During the Dedication of the newly constructed Temple, Solomon prayed to God, asking Him to forgive and restore the people of Israel when they sinned 2 Chronicles God then told Solomon in the verse above that, when the Israelites sinned, they would be restored after going through a four-step process.
The first step in spiritual restoration is humility. To start the restoration process we must first recognize our nothingness before an Almighty God.
I have neither rights nor commendation before God. On my own, I am both guilty and unworthy to be in his Holy presence. God is everything; I am nothing. The second step in spiritual restoration is prayer. Prayer is an act of humility.
Fasting Day 9: Spiritual Warfare Prayers for Breakthrough and Divine Restoration
Prayer is NOT presenting God with a list of desires. However, Jesus showed us that the primary purpose of prayer is to prepare persons to perform the perfect will of God Matthew 6:Luke After we humble ourselves before God, we then seek to discover His will for our lives through prayer.
Prayer is the doorway through which we enter into communion with God. It is to be in constant dialogue with God. When Moses communed with God he came so close that after the experience his face shone Exodus Paul communed with God and was caught up in the third heaven 2 Corinthians God wants to lead us from humility into prayer; and from prayer into communion with Him.
Repentance is the offspring of communion. So, God was addressing those who are already in the fold. Repentance for believers is described in Romans as transformation by a renewing of our minds. These four steps of spiritual restoration, though sequential, are not independent of each other. The believer that humbles himself before The Almighty God will pray, because he recognizes that he must submit to the will of the Lord of Hosts.
And the believer that walks in communion with God cannot help but have his mind renewed. I need someone to pray for me. I was homosexual before but I fall again. My testimony as christian was destroy. I am confuse, doubt, and emotionally depress. Please help me in prayer. May God bless you richly! Thank you so much! We are thankful to God that he used this message to give you a blessing. May His name be glorified. Regarding your struggle with sin, please be assured that many, many believers also struggle with repetitive sin.
We pray that you will overcome this weakness as He transforms you by the renewing of your mind. Study His word constantly, pray without ceasing and draw strength from The Holy Spirit which indwells your life. We will lift you up in our prayers.HINDRANCES TO PRAYERS BY DR PAUL ENENCHE
Thanks for sharing vhuhwavho!Our God is a great God and that of restoration. There is a great seed of fruitfulness, dominion, multiplication, replenishment in every human God has created Gen. But corruption and manipulation have changed the original design and the ability of the seed to produce according to its purpose. However it takes for one to know and appreciate the ability of God to turn that situation around. There must be a tone, or demonstration of desperation to put God on the stand and challenge him by his words.
Jabesh cried unto the Lord for divine restoration, God heard him and granted his five requests for restoration. Mark — You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

The devil is fighting hard to stop the restoration and new beginnings in our lives. He wants us to be defeated and not achieve what God has promised us. If you can understand his tactics you can be watchful and achieve what God wants you to this year. Subject: Hindrance to Restoration Scripture: 2 Kings This morning we are going to identify some hindrances to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This year God has promised us new beginnings in the Holy Spirit but if we are not careful we may miss out and at the end of we may still be disappointed for not achieving what God has promised to you and me.
As long as the high priest, Jehodia was around Joash he did what was right. After the death of Jehodia, King Joash was easily influenced by the officials of Judah and the entire country went back to idol worship. He was easily influenced by the world. Joash had both spiritual and nonspiritual influence upon his life. The moment his spiritual influenced ceased he slipped out of godly ways.
We live in this world and we have spiritual influence in the church, but outside there are a lot of worldly influence that we come across on a daily basis. Never be influenced by the world.

Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine this--not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother's way.
And it will be said, "Build up, build up, prepare the way, Remove every obstacle out of the way of My people. Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who cause dissensions and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned, and turn away from them. Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.
Therefore, thus says the LORD, "Behold, I am laying stumbling blocks before this people And they will stumble against them, Fathers and sons together; Neighbor and friend will perish. For we wanted to come to you--I, Paul, more than once--and yet Satan hindered us. But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.
You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's. Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of "Grace, grace to it!
As they went along the road they came to some water; and the eunuch said, "Look! What prevents me from being baptized? But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
And He said to them, "Take nothing for your journey, neither a staff, nor a bag, nor bread, nor money; and do not even have two tunics apiece.
For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting. And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed.There is a prophetic move in our day to extend the frontiers of the Kingdom of God; to enlarge our influence, potential, graces and impact in our world. Despite this move of the spirit, there are some hindrances that must be addressed if our lives will be a fulfilment of this move.
Sin will hinder a man from experiencing enlargement unless it is repented of, confessed and forsaken sin must not to be covered. You must be willing and obedient in order to enter into divine enlargement. The word of God must become instructions that must be obeyed to enjoy enlargement. To be cursed is to be empowered to fail. In the battle of Ai, sin denied the Israelites enlargement until the sin was dealt with.
Deal with the sin in your life, if you are going to experience enlargement. It was sin that robbed Reuben of his inheritance and made him an unstable man. Unfaithfulness : A Christian who has not passed the test of faithfulness does not qualify himself for enlargement. Enlargement means more responsibility and anyone who has been found unfaithful in his or her present level cannot move to the next level.
In the school of God, no one is promoted on trial!
And he said unto him, Well done, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities. Are you faithful at your present level? There is no enlargement by God for an unfaithful person. Pick up your assignments again and step up your faithfulness for divine trust.For such prayersfasting maybe required when your dealing with higher level spiritual wickedness in the high places.
Daniel was dealing with a high level spirit that ruled the country of Persia during the reign of King Cyrus. Think of the 40 day and night fast that Jesus had to go through alone in the desert. Can you imagine what would have happened had Jesus succumbed to the schemes of the Devil? Jesus was successful in this fight because He knew what He was up against Ephesians I wondered what was the hold up? I then proceeded to pray for wisdom to handle these individuals because I could not rely on my own understanding to deal with the issue.
In this instance…the Lord removed them out of my path and I received my breakthrough miracle. You do your part in the spiritual battle by fasting if need be and praying and God will do His part to help bring you to your promise. Seek Spiritual Wisdom in this Arena. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.
Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Lack of Repentance rooted in bitterness Hebrews. He instructs us to forgive those who trespass against us in Matthew This book really helped me to see how bitterness can hinder the prayers we have been pressing for God to answer.
Consider these Scriptures to help you think about Forgiving people and letting go of Bitterness:. Mark NKJV. I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. Hebrews NKJV. I think you now get my point right? I hope this may help you and enhance your prayer life and spiritual growth in the Lord. Change the things that you need to change and consider these things carefully and repent to God if you struggle with areas of unforgiveness.
I will fess up and say that I still have issues with bitterness that I need to deal with so this is an ongoing journey for me.
Stay blessed and seek Gods face with honesty and sincerity and He will hear from Heaven. For more information regarding Prayer and Praying effectively, I recommend reading books on the topic this includes the BIBLE and seeking wise counsel with those that are seasoned in the Word that are able to help you.
Those that are called to be Intercessors specifically by calling are great to talk to since they live and breathe prayer. They are very good resources in the prayer arena. Tarisai has a great post that I would certainly recommend reading that touches on How to increase your prayer life Pt 1 and How to Increase your prayer Life Pt. Beautiful post, showed me how im still struggling with forgiving. Girl got me tearing up.
