Come and hear, all who fear God, and I will tell of what He has done for my soul. 17 I cried to Him with my mouth, and He was extolled with my tongue. 18 If I regard wickedness in my heart, the Lord will not hear; 19 But certainly God has heard; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. 20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor His lovingkindness from me. Psalm 66:16-20 (NAS)

Behold, the LORD'S hand is not so short that it cannot save; neither is His ear so dull that it cannot hear. 2 But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He does not hear. 3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken falsehood, your tongue mutters wickedness. Isaiah 59:1-3 (NAS)

And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brothers, all the offspring of Ephraim. 16 "As for you, do not pray for this people, and do not lift up cry or prayer for them, and do not intercede with Me; for I do not hear you. Jeremiah 7:15-16 (NAS)

"And they made their hearts like flint so that they could not hear the law and the words which the LORD of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets; therefore great wrath came from the LORD of hosts. 13 "And it came about that just as He called and they would not listen, so they called and I would not listen," says the LORD of hosts; Zechariah 7:12-13 (NAS)

"So when you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide My eyes from you, yes, even though you multiply prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are covered with blood. 16 "Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your deeds from My sight. Cease to do evil, 17 Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless; defend the orphan, plead for the widow. 18 "Come now, and let us reason together," says the LORD, "Though your sins are as scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they will be like wool. 19 "If you consent and obey, you will eat the best of the land; 20 "But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword." Truly, the mouth of the LORD has spoken. Isaiah 1:15-20 (NAS)

A Sinner Who Turns Back To God

In Isaiah 1:15-20 above, God said He would not listen to their prayers, because their hands were coved with blood.  But, if they washed themselves, made themselves clean, removed the evil of their deeds from His sights and ceased to do evil, etc. (see vs. 16-18 above)...if they consented and obeyed, God would allow them to eat the best of the land.  Otherwise they would be destroyed by the sword.
