Where Is The Answer To My Prayer !?

Have you been wondering why your prayers to God have not been answered? It could be because of unrighteousness. Read on… and continue to Hope and Enlightenment Blog post linked below.

“(5) As a Christian, are you walking in righteousness, if not, then you are praying in vain or amiss. How do I know, His word says so, read them all for yourself, Isaiah 59:1-2, 1 Peter 3:12, James 5:16, Psalms 37:25, Matthew 6:33, Psalms 11:7, that is just a few.”

– From UN-ANSWERED PRAYERS – Hope and Enlightenment

Isaiah 59:1-2    Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor His ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. (NIV)

1 Peter 3:12     For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.(NIV)

James 5:16     Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.(KJV)

Psalm 37:25     I was young and now I am old, yet I have seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.

Matthew 6:33   But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.(KJV)

Psalm 11:7        For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.(NIV)

I just felt the need to write these scripture verses, I pray that the post about Un – answered prayers will help you if you have that problem. If you don’t intend to read the post I still hope the above verses will give you clarity and anything you may be confused about.

A couple of years ago I didn’t know that my sins can separate me from God, but now I know that sinning is not of God nor of His Spirit. Therefore how can He listen to my prayers if I have not repented and keep on sinning? This is why some prayers are not answered, because of unrepented sin;both seen and unseen by our eyes. Sometimes I’ve sinned and I don’t realize it, someone points it out to me. Sin can be subtle and we may miss what we’ve done; but this is why we repent of our sins seen and unseen. Repenting brings us back to righteousness with God.

Father God thank you for your word and your truth that sets me free. Thank you for your forgiveness, your love, your peace, and your joy. Thank you for caring about me and considering me. Glory be to God the highest. God You are the great I Am. You were, You are, and You forever will be. In Jesus name, Amen.

Be blessed ♥ GOD
