Prayer for Matthew 23:28

“In the same way, on the outside you seem righteous to people, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.”

Praying through Matthew 23:28

Search me, O God, and know my heart. Try me and know my thoughts. I do not want to live my life as the hypocritical Pharisees did, appearing righteous and good on the outside, but on the inside, full of greed, self-indulgence, and wickedness. Lord, I confess any hidden sins to You today, knowing that You know them already. I pray that I would live every day in sincerity and truth, lifting up Your name for Your praise and glory. In Jesus' name, AMEN.
