A Reason God Ignores Prayer

You cover the Lord’s altar with tears, weeping and groaning because he pays no attention to your offerings . . . You cry out, “Why doesn’t the Lord accept my worship?”

I’ll tell you why! Because the Lord witnessed the vows you and your wife made when you were young. But you have been unfaithful to her (Malachi 2:13-14 bold mine).”

If you want God to hear your prayers, keep your marriage vows.

Don’t Bear the Burden of Sin

This is what the Lord says — “You refuse to ask for my help. . . . Instead, you have burdened me with your sins . . . I alone will blot out your sins for my own sake. Let us review the situation together and you can present your case ( from Isaiah 43: 1-26 NLT).”

You don’t need to bear the burden of your sin. Jesus died and rose to set you free.

Do you Believe?

They heard Jesus and were amazed by His wisdom and power. But they did not believe (from Mark 6:2-6).

Being amazed is never enough. Do you believe Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God? By believing in him you will have life by the power of his name (John 20:31).
