ONE QUESTION RAISED
One Person asked me (JL is the name): Does God hear the prayers of the Roman Catholics??
I said(with conviction): If we confess our sins and humble ourselves to the Lord, God is faithful and just to forgive us. and in James 5:16 “the prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective”. If our parents hear, respond and give us whatever we ask from them, how much more is the Lord who created us, who gave us life and all things that will work for good?. The Lord knows every heart. God knows and sees one’s heart and mind. Our relationship with the Lord knows no religion. And it is not about religion, or denomination you belong to but your relationship with God that matters. Because at the end of the day, it’ll be just between you and the Lord. It is who you are in front of the Lord and who He is in your life. It is hard to fathom the depth of the love of God for everyone. No words can explain because it is unimaginably,realistically God’s unconditional love for humanity. As for salvation - “Everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved”. Those who love the Lord their God with all their heart, mind and soul and those who love their neighbor as they love themselves. Only the Lord can change our hearts which means, we cannot do it on our own. We are not capable of changing the hearts of people, but God can use us so he can display his life-changing power to other people- If we let God enter our hearts. That is why it’s up to each one of us if we let Jesus enter our lives, enter our hearts; so whether you belong to Catholic or Born Again/ Evangelical, this church or that church or those church, if we let God be in control of everything, there is nothing impossible to the Lord.. Mark 19:23, “Nothing is impossible to those who believe.” We are just a prayer away for the voice of God to be heard. Reading the Bible helps a lot. Observing how the Holy Spirit works in your life comforts you, directs and guides you. The Holy Spirit will teach you. You just got to believe and have faith in Christ.
