Are There Hindrances That Block Prayers to God?

March 22, 2012, Mobile, Alabama – In his epic poem “Morte D’Arthur (lines 247-248), Alfred Lord Tennyson penned that “More things are wrought by prayer Than this world dreams of.” That couplet has become so popular it has even been carved or stamped onto gift shop souvenirs, desk and wall ornaments, and other such knick-knacks, many times without any proper attribution as to its author or origin. Of course, Tennyson refers to prayers that are both heard and heeded by God, but what about those prayers that go seemingly unanswered by God? Are they ignored? Could it be that there are actually hindrances that block God from responding to prayers as He desires to do? What can be done to clear these hindrances out of the way?
