Do not pray against what the word of God says.

The word of God are words from God, whether directly spoken by God or through a chosen person. King David tells us that "every word of God proves true" - Proverbs 30:5

How can someone pray against what the word of God says?
Image result for warning signsMany people, including myself at one point, ask God to take away their free will and or they ask God to be in control of their free will. The bible clearly shows us that God has given mankind free will to choose between good and evil. God is not going to be in control of your will, while making other believers choose between good and evil. Essentially, you want God to take over your free will so that you will not have to be responsible for your own decisions.
Which means that either you don't trust God, or you don't trust that God can help you overcome yourself and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.  If you ask God, to do something that goes against his word, it will not be done by the God. However, it maybe done by the devil. Personally, I've had this happen to me. To make a long story short, God showed me how my prayer of asking the Holy Spirit to take over my free will was an error in thinking and sin. FYI I had received that idea from a pastor who out of ignorance didn't know what that type of prayer would open up for those who actually believe what they pray. Of course, I did a google search to figure out what was going on with me. Literally, two months after this happened, without finding any other believer who had experienced this I was watching the video below, by Charles Capps and he mentioned exactly what I had experienced (watch the first 6 minutes of the video below).

Where in the bible does it talk about free will?

Joshua 24:15 And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.”
