When I first heard about it, long time ago, my mind was complaining, didn’t want to accept it, because translated in Serbian it goes something like this:

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on  sinful me.”

The part “sinful me” didn’t go with my new view of God as loving parent, parent who is not condemning or judging . I was against any kind of judgment and was fed up with guilt and people trying to put more and more guilt upon me or anyone else, condemning, looking for any reason to condemn you or me looking for any reason to condemn myself. I was protesting and refused to use it. My God loves me as I am and no one can tell me that I am a sinner.

It took me long  a time to understand what that “sinful me” means.

Well thank God, I finally understood it, because it helped me enormously and it still does  - when some prayer stick to you, when you feel it from the inside as it is giving you some kind of relief and serenity, you tend to use that prayer often. I have couple of them as you may notice by now. Of course, my favorite is “The Lords Prayer
