Do you want God to answer your prayers? Of course you do.
There is one thing that we sometimes do that prevents us from seeing those answers. If we refuse to listen to what God says in His word and by His Spirit, how can we expect Him to delight in what we say to Him?
God cares more about our obedience than our religious acts. Now if you obey Him, He will not always answer your prayers in the way you want, but you stand more chance of Him being pleased to bless you, than if you are ignoring Him.
