On Wednesday evenings, we had the opportunity to join with other believers and pray. I often thought, "Ugh, I don't really get much out of this. I can pray at home!" I knew my thinking was selfish, but I was busy. But of course, God corrected my thinking by leading me to a Piper sermon about why should we pray with other believers, and exhort them to pray for us:
2 Corinthians 1:11
You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.
So you mean, it's not about me? It's about God! We pray for others and tell others our requests so that when our prayers are answered many give thanks to God. So it is about His glory and Him receiving praise!!
