Sinful in prayer?

Prayer

Yeah I know, praying is supposed to be about repentance, praising God and asking for His help and strength.  I noticed the other day I was praying and during that prayer I was praying for something but in that request I was being sinful.  How sad that I am even sinful in prayer?!? 

When praying for my husband and sometimes with others I find that I do thank God for them but in my next breath I am asking for help or change for that person, then I am kind of spouting off what I think needs changing. How judgmental is that!?!  And we all know what God thinks about that. 

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. ~Luke 6:37


Man I sure did some repenting right then and there.  I am still so dumb founded at how sinful I can be in the presence of God.  I mean, I know I am human and it does happen daily, but in the time when it is supposed to be our personal closet time together.  What a slap in the face that had to be to Him!

I am praying that God will show me how I can change this about myself.  I only want to make Him happy and not be so judgmental towards others. 

 

Here’s a post on Jesus Calling that talks about this!
