Being righteous literally means to be right, especially in a moral way. When out a righteous person from a Christian perspective that means a person not only does the right thing for other people, but also lives a Christian life.
In no way do I think of myself as righteous, however with God’s help I know I can be a better person, a better Christian. I believe in the power of prayer, and so I pray believing that God will answer my prayers in His way, and in His time.
Keep praying, because God still answers prayers.
