August 16.2015 STRONG PRAYER LIFE GETS RID OFF THE BLOCKAGES IN PRAYER

  1. 1. PRAYER LIFE GETS RID OFF THE
  2. 2. WHILE ON THE ROAD TO SEEING ANSWERS TO LONG-STANDING PRAYERS, IT IS CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND THE TYPES OF BLOCKAGES THAT CAN THREATEN YOUR PROGRESS
  3. 3. Blockage# 1: A DEEP EMOTIONAL WOUND • Deep emotional wounds are some of the most common blockages that can keep people from responding to the Lord’s voice of love.
  4. 4. • 1 Timothy 1:19 NIV holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and so have suffered shipwreck with regard to the faith. 1Timothy 1:19-20 TAB V19. Na ingatan mo ang pananampalataya at ang mabuting budhi; na nang ito'y itakwil ng iba sa kanila ay nangabagbag tungkol sa pananampalataya: V20. Na sa mga ito'y si Himeneo at si Alejandro; na sila'y aking ibinigay kay Satanas, upang sila'y maturuang huwag mamusong.
  5. 5. Various ways to discover the particular root to a person’s problem • A.) Listen to the person’s conversation. • B.) Believe that the Lord will reveal to the person, or to others, their pain through a dream or vision. • C.) Hurt and trauma can cause us to be shipwrecked in our faith and in our prayers.
  6. 6. If you know of someone who has been shipwrecked by life’s storms, don’t give up praying for them. God is able to heal them and bring deliverance in ways beyond your imagination.
  7. 7. Blockage# 2: UNFORGIVENESS • Unforgiveness is probably the most common blockage or hindrance to answered prayer. Not only is it a blockage, but it often keeps us from the place of prayer and private devotion.
  8. 8. •Mark 11:25-26 (NKJV) v25 “And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. v26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive
  9. 9. •IF WE HOLD ON TO UNFORGIVENESS IT HAS ITS CONSEQUENCES
  10. 10. •Psalm 66:18 (NKJV) If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear.
  11. 11. • Isaiah 59:1-2 (NIV) v1Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. v2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
  12. 12. • Isaiah 59:1-2 V1. Narito, ang kamay ng Panginoon ay hindi umiksi, na di makapagligtas; ni hindi man mahina ang kaniyang pakinig, na di makarinig. V2. Kundi pinapaghiwalay ng inyong mga kasamaan kayo at ang inyong Dios, at ang inyong mga kasalanan ay siyang nagpakubli ng kaniyang mukha sa inyo, upang siya'y huwag makinig.
  13. 13. •Matthew 6:14-15 (NIV) v14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. v15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive
  14. 14. Blockage# 3: BITTER ROOTS • Roots of bitterness damage our ability to properly hear the voice of God; they also make it difficult to discern how and when He wants us to intercede for a person or situation.
  15. 15. •Hebrews 12:15 (NLT) Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.
  16. 16. •Matthew 5:43-48 (MSG) “You’re familiar with the old written law, ‘Love your friend,’ and its unwritten companion, ‘Hate your enemy.’ I’m challenging that. I’m telling you to love your enemies. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst. When someone gives you a hard time, respond with the energies of prayer, for then you are working out of your true selves, your God-created selves. This is what God
  17. 17. He gives his best—the sun to warm and the rain to nourish—to everyone, regardless: the good and bad, the nice and nasty. If all you do is love the lovable, do you expect a bonus? Anybody can do that. If you simply say hello to those who greet you, do you expect a medal? Any run-of-the-mill sinner does that. “In a word, what I’m saying is, Grow up. You’re kingdom subjects. Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity. Live generously and
  18. 18. BITTERNESS KEEPS US FROM PRAYING UNDEFILED (PURE) PRAYERS THAT PRODUCE THE ANSWERS AND RESULTS WE ARE SEEKING FROM GOD THROUGH OUR
  19. 19. Blockage# 4: UNCONFESSED SINS AND SECRETS SINS • Unconfessed sin often keeps us from spending time in prayer, and much of the time we are unaware that it is the problem. There are times when we are upset with God and would rather not talk with Him in prayer.
  20. 20. •1 John 1:9 (NIV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
  21. 21. •James 5:16 (NLT) Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful
  22. 22. •1 John 1:9 (ESV) Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is
  23. 23. Blockage# 5: STRONGHOLDS OF THE MIND •Stronghold is anything that resists the will of God from being done on the earth as it is in heaven.
  24. 24. • “A stronghold is a mindset filled with hopelessness that accepts as unchangeable something that he or she knows is contrary to the will of God.” - Ed Silvoso
  25. 25. SOME STRONGHOLDS OF THE MIND • A.) MISTRUST IN THE GOODNESS OF GOD • - Mistrust in intercession is when we do not really believe that God wants to answer our prayers. • - It’s critical when we are struggling in such a way that we stop and allow the Holy Spirit to illuminate any faulty or negative thinking, and surrender emotions that might keep us from praying in faith.
  26. 26. SOME STRONGHOLDS OF THE MIND • B.) STRONGHOLDS OF WRONG BELIEFS • - What we believe makes up our worldview: how we see the world around us, how we think it should operate, and how we think people should act and believe, And how we view the world has a great deal to do with the way we were educated.
  27. 27. • - Sadly, many Christians, and intercessors, are ignorant of how to deal with the schemes of Satan has set up in people’s minds. • 2 Corinthians 2:11 (NASB) so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes.
  28. 28. OUR SOLUTION •THE WEAPONS OF BINDING AND LOOSING • Matthew 18:18-19 (NKJV) v18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. v19 “Again I say[a] to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
  29. 29. • In essence, “binding” is warfare prayer that comes against something that is not of God, and “loosing” is praying for the full fruit and flow of the Holy Spirit into a situation.
  30. 30. • Realize that there are strongholds of AGNOSTICISM that must be bound in order to restore the person’s ability to hear the voice of God wooing them and revealing His truth.
  31. 31. • AGNOEO IT MEANS WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
  32. 32. •2 Corinthians 4:4 (NIV) v4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
  33. 33. • We all have friends and loved ones who struggle with agnostic thoughts – As you pray for these loved ones, I encourage you in the path of persistence, that they will see the truth, even through what seems to be a very long season.
  34. 34. CONCLUSION • GET RID OFF THE BLOCKAGES TO ANSWERED PRAYER THROUGH STRONG PRAYER LIFE. • BE PERSISTENT IN PRAYER; NEVER GIVE UP UNTIL THE ANSWER COMES. DO NOT QUIT!
