opposed to laying down.

c)  3 R’s.  (Realize, Remember, and Report.)  Realize God has answered

your prayer; Remember His faithfulness when things appear

crazy; Report His answers to the rest of the Body.

5)  Obstacles to Prayer


There are many obstacles to effective prayer.  If we are aware of these, it can enhance and protect our prayer life.


a)  Unrepentant Sin can short circuit God’s availability in prayer.  If we

confess our sin (1 John 1:9) God will cleanse us and our prayers

can be heard and answered (Is. 59:2).

b)  A Major obstacle:  Lack of Planning.  To not have a specific time and

place to pray leaves us open to crowding prayer out of our busy

life and schedule.  It is wise to allocate a time and a place to pray.

c)  The primary obstacle of prayer is the spiritual battle.  It does exist.

This manifests itself in many forms.  Satan tries to distract us,

detain us, or detour us.  This manifests itself through an emotional

cloud hanging over head or a temptation to worry or work rather

than pray (Eph. 6:10-19).
