Hindrances to Prayer - The Remedy
All hindrances to prayer can be remedied by confession and repentance. God doesn’t want your prayers to be hindered.

Forgive us where we fell short and allowed those hindrances into our life. We commit to pray. Aid our faith so that we can believe You for great blessings. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen!
