Praying Pride

Until we are praying about the things that interest God, we will be praying prayers of pride.” John Wesley

Instead of asking for selfish things, demanding that God proves His love in petty ways, or are concerned about our emotional  wellbeing, humility prays, “God, be merciful to me, a sinner.” 

The painting, “Help Me!” was painted in acrylics by Jewel Miller.
