Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.James 5:16 (NKJV)
There are many preachers and teachers today that tell the congregation what they want to hear so the money will flow their way. The truth is, God don’t hear a sinner’s prayer. God listens to the righteous. The righteous are those who do God’s will every day and put sin out of their lives.
Many will misquote the bible and tell you it is ok or natural to sin every day. It’s Not! However, if you should sin, God has made a way. Go to one of your fellow Christians and tell them of your sin and allow “them” to pray on your behalf.
God loves you and wants what is best for you. God will forgive you if you sin occasionally. However, sinning daily is not occasionally. That is practicing sin.
Look at it from God’s perspective. If you fill your day with sin, you won’t have time to do God’s will. You won’t have time to experience God’s love. You won’t have the time to properly care for you family, study the bible, and you lose the right to pray.
Now look at what God can do. If you study the bible, God can speak to you and lead your daily walk. If you live the bible every day, God can use you to bring others to salvation. If your heart is right with God and you pray for someone else, God will hear that prayer and act on it. God can show His love to other through you.
