We were privileged to have Tedd Tripp as a guest speaker at church recently. He preached about striving in prayer, from Paul's request to the Romans in Romans 15. It was an excellent and timely message. One point that I found particularly insightful was that generic prayers cannot be fervent. If we are to pray fervently, we must also pray specifically. More importantly, I was reminded of the necessity and urgency of prayer, the humility and love for the brothers from which true intercessory prayer springs, and the example left us by Christ of passionate prayer.
