Approach: Reading how doubt inhibits effective prayer.

Hermeneutic objective: Practicing careful observation to understand foundational concepts.

Theological objective: As your faith grows, you learn more about God and His will. The more spiritually mature you become, you pray more in accordance to God’s will and plan. The power of prayer is seen in the context of God's will and plan.

Doubt disrupts this process of growing your faith and inhibits your ability to learn of God and His will and consequently lessens your ability to pray effectively.
