Make me less critical and more compassionate

‘Thank you for being such a kind and patient God. May your non-stop kindness lead me repent of my sin more quickly and more deeply. When I leak passive-aggressive anger, it’s no more pleasing to you than those who are more direct and loud in expressing their frustrations and disappointments. My self-righteous arrogance is just as offensive to you as the cynicism of the most secular journalist. My work-a-holism and busyness are just as much of a drug as the alcohol and pornography of others. My heterosexual lust is just as broken as who struggle with homosexual temptations and entanglements. Father, these are just a few things that come to mind. I know there’s more.’

Taken from Everyday Prayers by Scotty Smith. Read the whole prayer here.
