Prayer for God to stop placing unreasonable standards on me

    For some strange reason, God is requiring that I be absolutely perfect. Whenever I make a mistake, God allows horrible things to happen to me. Then God blames me for it and tells me it was my fault these horrible things happened to me, that he wouldn't intervene to prevent it from happening because he didn't like that I failed to live up to his unreasonable standards. I would like everyone to please pray and ask God to quit placing unreasonable standards on me that I cannot possibly live up to. Also pray that God will prevent these horrible things from happening to me despite my imperfections.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    To be perfect in context meant be spiritually mature. And if you're talking about the law in other words a standard where one doesn't fail the law was given merely to show you YOU need Christ. It was to demonstrate you are a sinner in need of a Savior.

    You have a somewhat distorted view of God. Have you considered His mercy, grace and love? Not everything that happens is from God's hand. The devil is like a roaring lion. He is the enemy of our souls. God requires nothing at all from you. If you could be perfect, Jesus died for nothing. God expects you to sin and fail. He has made provision through the death of Jesus. All you need do is confess your sin. God forgives and then He forgets. Blaming God for your problems is futile and foolish.

    It is NOT God that is torturing you. It is the other fellow. You should repent, ask God to forgive you and then receive that forgiveness by faith. Let Lord Jesus rule your life, receive His righteousness.

    It sounds more that OP is torturing himself. Stop demanding perfection. God bless.

    God asked people to be sober. Those who could not comply were at risk of terrible accidents, disease and unemployment to name a few of the tragedies they might be heading for.

    Sometimes, people mistake natural consequences for God's judgment.

    Lord we pray for Lord Vega that you'd help him through all this. That he'd come to know how much you love him and want to bless him. That he'd find answers in your word to all that is going on and not from other places. Bring him to a wider place of knowing you better. In Jesus name, Amen.

    Dear Heavenly Father, @Lord Vega is having some questions about You putting some unreason standards on him. I don't know what let him think about it. May You give him wisdom to resolve these doubts. Because You are holy, You want Your children to be holy too. You only discipline Your children. God, Please let @Lord Vega stand firm with You and grow strong out of these tests on earth. I pray in Jesus name, Amen!

    Heavenly Father, I pray that You will bring the salvation of Your Son Jesus who is lovable, kind, humble, a helper, and a healer and a forgiver of Sins, nor does He condemn but promises that if you repent He will wipe your sin off the face of the map. Show him what he believes is false, that You Father, because of Your love for us, sent Your Son to forgive us and bring Salvation, not cause harm, In Jesus Name, Amen
