"You have wrapped yourself with a cloud so that no prayer can pass through." ESV
The Word of God has spoken to us time and time again about coming to Him in prayer with unconfessed sin in our hearts. We are much like teenagers who disregard their parents instructions and come to their parents wanting money to go to the mall. When the parents refuse to give them the money, the teens get insulted and angry. The parents did not refuse out of selfishness or lack of love. The teens created a situation where the parents kindness was blocked because the teens refused to obey. This is how the Lord deals with us. We are to examine ourselves and confess any sin. Then, we have removed the barrier that hinders our prayers.
Lord, examine our hearts and reveal any sin that hides there. Convict us so that we will confess and repent. Then we will know our prayers are not stopped from reaching You. In Your name we pray, Amen.
