Re-Establishing “God Designed” Boundaries

  1. Remove .
    • Unforgiveness

      Mark 11:25 NIV
      And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. Matthew 5:23-24 NIV
      “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.1 Peter 3:7 NLT
      In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.

      1 John 3:21-22 NIV
      Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.John 15:7 ESV
      If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

    • Selfishness

      James 4:3 NIV
      When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.1 John 5:14 NIV
      This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

    • Doubt

      James 1:6-8 NIV
      But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
