2/15/15-Overcoming Hindrances to Prayer

Hindrances to effective prayer…….
•   BUSYNESS.
   > If you do not take time to pray, God might READJUST your schedule until you have plenty of time to pray.

•   DISOBEDIENCE.
   > There is a DIRECT connection between “ask and receive” and “obey His commands and doing what pleases Him.”
   > Disobedience and obedience is a CHOICE.

•   LAZINESS.
   > Failure to pray is often because we are UNDISCIPLINED.
   > To waste time is to waste LIFE.
   > SINCERE, disciplined prayers move the heart and hand of God.

•   UNFORGIVENESS.
   > When we harbor BITTERNESS and unforgiveness, the Lord turns a deaf ear to our prayers.

•   UNCONFESSED sin.
   > STIFLES the effectiveness of our prayers.
   > The Holy Spirit will gently and specifically reveal if ANY unconfessed sin in your life.
   > Confess, repent, ask God to forgive, and then claim His forgiveness by FAITH.

•   LACK OF FAITH.
   > God must be the one & only OBJECT of faith when we pray

Challenge……

•   Take RADICAL measures to rid yourself of any hindrance to a vibrant prayer life and walk with the Lord---IMMEDIATELY.
