Prayers that reach heaven

Do you want your prayers to reach heaven? (2 Chronicles 30:27) Do you want God to hear your cries? (Psalm 40:1) Do you want your prayers to be powerful and produce results? (James 5:16) Well, we see throughout God’s Word, both Old Testament and New Testament, that God hears the prayers of those who have humbled themselves, those who have consecrated themselves to His will, those who have prepared a place for Him, those who have purified themselves, those who have waited patiently for Him, and those who have passionately pursued Him with righteous abandonment.

By God’s grace and our willingness to respond to Him by living solely for Him, we can be people whose prayers reach heaven - may it be so.
