Would You Pray This?

Psalms 7:8 ESV
(8) The LORD judges the peoples; judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me.

On a surface level, I don't think I would dare pray this. I know my own sinful heart too well. I certainly would not want to be judged on that.

However, the good news is that I am judged by the righteousness of Christ. That of course is not a "get out of hell free" card, but it is great news that I can pray this with confidence. God will judge me based on the righteousness imputed upon me. At least that's my understanding of the atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross.
