January 17: Solomon on Prayers that are Unheard

Gustav Doré’s English Bible

Solomon was the wisest man in the world. Let’s see what he has to say about making sure your prayer is heard!

He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

Proverbs 28:9

In Hebrew, the word for “law” is תּוֹרָ֑ה , but we pronounce it “Torah.”

As we saw yesterday we need to be cleansed from sin. The Psalmist shows us that the Word keeps us clean!

Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Psalm 119:9

Staying in the Word is essential to knowing God is hearing your prayers (as well as to knowing who we’re talking to!)
