Psalm 37:3

There can be hindrances to receiving answers to prayer and healings.  If you are not seeing results, either you have not persevered long enough or there is a hindrance blocking it.  Do not allow doubt to invade your conversation, or into your heart.  Believe, and give it time, knowing that God will not let His Word return unto Him void.  Under Hindrances Blocking Answers, there is a list to examine if you are concerned as to why answers are not forthcoming.



There are immediate answers.  “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer;  and while they are yet speaking, I will hear”  (Isaiah 65:24).


There is waiting patiently, believing, and thanking God every day for the answer which came the moment you asked, but sometimes we have to wait, like Daniel did.  God’s time and His way of answering may not be the way or time we expect it, but the answer will come, for “nothing is impossible with God”  (Luke 18:27;  Ezekiel 12:21-28).


If there never is an answer, maybe God has a reason for not answering this prayer.  Many have had the experience of thanking God that He sees ahead, knowing that if we had knowledge of the future, we would not pray that prayer.  We should not apply this to a salvation request, for “God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”  (II Peter 3:9).


Doubt is a robber!  (James 1:6-7)


Doubt is an outright distrust of the love and care of the Heavenly Father and this is a SIN!  “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee:  He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved”  (Psalm 55:22).  The devil would like to rob you of every blessing:  disbelief, fear, worry, and confusion are all mixed up with doubt.  “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will shew to you today:….”  (Exodus 14:13).  “God hath not given us the spirit of fear;  but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”  (II Timothy 1:7).
