Christ did away with sin so man COULD come before God. He died for us while we were still unbelievers. God hears all prays, because of the work of Christ. How else can man be saved unless Christ had already made the way.

Yet WHILE we were yet sinners Jesus saved us.
If you don't know what a sinners prayer is you were never a sinner in need of a savior.

This blind man who was healed was speaking to the Pharisees. They taught in the synagogues that the Gentiles were sinners and the Worshippers were the Jews). The Jews believed this. Therefore, he is saying to them if Jesus is of the devil how can he do these miracles because we (Jews) know that God does not hear sinners.He had no knowledge of grace or the sacrifice of Jesus on the Christ so he was not spewing revelation knowledge or doctrine for the New Testament Church.

There is no such thing as the sinners prayer. When you hear of Jesus and read of Jesus and your conscious is pricked, your heart condemned, you see yourself as a sinner, and Jesus as the way to salvation then the blood of Jesus cleanses you. When you open your mouth you are making an open confession of an inward change that has already happened so of course God hears you. Dont be fooled into thinking that sin can come before a Holy God. Without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins.

If we could be a sinner and throw up prayers to God, then Jesus sacrifice would be unnecessary and so would the animal sacrifices in the Old Testament. People are starting to preach another Gospel, the bible says let him be accursed As a sinner repents in his heart then the blood is applied and by the time he opens his mouth to confess he can be heard by God. We must intercede for all to come to Jesus.

I believe that the only prayer that God hears from an unbeliever is the prayer of that sinner as he sees himself the way that God sees him before he has confessed repented and surrendered his life, and recieved and believed Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior.

The very first prayer that God hears and answers from a sinner is when they pray the sinner's prayer. Before that "His face is against those who do evil to cut them off from the face of the earth".

Bless you Mima. In this world which commonly trys it's best to wrongfully group all people, both the godly and the ungodly, into one group, this is one of the most powerful verses in the Bible. It speaks volumes of how there is a clear distinction between the people of God and the people not of God.

God has to listen to SOME sinners. Otherwise, there could be NO Christians at ALL, since it would be impossible for anyone to become saved. Instead, we would have the following scenario over and over again:

Sinner: "Lord, have mercy on me a sinner!"
God: "LA LA LA. I'm not LISTENING! You're a sinner. Go AWAY!"

Exactly what it says. If you are going to pray, you need to confess your sins and be purified before the Lord and in your own conscience so that your prayers will be heard. Also, if you have unforgiveness (which I suppose is just sin) in your heart, you must forgive. This is crucial as the 2nd great commandment of Jesus'is to love your neighbor as yourself.

Proverbs 15:29: "The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous."

psalm 34, psalm 34, psalm 34.
Psalm 34:17: "The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18: The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart, and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit."
---Nana on 9/22/07

Jesus made the path to the Father, for all are reconciled, while they are still sinners. God will hear all sinners prayers.
Jesus did away with sin.

It means the man who spoke those words obviously believed them to be true, probably based on what he had heard or been taught by the very ones he was speaking to. However, It is an example something truly stated in scripture, yet not, in it's entirety, a statement of truth. If the Father did not hear the sinner, none of us could have ever been saved.
---joseph on 9/21/07

God does not hear the prayers of anyone who is an unforgiven sinner. If you are born-again [Saved by Jesus' Blood] you have communion with the Father, thus He hears your prayers. Although sometimes it seem as if He doesn't. True Christians are the most blessed people in the world. We truly have a future that unbelievers don't have. We have heaven to look forward to.

Psa 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

Psa 66:19 But verily God hath heard me, he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

Psa 66:20 Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

Man can figure a way to get good people into heaven - It took God to find a way to get sinners in.
---Andrea on 9/20/07

It means that if a sinner is saying, Lord please do this, or do that. God doesn't hear them. Now if a sinner is humble and says Lord forgive me and save me, that God hears. but for a sinner to pray and it be far from their heart, God doesn't take heed or listen to such things.

It means you have to read the whole section. It was a comment from a former blind man who referenced Jesus. He was saying Jesus had healed him and the only way He (Jesus) could was if God had heard from Him (Jesus) to heal him. He was saying not only that Jesus was not a sinner, but that he was of God. (Short answer.)
