A Prayer Lesson

Lord, help me to not be a perfectionist…did I spell that correctly? 

This well-intentioned prayer is a contradiction in itself. How serious are we about our behavioral inconsistencies, whether they’re impatience, perfectionism, a short temper, or one of many others? Do we really want to change? Are we serious in asking for divine help? Successful prayer is accompanied by serious effort.

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results. James 5:16b
