Sin messed things up big time, if ever you wanted a lesson in how not to pray, well here it is!
But the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?” He said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.” He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate.” Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent tricked me, and I ate.” (Genesis 3:9-13 NRSV)
This is man’s first conversation with God after The Fall.
God initiates the conversation and gives both the man and woman chance to repent. Instead they evade God’s questions.
You could say this is one of the best examples…
