I still haven't been baptized into any church and was wondering if I could still pray, would God hear me?

Yes.  That is something I was told in answer to a very similar question.

Absolutely!  Anyone can pray to Christ.  Christ is not just the Way, but the Door who will open you up into the Way.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

The Father and the Savior unceasingly think of you, bless you, and desire your company. Certainly words from you will be most welcome to them. That the arms of God are open to all is borne out throughout the scriptures.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

MrRightReverend2U, please be aware you are posting in the Oriental Orthodox forum, which is reserved for discussions of the Syriac, Ethiopian, Armenian, Coptic and Indian Orthodox churches that comprise the Oriental Orthodox communion.  I think you should probably post in Religious Topics or Orthodox-Other Christian.
