December 2: The qualities of the man (and woman) who receives answers to prayer

And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

Luke 1:6

Notice that Zacharias and Elizabeth were seen by God just as Noah was.

And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Exodus 7:1

What was Noah known for?

These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Genesis 6:9

Noah walked with God. Today we call that “prayer.”

Zacharias, Elizabeth, and Noah realized the truth that Isaiah proclaimed:

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Isaiah 59:2
