A Prayer


"I do not ask God to forgive me for my sins, if I have committed something wrong I deserve to be punished, I ask God to give me the strength not to commit it again."

I have never understood the concept and it surprises me how people across so many cultures for ages have been asking 'god to forgive them', which is so wrong to ask for. Its so mean that they beg for being not punished, while they know they deserve it, only because they are afraid of it. They should realise they have wronged, if at all, and they should take the punishment gracefully, if they feel sorry for their actions they should not ask to be "not punished", they should just not do it again ever.
