Bogus Prayer

“He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.” Proverbs 28:9
We often make much of Christians having a time for prayer, which is very important.  But, there is much more than being a Christian than reading the Bible and asking God for a bunch of stuff.  Christians are to have a relationship with God.  If I wrote my wife a note everyday asking her to do stuff for me, but ignored her thoughts and feelings about my life, I would have a bad relationship.  Sometimes that is how we treat God.  We read a few verses. We tell God what we want and then we live as if He really doesn’t care what we do.  Let’s be sure to have an everyday life that backs up our everday relationship with God and proves our everyday prayer to be sincere.
