What obstacles are preventing you from achieving all that God wants you to? What or who is holding you back? Often we do know what is holding us back. But we do not want to give up and release what’s holding us back. Instead, we grab on to the obstacles, rather than holding on to God.
Today, examine your life carefully and make that step towards fulfilling all that God wants you to! Release those barriers and obstacles. Let’s pray.
Prayer To Remove Obstacles
Trusting God’s Guidance in Times of Obstacles
Heavenly Father, I long for clarity and relief from the obstacles in my life. The barriers before me seem unyielding and insurmountable, causing confusion, delays, and discouragement. Lord, You are the God of impossibilities. You make a way where there seems to be no way.
Mighty God, I put my complete trust in You to remove the hindrances that stand in my way. Whether they are obstacles in my personal life, professional journey, or spiritual walk, I believe that You can break every chain and set me free.
Lord, please give me wisdom to recognize the stumbling blocks that are of my own making and courage to remove them, as well as faith to believe that You will remove those obstacles that are beyond my control.
Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 This is what the Lord says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters… Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The Battle Is Already Won
Give us strength to persevere and overcome the obstacles in our lives, whether it is of You, to make us stronger or of the evil one who tries to knock us down.
Despite it all, satan’s evil works will not prevail, for the battle is already won and we shall overcome, just as You overcame the world.

Embracing Change and Moving Forward
Father, as obstacles begin to move and doors begin to open, grant me the discernment to recognize Your hand at work and the courage to step into the new opportunities You’ve prepared for me.
As I walk through opened doors, guide my steps so that I can continue to grow and fulfill Your purpose for my life.
Let this be a season of advancement, Lord. Remove fear and hesitation from my heart, replacing them with faith and holy boldness. Equip me with the skills, wisdom, and resources I will need to seize the opportunities You provide, and let Your light shine through me as I move forward.
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

Victory Over All Obstacles

Remove every obstacle that prevents us from getting closer to You, our merciful Savior, remove them! In Jesus name we pray! Amen!
