A Prayer I Need to Pray

My friend Marty Everding recently blogged on Hating God in Despising Justice. At the end, he wrote this prayer:

Father help us today to believe more deeply that sin is always far more vertical in its aim than horizontal, and that it is far more evil than we can imagine. In light of this reality, increase our faith and let us understand Your wrath more as we see it poured out on Christ at the cross to save those who believe. Help us understand Your hatred for sin, what it cost You to save us from it, and the eternal  cost of sin in hell for all who have spurned your holiness. We too cry out, “I believe! Help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24).
