Wrong motives – “You ask and you do not receive because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasure” (James 4:3).  Selfishness is one of the greatest hindrances to answered prayer.  Petitioning God for selfish reasons is certain to keep your prayers from being answered.  Over indulgence is sin.  Matt. 20:20-22; Luke 12:13-15).  Note a proper motive is recorded in 1 Corinthians 10:31, “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.  In other words, whatever you ask for in prayer and whatever you do in deeds (works) the motive should be to give God glory.
