That’s what I asked myself as I finished praying before I see my client this morning. Would God be more faithful in answering my prayers because I was praying for the good of someone else? All my prayers have been getting answered with ignorance lately, at least from what I can see. All my prayers, except those for others. I prayed so hard this morning that my girl would be doing well today and that I could really be what she needed. It seems like everyday I remember to pray that, which is most days, things go so well for us. But when I forget, it all goes to pot. And I’ve even learned, it doesn’t happen unless I ask God for help before I need it. If I get there and she’s freaking out and I remember that I forgot; then I might as well not pray at all. Nothing makes it better.
So, my question is does God care more when we pray for help for others? And also, should I get people to pray for me? I know that sounds selfish, but I need God’s help here and pray as I might, I’m not seeing it. Maybe I should pray that I see God’s help. Maybe it’s already there.
