Time for prayer, is time to see ourselves as God sees us. Today, we no longer see ourselves as God sees us. We are no longer conscious of our sin and that is why we dare Jesus Christ’s purity and holiness and come to His presence only to ask for His blessings. We must believe that God knows us, even as we come with our petitions, requests and complaints. In whichever way you come to His presence, you must believe that God knows who you were, who you are and who you shall be. He knows where you are coming from, where you are and where you intend to go.
In Luke 5:8, when Peter saw Jesus, he acknowledged his position as a sinner in need of redemption that was why he cried out, saying, “…‘Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man’ ”. The evidence of our genuine repentance is to demonstrate our loyalty by doing those things God asks us to do and refraining from every act that displeases Him. Remember, no one is too good or too bad to qualify for salvation.
Isaiah 59:1-2 says, “Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.”
