I love the idea that we can be real with God. My wife and I have been going through a rough month filled with various stresses. I was encouraging her to pray to God and be ultra real. I found myself saying, “You can even cuss to Him if you need.” Is that true? Can we cuss to God?
I firmly believe God isn’t afraid of our “naughty words.” He knows what’s in our hearts and He loves it when we express ourselves openly. I’m no expert at Hebrew vulgarity, but I’m sure David prayed some pretty cuss-filled prayers. I figure if God called him a man after His own heart…David couldn’t have been to far off.
So I’ve decided, I’m going to be gut-wrenchingly honest with God. Will you join me on this journey? Pray prayers that don’t belong in church. Pray prayers that would make the deacons’ wives blush. Pray prayers from your heart instead of prayers from your inhibitions.
God loves an honest prayer.
