John 9: 31
"We all know that God does not listen to sinners but he listens to anyone who worships and obeys Him"
Most of our prayers could use a tune up, I know this to be true of my life.
>>>For some, there is the lack of consistency. Its like, in prayer - people in general are on a dessert or an oasis. Long , arid, dry spells that you usually interrupted by grief. Usually this grief causes us to plunge into the waters of communication with God.
>>> Others need sincerity of prayers... these people usually have hollow, memorized, ridgid prayers...though there are daily prayers, they are dull.
>>> Some people lack honesty is their prayer lives.
We as humans wonder if prayer will make a difference. Why would God in heaven talk to us?
Some wonder if God knows all, then who are we to tell Him anything?
.....so..... that can cause us to have awkward prayers and our attempts seem feeble.
BUT - the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not the one who says the prayer... meaning GOD. So, at the end of the day, our prayer do make a difference.
