They say to pray hardest when it is hardest to pray. So I decided to give that a try. I prayed my first angry prayer a few days ago… It wasn’t easy.
I feared that an angry prayer would anger God. Then I learned something. I had finally reached a point in my faith where I trusted Him enough to handle me at my worst.
The delusion God couldn’t, or wouldn’t, deal with an angry person was no longer an obstacle standing in the way of my relationship with Him.
I felt a spiritual closeness and comfort I never experienced before. Because in that moment, it didn’t matter what I was praying. It only mattered that I was praying.
If you’re scared of offending the Lord by going to Him when you’re overwhelmed with emotions of the negative kind- don’t be! The best thing about God is that He’s not human.
He won’t ignore you because you’re emotional.
Next time you’re angry about something, pray.
God doesn’t differentiate happy prayers from angry prayers. He does, however, differentiate those who pray from those who don’t.
