Both the Psalms and the New Testament call us to persevere in prayer against things that are unjust. Don’t give up, keep praying, get angry, kick at the darkness.
Want to hear someone getting seriously angry in prayer? Read Psalm 58 in The Message here: http://bit.ly/1nQOPbS
