I've read that if we are sinning then God doesn't hear our prayers or intervene in our lives. Since all have sinned, I don't know how God can tune us out and distance himself from us when we are wrestling with sin. Who else but God can help us overcome the sins? I can't be without sin all of the time and I need a full time God, not just one who tends to me when I'm without sin.
