(2)SELFISHNESS- we only care about ourselves and not the needs of others. We do not care if a person does not know about Christ, if a person is going to heaven, we only care about our comfort, our needs. You see it takes a caring , loving heart to come before God and intercede for someone. Selfishness doesn’t care.
(3)UNBELIEF- We really don’t believe God will act upon our prayers. So why pray. We don’t believe God said,”My house shall be called a house of prayer.” We don’t believe the word of God when it says, Matthew 7:7-8 (HCSB) “Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you.For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
