Prayer based on Matthew 23:24. Themes: hypocrisy, priorities, justice

Dear Lord, please help me to see clearly and not be blinded by my own pride and self-righteousness. May I not focus on minor details and miss the bigger picture of your love and grace. Help me to avoid hypocrisy and to always strive for humility and compassion. Amen.

Verse: You blind guides, who strain out a gnat, and swallow a camel!
Matthew 23:24

This is a Command. The verse is a rebuke to the Pharisees for their hypocrisy and obsession with minor details while neglecting more important matters. The command is to avoid being like them and to focus on what truly matters.
