I used to feel so guilty about praying for myself. Seriously. I had several chronic conditions that, while not life threatening, caused a lot of pain when they flared. I’d feel so bad about asking God to help me or take away the pain. I have no idea why I felt that way, but I felt selfish asking Him to help me. Sort of like I had the ‘gimmies.’ Then one day I happened upon this verse and it was like the V8 commercial where the person gets bopped upside the head. I guess God decided I needed a bop upside my head. When I prayed for myself, I honored and brought glory to Him! Let me tell you, that was an eye opener. No longer did I feel guilty asking God to help me. With anything. After all, that’s what He’s there for!
