How can the lost be saved if God doesn't listen to the prayers of sinners?

So as I was reading these past couple days that God does not listen to sinners. How then is it possible to be saved since we're sinner when we pray the sinner's prayer? Or when confess our sins everyday? 

John 9:31

ESV - 31 We know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does his will, God listens to him.
