“7 Do not judge others, or you yourselves will be judged. 2 As you have judged, so you will be judged, by the same rule; award shall be made you as you have made award, in the same measure. 3 How is it that thou canst see the speck of dust which is in thy brother’s eye, and art not aware of the beam which is in thy own? 4 By what right wilt thou say to thy brother, Wait, let me rid thy eye of that speck, when there is a beam all the while in thy own? 5 Thou hypocrite, take the beam out of thy own eye first, and so thou shalt have clear sight to rid thy brother’s of the speck.” Matthew 7:1-5

1.) Does praying that someone will repent of their sins count as judging?
2.) What about praying for someone to repent when I’m in a state of mortal sin myself? See verses 3-5 for this second question.
