What we pray for reveals our hearts’ priorities. The content of our prayers is an indication of where our treasure is. This is why I have been convicted during this past year about how little I pray for others in comparison to how much I pray for myself. It is not that I fail to pray for others; I do, but often I skim over those prayer requests before focusing on the real important issue: my needs. That the majority of my prayer is self-focused reveals that my attitude is largely self-focused. Praying for others is a means God uses to direct our naturally inward focus toward others.
