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 hears us, responds to us and give us whatever we asked 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 whatever it is that is running on everyone’s heart and mind. Relationship with the Lord knows no religion. As I quote, it is not about the religion you belong to, it is your relationship with God. 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 God is into your life. It is hard to fathom or even explain the depth of the love of God for everyone, 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 have no capabilities in changing the hearts of people, but God can use us to so he can display his power of a life-changing walk on earth, 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 imposible kay 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. You just got to believe and have faith in Christ.
