21 Days of Abundance Fast- day 1

Scriptures: James 4:3; 1John5:14-15; Proverbs 28:9; Mark 11:25; Jeremiah 17:9 1Pet3:7; Isaiah 58:2-5; 1John1:8; James1:5-7

“But this kind of demon does not go out but by prayer and by going without food so you can pray better.”
We are in the season of seeking God’s face and favour for the year ahead. This is a time where we earnestly seek our God through prayer and fasting. We know that prayer along with fasting has power to move God in an amazing way over our lives, however there are hinderances that can leave your unanswered even though you’ve remained faithful to your fast.

What hinders our prayers?
1. Selfish motives; prayers that are self centred stand a high chance of not being answered by God. When you make a request to God, ask yourself why am I asking for this? Is it to please people or to be boastful or is it to glorify God. Remember my friend that whatever God does He does it so that He may be glorified.
2. Prayer that is away from scripture; Proverbs 28:9 says the prayer of someone who does not heed the law, is an abomination. You can not pray prayers that are away from God’s Word and expect God to answer them. Whatever you request from God must be backed by His Word, in other words it has to be aligned to the will of God.
3. An unforgiving heart; the bible is clear that whenever we stand before God to pray we must forgive all those who have wronged us, just as God forgave us from our sins when we accepted His Son as our Lord and Saviour. When we go to God we must go to Him with clean hearts, free of bitterness. Choose to forgive those who do you wrong not for their sake but for your sake, because it is you who stands to lose by unanswered prayers. My friend let go of the hurt, anger and bitterness. If Jesus could forgive hanging on the cross in deep pain- so can you by God’d grace.
4. Family discord; the bible says God does not answer the prayer of a man who does not honour his wife. In other words God is says we must live right at home first before we can come to Him expecting answered prayer. Treat your spouse right, your parents, your siblings before coming to God.
5. Unconfessed sin; God takes delight on a sinner that confesses their sin and repents. Like a parent, He loves and admires His children who own up take responsibility for their mess. Even though God knows everything that is done in secret He expects us to own up to our mistakes.

6. Doubt; if you are not going to believe in God’s power and might, you are not going to see your prayers answered. Whenever we go to God in prayer we must by no means doubt that He is able to turn things around in our favour.
