Answered Prayer *1 Sam. 14:34

1 Samuel 14:34
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Samuel+14%3A34&version=NKJV;NIV
~~~
When God does not answer prayer – why? Is there a sin? Is there a sin in the way of your hearing? Go before the Lord and ask Him. Sometimes, we are totally unaware of our wrong, foolish, or sinful words or actions.
~~~
As with King Saul; his foolish words and actions caused another to sin unknowingly. Then he himself sinned before the Lord by not following through with his vow to God. One foolish word/action led to another, and then another, and then another.
~~~
Lord, God of Israel, may we not be like Saul in his foolish decisions and choices, which lead him to say and do harmful things to those around him; who will reap repercussions from his words and deeds. Help us to make wise choices and good decisions for the good of those around us and for the glory of Your kingdom. Thank you Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen
