“If I regard wickedness in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” Psalm 66:18 NASB

The key to getting our prayers through to the Throne of God is confession and forsaking our sins.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 NASB

God expects us to forsake our sins, not return over and over to the same failures.

“He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.” Proverbs 28:13 NASB

“How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven,
whose sin is covered!
2 How blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity,
and in whose spirit there is no deceit!

3 When I kept silent about my sin, my body wasted away
through my groaning all day long.
4 For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me;
my vitality was drained away as with the fever heat of summer. Selah.
5 I acknowledged my sin to You,
and my iniquity I did not hide;
I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord’;
and You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah.
6 Therefore, let everyone who is godly pray to You in a time when You may be found;
surely in a flood of great waters they will not reach him.
7 You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble;
You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.” Psalm 32:1-7 NASB

The word Selah is a musical interlude and many scholars believe that this was for the hearer or reader to stop and consider what they have just heard or read.

Don’t we all want to live with the favor of God? This is the place where we receive His blessings.

“Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him.” Isaiah 30:18 NASB
