Negative words, distrusting God, misconduct
These days God is talking to us about sins. On of the things which can hinder our prayers from being heard by God is sin as Bible says in Isaiah 59 verses 1 and 2 that the hand of the Lord is not short that he cannot save nor He is deaf that he cannot hear but its our unrighteousness and sins that turns his face in such a way that He cannot hear.

The Bible is not a mere book (or collection of spiritual books) but its a living word – the Word of God, its own best teacher. The Bible however is not arranged like an encyclopedia. You cannot go to chapter 1 and read everything about God and go to chapter 2 to read everything about Jesus, etc. Remember when reading the Bible the verses and chapter breaks are placed in the scriptures by man.
