What is the biggest obstacle to your prayer life? Busyness, forgetfulness, skepticism, feeling inadequate, uncertain? As we continue through 40 Days of Prayer, we look through the Lord’s Prayer for guidance to this question. We find at the end of the passage found in Matthew 6:14-15, “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”  The biggest obstacle in our prayer life according to Jesus — is unforgiveness. Unforgiveness hinders our prayer life. We have been forgiven by God and therefore, since we are forgiven, we ought to forgive others. Is there someone that needs to hear you say, “I’m sorry?” Do you need to hear an apology?
