Forgive me if this is in the wrong place.
What exactly is the sin of pride? Am I guilty if I prayed for something that may have been outside of God’s will?
I recently told God I would do something if he wanted me too, if he opened the door to it. I didn’t want to do it, had many negative feelings toward it. I prayed that God would not require me to follow through. He granted my prayer, I wasn’t asked to do it. Now I feel like maybe I was wrong (weak and afraid) to ask to be released. Was it a sin to pray this way?
Its been suggested I have scruples and I do intend to speak to a priest but I am interested in the opinions here.
Is it pride to want to protect myself from harm? I have no family to rely on and must take care of myself. I’m in shaky circumstances right now and am focused on finding a job. A person I no longer trust says this is selfish and prideful. Thank you all for your thoughts
