Hey there! Hope you are all doing well For those who do not know me, I am 16 years old and am a new believer in Christ! There is still a lot for me to learn and I'm definitely hoping to grow in my faith and become closer to God. So I have heard that there are many things that hinders our prayers from God that keeps God from listening to our prayers. And one of the main reasons for that is, unconfessed sin. And so, I definitely do have a lot of questions about that. 1. How can we know 100% FOR SURE that God is listening to our prayers? That our prayers will definitely reach heaven and that God will answer them? 2. Yes, we can ask God for forgiveness in our sins. But what if we have sins that we have not confessed to God because they were done a long time ago that we completely forgot about them? 3. Can you ask God to simply “forgive all your sins” or do you need to state specifically what it is? 4. When we accept Jesus as our Savior, all our sins are supposedly forgiven. That means past, present, and future sins. So do we still need to confess our sins all the time even though we are already forgiven because we accepted Christ? 5. And lastly, this one is a bit complicated. I knew that things such as homosexuality, lust, and psychics are sinful. But look at this: http://list25.com/25-normal-things-the-bible-forbids-but-we-still-do/1/I had no clue that eating lobster, snails, cheeseburgers, or pork (this one actually made sense though) were sinful? Or wearing ripped jeans or polyester is also sinful? So does that mean I need to just stop eating/wearing those things and confess all those things to God because I have done all things too many times? But I love eating lobster and I have lots of cute clothes in my wardrobe that are polyester material? So I guess God wants me to throw out my clothes made out of polyester? And if I keep wearing those clothes, apparently it is sinful and that my prayers will be hindered because I wear polyester? Sorry it is a lot, just that when I pray, I don't want to have any doubts that God isn't listening to me. Thanks so much!
