After You Leave the Prayer Room:
Honesty with God and the encounters you have with people are two very different contexts. It is important to have a filter that will allow you to develop the skills set of being a pleasant person. A person that can connect with someone else rather than just pursuing the emotional release of expression without the consideration of another person. In prayer we bare the full range . . .
of our emotions without fear of judgement. In our refining through prayer to God we in context should be aware of the necessity to develop a filter which would prohibit us from becoming that negative person expressing critically our opinions and judgments, though we think it is in the name of what is good. An awareness of the heart we share with God as well as the heart we share with others, two very valuable lessons indeed.
