Does God sometimes not listen to our prayers?

 Therefore this is what the Lord says: ‘I will bring on them a disaster they cannot escape. Although they cry out to me, I will not listen to them.  Jeremiah 11:11
“Do not pray for this people or offer any plea or petition for them, because I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their distress. Jeremiah 11:14
            There’s a point in a person or nation’s life called “the point of no return.”  It means God’s mind is made up, He’s given people enough time to repent, but now it’s time to pay. 
            At that point, prayer would do no good.  Once the consequences of someone’s actions become real, people always repent and want mercy.  God wants them to repent before the consequences hit.
            Look at criminals.  They commit crimes left and right with no regret.  Then, they get caught and all of a sudden they feel sorry because they know jail time awaits.   The police don’t listen to their begging and pleading.  It doesn’t do any good.
            Our prayers are the same way once God has decided the punishment is coming.  Before that time, He’s all ears.  Talk to Him before it’s too late.
