How to Deal With the Forces Hindering the Answers to Your Prayers

"I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting" - 1Timothy 2:8

Prayer is very good and it's an effective means to communicating with God. It is also a platform to deal with the enemies of your life; it is also a platform for spiritual empowerment. When you are prayerful, you will naturally carry the power of God because at the place of prayer, you fellowship with the all powerful (Phil. 3:10). 

However, it is good to note that the beauty of praying is when you recieve answers from God. People get discouraged when they pray and there's no results. From our opening scripture, you will discover two things Apostle Paul mentioned as the enemies of answered prayers:

1. Wrath: this include malice, unforgiveness, strife, quarrelling. These things are hinderances to the prayers of our mouth and the desires of our heart. If you have unforgiven spirit, no matter how you pray, it will never cross the roof (Matt. 6:14). Learn to forgive, no matter who has wronged you because God also forgives you!

2. Doubt: it doesn't matter how you pray, if you don't have faith in your heart, you are only making noise into the air. Without faith, you cannot get anything from God (Heb. 11:6). Faith is the currency for the purchase of heavenly treasures and assets. The Bible says if you believe, "all things" are possible NOT "somethings."

Today, stretch out your faith for that thing you want God to do for you and it will be a testimony ❗


1. Father, recieve all glory for your word in Jesus Name!!!

2. O God open my eyes to the enemies of my prayers and help me to deal with them by fire!!!

3. O God, give me the grace, hunger and passion to be closer to you like never before in the mighty Name of Jesus!!!
