“Prayer is not only a means of getting blessing for ourselves.
It is one of the chief channels of influence by which,
through us as fellow workers with God,
the blessings of Christ’s redemption are dispensed to the world.”
from Abide in Christ by Andrew Murray
Usually when I pray, I’m bringing my concerns to God, rather than seeing myself as a channel through which God brings his blessing down.
It’s not just me coming to God, but God coming to me.
