Philippians 1:3-4(KJV); I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,
Prayer has never been designed by God to be a self-seeking agenda.
A Christian who has matured in the understanding of prayer knows how to pray with the big picture in mind.
For example, if you are a business owner, do you only pray for your business? That is not wise.
There is an entire value chain involved and wisdom dictates that you learn to commit everyone within this chain to the Lord in prayer.
Think about it. If you are a school owner, what will happen if the parents of your students run into dire circumstances and can no longer bring their children to school. Doesn’t that affect you? If it does, how come you never mention them in prayer?
If you are a manufacturer of flour, what if your main supplier falls seriously ill and cannot supply you any more, won’t your business struggle? Doesn’t that mean you should pray for them too?
If you are a doctor, lawyer, surveyor, or any manner of professional, pray for your clients too. In the grand scheme of things, we are stewards of the people who contribute to our wealth and as a faithful steward, you ought to continually pray for these people.
