Raw Before God (Prayer)

Prayer is basic language… honest, true, and personal. It is the means by which we get everything in our lives out in the open before God.

Only as we develop raw honesty and detailed thoroughness in our praying do we become whole, truly human in Jesus Christ, who also prayed the Psalms. (Eugene Peterson)

Just start writing a letter to God in raw honesty. Need a starter? Read the book of Psalms! (Try using The Message for a contemporary prompt.) No nice and tidiness there, all …raw. That’s what God desires, us in our 100% honesty.
