In my previous blog, I talked about “Why is it necessary to spend time with God, just listening?”
We are now going to look at the times when you feel as if God’s communication line is down.
(1 John 1:9)
“If we confess our sins,
He is faithful and just
To forgive us our sins
And to cleanse us from all unrighteousness,”
God tells us that we must first cleanse ourselves from sin to make sure our communication line to God is unhindered when we pray.
In (Matt. 6:12) “ and forgive us our debts,
As we also have forgiven our debtors. “
God also teaches us that if we don’t forgive others their sins how can we ask Him to forgive our sins. God died on the cross for all of us. He wants us to invite Him into our lives. He wants us to testify about answered prayers
(Isa 62:1-2, 6-7) “Or Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness
and her salvation as a burning torch.
The nations shall see your righteousness,
and all the kings your glory
and a new name shall call you
that the mouth of the LORD will give.
On your walls, O Jerusalem,
I have set watchmen;
all the day and all the night
they shall never be silent.
You who put the LORD in remembrance,
take no rest,
and give him no rest
until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it praise in the earth.”
For you to pray
“Lord reminds me of my sins the sins that keep you from hearing my prayer especially when I pray for others. I confess all sins you remind me off. Thank you, God, for cleansing me just as you promised in “1John 1:9” for me to qualify to be an intercessor for others.” Amen
In my next blog, I’m going to talk about different types of prayers.
