god save the prayers

Do not be ashamed of your past. You have a story to tell, and a God-ordained obligation to tell it. Your testimony is your proof that God is in the matter of rescuing lives, at all times.

Moses, hear what I say. I have been a slave all my life. And God has never answered my prayers until now. God saved you from the river, He saved you in all your wanderings, and even now, He saves you from the wrath of Pharaoh. God will not abandon you. So don’t you abandon us

anonymous asked:

Do you think God hears and answers the prayers of only the saved, or the unsaved too? And I don't mean the initial prayer when you give your heart to Him, bc He must always be receptive to that; I mean our everyday prayers, about needs and wants.

To answer this question, you need to see the difference between the prayers of those who are saved and the unsaved. Those who are unsaved sometimes pray only because of their greed and to satisfy their selfish desires. Those who are saved pray that the will of God will be done in their life.

When you see the wicked getting all their desires, maybe it’s not God answering their prayers, maybe it’s the enemy who wants to destroy their soul, because God will not give us something that will hinder us from becoming like His Son. Everything good comes from God and He wants His children to get what He thinks is good and not what the world thinks.

When a sinner prayed with a repentant heart and with humility, God will answer it because He is merciful and He wants us to see that He is a Father that we can trust in everything. God answers our prayers because of Jesus. When we put our trust in Him and give our life to Him, God will answer our prayers. He may give you what you prayed for because it’s His will, He may say no to your prayers because it will not be good for you, or He may say wait because His timing is so much better than yours. 

Just remember these verses:

If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.     -Psalm 66:18

We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will. -John 9:31
