James 5:16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

The next time you pray, be mindful of how many times you use the words, me, my, and I. There’s nothing wrong with praying for yourself and your desires, but don’t forget about others.

Pray for that relative who hasn’t accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Loose ministering spirits that will encourage them to receive salvation. Pray for your friend’s child that may be stressing your friend out. Pray for the President. Pray that He makes decisions that align with the word of God.

There are so many other people and situations to pray for outside of ourselves. Equalize your petitions. Instead of always saying me, my, and I, include, he, her, and them.
