“If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer.”
Psalms 66:18-19 NLT
Have you ever felt that your prayers don’t reach heaven? Before concluding that God does not hear you, it’s good to consider the following:
- Examine your heart. This involves reviewing deeply, means examining our intentions, our thoughts and behaviors.
- Confess to God all sin. Do not minimize sin; no matter what if you consider it small or large, any kind of sin will apart you from God.
- Pray. Confessions bring forgiveness of sins and thus restore the relationship with God; now you can come and talk to God.
When denied or hidden sin, you can be sure that God will not hear you, so next time you feel that he does not hear your prayer, do not hesitate to stop and check how your life goes.
