Unconfessed Sin is a Barrier

Unconfessed sin is a barrier between us and God. Confession should be specific and heartfelt. “True confession is always of a specific character, and acknowledges particular sins. They may be of such a nature as to be brought before God only; they may be wrongs that should be confessed to individuals who have suffered injury through them; or they may be of a public character, and should then be publicly confessed. But all confession should be definite and to the point, acknowledging the very sins of which you are guilty.” Recognition of our sin, repentance, confession, and requesting forgiveness, are sometimes not all that is needed. We can ask God to forgive us, but we must do so with a plan of restitution if it is needed. If we have stolen, God requires us to pay back with interest. If we have taken part in character assassination, we must do all we can to undo the wrong committed and attempt to restore the person to right relationship with others. Many prayers remain unanswered because of an unwillingness to bring resolution to past sins that God brings to our mind. Praying in the YES of God Pg 78
