justifying to whom?

Mel Trotter, the evangelist, was conducting a prayer meeting, and everybody had prayed except one man. He said he couldn't pray. "Get down on your knees and confess your sins," Mel ordered. "I can't think of any," the man replied. "Get down on your knees and guess at it, "Mel answered. Later, the evangelist said, "He guessed it the very first time." We know what is wrong, but we like to justify ourselves.

which makes me wonder why i want to explain to the Lord why i did something that i shouldn't have? ... silly me, eh! He knows my heart and all my intentions, doesn't He ... and the best part is, that He loves me anyway!
