I guess why I'm asking this is I tend to talk to God when I'm sad, angry, frustrated etc. As I would a friend. Just like you would call your BFF and rant about what so n so did. I tell God how hurt and angry I am, I ask for him to calm me guide me and forgive me. But sometimes I just tell him how can so n so be so mean wrong etc.
Am I offending God? Does this show disrespect? When I pray daily I will come in with thanksgiving, praise and humble myself as I pray for my salvation and the others in my life. But I am straightforward when I'm angry.
I have been studying prayers in the bible and what is most important in prayer learning and come across some things that made me thnk I may be offending God.
I was taught growing up that you should talk to jesus as a friend.
John 15:14-15*(New International Version)
14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
If you guys could share how you pray, scriptures on prayer, or any thoughts on the best way to have your prayers heard and answered.
