It's more than OK to express your doubts to God in the act of praying. You should do this. Otherwise the conversation is inauthentic and unreal.
Philip Yancey writes:
"Prayer allows a place for me to bring my doubts and complaints — in sum, my ignorance — and subject them to the blinding light of a reality I cannot comprehend but can haltingly learn to trust. Prayer is personal, and my doubts take on a different cast as I get to know the Person to whom I bring them."
- Yancey, Philip. Prayer, Kindle Locations 729-731)
God doesn't freak out when we doubt. But it is weird to have a doubt and pray as if the thing is nonexistent.
In prayer we can and ought to be real with God. God is all-knowing; we are not. God loves us, so any fear we have of God is unfounded.
God gives me permission to bring my entire being to him, including my vast ignorance.
