When we pray, we do not bind God's hands. Prayers are petitions to a King. It is understood that they are subject to His approval or veto. Even Jesus prayed—"It it be your will, let this cup pass from me. Nevertheless, not my will but yours be done." Jesus was apparently praying for something that w...
I guess it is no more selfish to ask others to pray for one's concerns than it is to pray for them oneself. No one should be praying for anything that they doubt to be God's will (1 John 5:14). Yet, if someone thinks a certain thing to be God's will, and is willing to pray for it oneself, there is n...
