Key #5: Confession

LOCKED OUT!

ONE CONDITION OF PRAYER IS CONFESSION – & CHANGE.

1- IT IS A PREREQUISITE FOR ANSWERED PRAYER.

WE CANNOT BEGIN EXPECTING UNTIL WE FINISH CONFESSING.

GOD WANTS US TO KNOW OUR INIQUITY.

GOD WANTS US TO KNOW OUR IRONY.

ISRAEL ASKED QUESTIONS.

GOD ASKS HIS QUESTIONS.

NEHEMIAH 1:6-7 / DANIEL 9:5-15 / ISAIAH 6:5

2- IT IS A PROVISION FOR ANSWERED PRAYER.

AFTER CONFESSION, WE STAND BEFORE A WILLING, GIVING GOD.

THERE’S ONLY ONE WAY TO RID YOURSELF OF SIN: CONFESSION.

NOT ASSUMING YOU HAVE NO SIN – 16:12 / I JOHN 1:8-9

NOT ASSUMING SIN HAS NO CONSEQUENCES – 48:1 / ROMANS 6:23

BUT ACKNOWLEDGING SIN AND CONFESSING – PROVERBS 28:13-1
