Can we block our own prayers?


What is your stance these days in light of all that is happening? What are your thoughts? Are they fear based or faith based? Are you standing on solid ground or shaky ground?

Do we need to shift our prayers from a place of fear and frustration and step onto more solid ground?

The Apostle Peter writes:

“Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. (2 Peter 1:3)

Based on this promise, I have challenged myself to change my position from pleading to God for help to stepping into a posture of thanksgiving and praise. God’s word says that He has already given us everything we need to live a life of abundance.

Asking for what we want or need is a good thing, but staying stuck in a place of continual pleading may block us from receiving or even seeing God’s provision and answers to our prayers because of our frustration and fear.

Let’s challenge ourselves to change our stance from one based on frustration and fear to one of thanksgiving and praise. Let’s change our focus and begin to be thankful for everything that has shown up in our lives so far.
