Re: Does God answer silent prayers?
Confession of faith in Christ actually has less to do with some sinner's prayer and more to do with achnowledgement of Jesus' lordship publicly. By their fruits you will know them. Hopefully he didn't just get fire insurance but got a hold of the actual Gospel along with things like laying down one's life and living under new management. But my husband isn't rather verbal outwardly about his faith much either, however I have certanly seen the fruit of it over the past 9 years. We have to remember that God saves people for Himself and not for us. We're just secondary beneficiaries.
Even so, come Lord Jesus!
