I am going to confession on Saturday and I have some serious sins that I need to confess. In the meantime, I have been praying the Act of Contrition and the Rosary on a daily basis. My question is, in your opinion, are my prayers useless at this time until I go to confession? Does God still listen to me eventhough I had committed some mortal sins (like lying, jealousy, anger, and missing Sunday mass on a few occasions) in the past? I have been worrying about this and I can’t seem to wait for saturday to come.
The last time I went to confession was last April. I know God is merciful and is very loving and forgiving but I just need to know if He still listens to my prayers eventhough I have not gone to confession yet. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
