The prayers of a righteous man is heard


The prayers of a righteous man is heard; but the prayer of the wicked falls on deaf ears.

A good man is received with open arms into the courts of Heaven; but an evil man cannot even find the courts of Heaven let alone enter them.

A good man lives his life according to the precepts of God; but an evil man lives his life according to his own warped sense of justice.

A good man sees the good in the lives of others and speaks often of the good that he sees; but an evil man can only see his own evil reflection when he looks upon the lives of others and speaks often of the evil he sees.

A good man speaks from the abundance of his heart of the good; but an evil man can speak only from the depravity of his heart which is evil.
