The Lord is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.Proverbs 15:29
If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would NOT have listened.Psalm 66:18
I realize that this topic may upset some, who would believe that God answers ALL prayers.The Word of the Living God plainly tells us that, for those who are WICKED or UNBELIEVERS, those who embrace SIN in their hearts, God will NOT HEAR nor ANSWER their prayers.
The ONLY prayer that God acknowledges from the wicked or the UNBELIEVER, is the prayer of REPENTANCE. And this holds true for the BELIEVER, who, like, King David said, “IF I had cherished SIN in my heart, the Lord would NOT have LISTENED.After the PRAYER of REPENTANCE, God’s ear is turned to His Child and their petitions.But you MUST FIRST REPENT, of your sins and TURN AWAY FROM them, in order to have God’s DIVINE INTERVENTION.
The reason being, is that God is HOLY and RIGHTEOUS.He is NOT Santa Clause, who is waiting to give you whatever you ask or desire.He is the HOLY, RIGHTEOUS God, the CREATOR of ALL things.And He will not give you an audience with Him, until you have been washed in the BLOOD of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.And ALL your sins are washed away, and your sins, though they were once as SCARLET are gone and your HEART is white as snow.You have been REDEEMED and have been made RIGHTEOUS.
In order for this to happen, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sins, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART.Then you should CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS.You MUST BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God.Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and when you go to pray, FIRST, ask for FORGIVENESS of your sins, and have the ASSURANCE that God will HEAR your requests, and His will be done in your life.And be able to ESCAPE Hell, with ALL its HORRORS, and to gain Heaven, with ALL its BLESSINGS.Do this NOW, while you still can.He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
