- Belief. We have to believe in Him and His ability to do anything. So often we say we do not doubt God, but find ourselves so amazed when He answers our prayer.
- Motive. We cannot come with selfish motives. The motive behind our prayers must always be His glory and the expansion of His Kingdom, not our personal desires.
- Conscience. In Mark 11:22-24 the same story is told with a little addendum...when you pray make sure you have forgiven anyone you hold a grudge against. In my entry on the 18th, I posted about forgiveness. When we harbor ill will toward someone in our hearts, it hinders our prayers.
