Here’s a spiritual practice I’ve been doing for a while now:
* Ask a question of God in prayer
* Look for the answer in the providential circumstances of your life.
I’ve had many questions answered in this way. Awesome and sometimes surprising. I like to pray the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet, but an extemporaneous prayer also works fine for this purpose.
A person that has unconfessed mortal sins, is praying to God even worth it? Would God even listen or answer prayers from a unrepentant sinner?
A person unrepentant from actual mortal sin receives prevenient grace, and also can cooperate with actual grace, partially. Full cooperation with actual grace would take the form of explicit or implicit perfect contrition, returning the person to grace.
Thank you for sharing Ron.
From Pope Francis’ new Apostolic Exhortation:
“He [God] does not get upset if you share your questions with him. He is concerned when you don’t talk to him, when you are not open to dialogue with him.” – (Christus Vivit).
