Will God answer my prayers?

Many of us carry burdens in life. Sometimes we tell God about them. We wonder, will God  answer our prayers. The prophets, Moses and Abraham often prayed to God and He spoke back to them. Once Abraham pleaded with God to rescue his nephew who was in danger. God answered and saved his nephew’s life?
So, will God answer our prayers, like he did for Abraham ? Jesus tells   a story to show us what matters to God when we pray. It is our heart . Is our heart clean ? He points out to his listeners that it is easy to think we are good people and have no faults. However the one who recognises his faults and tells God about them is the person who  God listens to. If we are hoping for  God to answer our prayer- this is the starting point. Watch this story (on video) and see what you think.

Luke 18: 9-14

Read Jesus' parable about prayer

Luke 18: 9-14 (NIV)

9 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’
13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’
14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
