Stronger Words Still

If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable. Proverbs 28:9

Have you ever known you were disobedient and tried to pray? Exactly. The prayers go nowhere. In fact, God said they were detestable. Those are some strong words. His concern is that we are more in line with his instruction than going through the motions of praying.

1 Samuel 15:22 But Samuel replied: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice. . .”

Stronger words still.
