Description: We all know that God yearns to fellowship with us in prayer, but it can be a challenge to know what to pray for or to intentionally set aside time to pray.
Whether it’s a sin stopping us from going to God or we’ve been too busy entertaining the distractions of life, let’s explore some hindrances that prevent us from going to God in prayer.
If you struggle with any of these points, stop and say a short prayer, asking God to remove the obstacles that apply to you, so that you can build a rich, vibrant, and fulfilling prayer life.
