JESUS IS OUR EXAMPLE ON HOW TO PRAY AND BE HEARD.
“JESUS, who in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and He was heard because of His godly fear (reverence).” Hebrews 5:7
Are your prayers being answered? Are you praying with godly fear like Jesus, with vehement cries and tears like Jesus.
“If My people, who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Notice it is only IF we do theses things, and it is only CHRISTIANS – MY PEOPLE who can pray. It is when we HUMBLE ourselves and TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS & SEEK HIS FACE only then He will hear from heaven and answer our prayers.
We cannot pray righteous prayers if we are committing unrighteous acts.
The process of restoration:
CONVICTION of sin by the Holy Spirit
CONFESSION of sin by us.
FORGIVENESS by God, through Christ’s blood by FAITH.
REPENTANCE is a conscious decision to turn around and sin no more.
RESTORATION of our relationship with God.
In order to be restored we need to move from CONFESSION to REPENTANCE. CONFESSION is not REPENTANCE.
