#17 The God’s answer to prayer is designed to glorify His faithfulness and not mine
I used to selfishly think that God answering my prayer would bring me respect from people and then I could just point to God and say he did it. “What’s selfish about that?” you ask? The fact that I wanted the respect factor. While I wanted people to see God’s power, I wanted them to see me praying. God answers prayer to glorify himself and my selfish desire to share in that is wrong. Now years later, there are times I forget to pray (old age probably- LOL), yet God still answers pray and that is His faithfulness on display! Bless the Lord, my forgetful soul!!
