Boldness in Prayer
The Trekkie in me often hears Captain Kirk’s voice whispering that it’s time “to boldly go where no man has gone before!” BTW, it was Picard who reminded Kirk that he had talented women on the USS Enterprise and that they were going where no ONE had gone before. Too often, we creep into prayer as if we’re a mouse looking at a bit of cheese and wondering if it’s all a trap designed to snap short our lives. But we’re invited to march boldly into God’s presence to let him know exactly what we’re thinking – because he knows already. What might happen if we were just that bold?
