Proverbs 28:9 NKJV
One who turns away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination.
Proverbs 15:8 NKJV
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, But the prayer of the upright is His delight.

Isn't it great to know that God considers our prayers to be a delight to Him? He sees the prayers and offerings of the wicked as disgusting. What's the difference? It's not in how good we behave because none of us have achieved perfection in our behavior. God is looking at our hearts. There are those whose hearts are toward God to please Him and they do those things that please The Lord, walking in line with his instructions. If they fail at any point they repent because their desire is to do what is right. The wicked delight in displays of good works to impress others but their lifestyle goes against God's commandments and they have no concern about pleasing God. Their desire is to please themselves and those they want favor with. So those of us who love God and are endeavoring to please Him should celebrate the fact that He delights in our prayers. We should approach Him with an awareness of that fact. Praise the Lord!
