Is there some condition which has changed recently? Has it gotten a little more wet than normal? Maybe it has either dipped into colder temperatures, or hotter than normal daytime temps. Do you feed often? as this can be a sign of too much to much nitrogen in the soil as well.

Here is an article for more information on the care of this plant:

Q. Purple passion plant leaves are drooping

i have a purple passion plant that I put on the front porch. Left windows open and temperatures dropped into 20\’s. The leaves are drooping and I am afraid I have killed it. Are there any suggestions to revive this plant?

Protect the plant so you do not expose it to freezing temperatures again.
You will need to simply wait and see how severe the damage is.
You can prune the plant back to a healthy set of leaves.
If you continue to see the plant die back, the roots may have suffered cold damage. Depending on the severity, this can kill the entire plant.
