S - Scripture:  PSALM 66: 16-20 (NLT)   
Come and listen all you who fear God and I will tell you what he did for me.
For I cried out to Him for help, praising Him as I spoke.
If I had not confessed the sin in my heart the Lord would not have listened .
BUT GOD did listen, He paid attention to my prayer, praise God who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw
His unfailing love from me.

O – Observation
True  Confession leads to God listening ???
What I do understand is that if we are honest with ourselves we need to confess our sin and dependence on Him.
A prayer that understands that we are human and we don’t have it altogether. 
There are many prayers in my life that I need God to answer and God to come through for me .
Jesus prayed according to His father's will and its His will that I desire to unfold in my life.

A – Application  
The bottom line here is that we need help in this area, we need to confess our shortcomings to Him on a daily basis .
I need to recognise the importance of daily prayer and allow God to examine my heart and motives, submitting my
life to him by being real and putting it all on the altar, the good the bad and the ugly.

P – Prayer
Lord let me first come into Your presence through the precious blood of Jesus!!!  I thank you for your unfailing love
and your saving grace that you show to me everyday. I come to You the God who listens and answers prayers according to Your good and perfect will for my life.
