How should we come before God when we pray? Will He accept our prayers? Listen to Jesus again.
He said, "Two men went into the temple to pray. One was a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed, saying, 'God, I thank You that I am not greedy, dishonest, and unfaithful in marriage like other people. I am really glad that I am not like that tax collector over there. I go without eating for two days a week, and I give You one tenth of all I earn.' The tax collector stood at a distance and did not think he was good enough even to look up towards heaven. He was so sorry for what he had done that he pounded his chest and prayed, 'God, have pity on me! I am such a sinner.'" Then Jesus said to His followers, "It was the tax collector and not the Pharisee who was pleasing to God. If you put yourself above others, you will be put down. But if you humble yourself, you will be honoured." God resists people who are proud. If we really want God to accept our prayers, then we must humble ourselves. Only then can we please God.
