“God just hit the delete button on that prayer.”

November 15, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Someone very funny in my life said the statement above about an unbiblical, selfish prayer request so I thought I’d share it with you.

“I want a new Lambourghini now, Lord.”

“God just hit the delete button on that prayer.”

We laugh at such outrageous prayers but how often do we pray like this on a smaller level? I’d say it’s more than we realize.

Jesus said, “Not my will, but Yours be done.” He was submissive to the Father’s will; therefore, we must be, also.

-Mark (Learning to pray like Jesus, but having a long way to go)

    Mark,
    You are so right Mark. Scripture says that first and greatest commandment is to love the Lord thy God….. This commandment, I interpret to mean that I am to ask first and most importantly, through prayer, “what I can do to serve you, Lord?” Continuing, scripture also says to seek first his kingdom and his righteousnes and these things will be added to you. It is clear how things are to work, but I admit that I don’t always get it right.
