Mortal Sin and Prayers?

Does God hear our prayers if we are in a state of mortal sin?


I think so. If you make a good act of contrition (be truly sorrowful for what you’ve done b/c you’ve offended God–and Jesus who died for you), repent, and promise to get to Confession at the first opportunity, I think He will restore you to at least a partial state of Grace.

God always hears our prayers.


Jesus said that He knows the number of hairs on our head, so he would certainly know what we are saying to him at all times.
