The How To's of Prayer Ministry

6.6 Blockades to Answered Prayer

1. Use wise discernment in regard to unusual situations which may arise. Is the person you are praying for critical, or blames others for their condition. There may be a need for counsel before continuing in prayer.

2. Other issues that may need special counseling are matters of faith, unbelief that Jesus wants to work on their behalf, they may be defiance, may be in need of deliverance, have issues of unforgiveness or the need for professional counseling.

3. Have a back up plan for unusual occurrences so that they are not a distraction to others.
Some suggestions are an on call counseling team, a special hand sign to get the attention of the team leader to the situation to take these individuals aside to better meet their need.
