Today, we will continue the discourse on the conditions for getting prayer answered. If you have any unconfessed sin in your life, your prayer will never be answered. Our Fire Scripture says, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). Here John is emphasising sin, not just as a matter of God-defying actions but as a basic principle or trait in human nature. This could be as a reason of those who claim that sin does not exist as a principle or power in human nature, or those who say that their evil actions are not really sin. This erroneous and deceptive belief is still with us today.
Dearly beloved, to have your prayers answered, you must own up to your sin and then go further by confessing it to God. Therefore, we deceive ourselves if we say that we have no sin. The Psalmist said, “If we regard iniquity in our hearts, the Lord will not hear us.” So our lives must be free from the thoughts of sin; we must not allow sin to dwell in our hearts and hinder answers to our prayers.
Those who take pleasure in things that go against the commands and standards of God’s word should not expect Him to answer their prayers. God wants us to separate ourselves from sin and all forms of ungodly behaviour. Only then can we experience the benefits of His special favour and power in our lives. Sin makes us to become persona-non-grata in the presence of God and that alone makes our prayer an abomination to God. Have you been struggling to have answers to your prayers? You need to check yourself, live a life free of sin and God will visit you. Also, if there is sin in your life, confess it and turn away from it.
