God Hears Prayers

Daily "Words of Wisdom" from Apply Wisdom.com

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

God forgives sin and answers prayers.

There are books, blogs, magazines and “so called” famous money making ministers and preachers telling us reasons why God doesn’t listen to our prayers and why God doesn’t answer our prayers. To make things even worse, they have the audacity to mention 5, 7 or 10 reasons why. This is so sickening because our loving heavenly Father encourages us to turn to Him, confess our sins, and receive His forgiveness and mercy. We can see this truth in multiple scriptures and through multiple examples of our fellow sinners in the bible.

Who are they to say: “Hey you imperfect human, guess what? There are 5 reasons why God doesn’t listen to your prayers.”

Who are they to make such a shameful statement? How dare they say what God listens to and or answers?

Yahweh knows that we are imperfect humans, sinful, and that we sin in innumerable times and ways.

Don’t listen to declarations from self-righteous people who think they know everything, to include what is in God’s mind.  This false line of reasoning can make us feel inferior, possibly even dragging us away from God, and cause us to be too ashamed to pray for forgiveness for the mistakes that we make or for repeated sins.

God is the listener of prayers. Period.

We need to confess, pray with honesty from the heart, and work on ourselves!
