In this post, we will look at the popular Catholic prayer to remove stumbling blocks and how it can be helpful in times of trial. We will learn its meaning, the history behind it and find out the conditions for saying this powerful prayer. Stumbling blocks are hindrances to one’s advancement or achievement. They are the major hurdles that stand in our way and need to be overcome before any success can be achieved. The Bible recognizes this truth and gives believers the power to crush such stumbling blocks. King David’s life serves as an example of how to deal with any stumbling blocks we may come across. Lets learn how he dealt with his stumbling blocks and how we should apply his strategies in dealing with ours. I read some time ago in the messages from the books of the miracles and wonders displayed by God, in the deliverance from dire trouble or impossible conditions many times, that when martyrs, saints, or even sinners asked to be released from their captivity, usually without fail they have answered their prayers, which have given them the freedom they sought.
Stumbling blocks are troublesome. There are many stumbling blocks in our lives that cause us to fall. In your life, stumbling blocks could be related to family problems, job loss, financial trouble, health issues and many more. Stumbling blocks can lead to sleepless nights and make you feel like the best years of your life are gone with the wind. But you must remember that God loves you very much and only allows these problems in your life so that you would seek his help. So I want to pray for you to remove these stumbling blocks from your life and move forward with a stronger conviction! We all experience stumbling blocks in our lives. These stumbling blocks can cause us to stumble in our spiritual growth, careers, relationships and even in our daily lives. Prayer has the power to remove these stumbling blocks.
I had been experiencing a lot of stumbling blocks in my life. I wasn’t able to get any good marks at school, no job I applied for gave me a call back and worse still I kept breaking up with girlfriends. I have tried all the possible ways to get rid of stumbling blocks but nothing worked for me. When I was about to lose hope, after getting so fed up with life that one day I sadly prayed to God and said “God, please remove all my stumbling blocks”. We all find ourselves facing stumbling blocks at times. Whether it’s an addiction, or a habit that you can’t seem to break. A relationship that has gone awry and you don’t know what to do. Or you have a wrongful attitude about someone and you need to set it straight. Here’s a word from the Lord that might be able to help your situation and remove stumbling blocks from your path. Stumbling blocks are bothersome obstacles that come in our way and prevent us from proceeding. In general, our stumbling block could be anything but most commonly it is having fear, bad luck, force majeure or stumbling upon big crisis in life.
Prayer To Remove Stumbling Blocks
1 Corinthians 16:9
“for a wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.”
Previously, we talked about Hindering Spirits in one of our articles. In this article, we will talk about another satanic device similar to Hindering Spirits: stumbling blocks.
Kindly watch Evangelist Joshua powerful videos on YouTube
Stumbling blocks are satanic devices for hindrances. Stumbling blocks limits people’s progress. It causes stagnancy, delay in manifestation of destiny, loss of glory, and many other unfortunate things.
Stumbling blocks can be used by Hindering Spirits, because while Hindering Spirits are principalities in the spiritual realm, stumbling blocks are just events. They are occurrences that, though not principalities, they can do the damage that principalities do. Stumbling blocks may appear in the form of a bad character, an uncouth talk, laziness, poor work ethics, etc.
A man or woman who has chronic bad characters may find it difficult to make progress in life because the bad characters may make him/her lose great opportunities and helpers of destiny. Many people have lost great opportunities or lose their connection to big, successful people because of their dirty characters. Whether people who have a bad character know it or not, the bad character is a stumbling block for them so long as it steals their blessings, makes them lose a vital connection or a great opportunity that would have catapulted them to the next level.
Someone who doesn’t know how to guard and discipline his/her mouth already has a stumbling block in his life because his disrespectful words and insults will make him/her lose blessings and helpers. Similarly, a lazy person or someone who has a bad work ethic will lose blessings and many good things because those negative attributes will prevent progress and thus, they are stumbling blocks.
Simply put, stumbling blocks are mostly some negative lifestyle or character in our life that the enemy uses to delay or deny us of progress in life, or to push us backwards.
Sometimes, what we need to solve some problems in our life is not prayers. Sometimes we just need to change our attitudes and lifestyles and all will be well with us. It’s not all problems that are caused by Village People. But some problems are introduced into our lives by Village People through our own attitudes and lifestyles. Sometimes, Satan and his human agents use what is in us to get to us.
Do the rich and successful people you know suddenly stop speaking with you or cut you off completely? Check yourself. Do men promise to marry you and then suddenly dump you for no seemingly no reason? Does your boss in the office who used to be nice and cordial with you suddenly hate you? Check yourself. Did the parents of all the men who promised to marry you reject you the very first time they met you? Check yourself.
Always check yourself first. Check yourself and do serious self-questioning before diverting to the spiritual. If you checked yourself and you see no character or attitudinal fault lines, that explains why there are stumbling blocks on your way or in your life, and then you can pray fervently and tirelessly. If you are sure the problem is spiritual you can then pray these prayers to remove stumbling blocks. I believe the power of resurrection will roll away the blocks.
