God Puts His Fingers In His Ears

Often when reading the Bible, I learn something unexpected.  I recently was reading Jeremiah.  I have read this book before.  But verse 7:16 jumped out at me.  I don’t ever remember reading this before.  I won’t get into the context or anything, because I believe this verse stands on its own as well as in context.  This is God, speaking to Jeremiah:

“Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.” (KJV)

INTERESTING!  There are times when God simply chooses not to hear certain prayers.  God basically tells Jeremiah, “don’t even waste your breath, dude.”  But also, he’s commanding Jeremiah to NOT PRAY.  Therefore, if Jeremiah would have prayed in that way when God told him NOT to, would he not have been sinning by doing what he was told not to do?
