I want to be used by God for great and powerful things! However I do not want the glory for these things! While I was in Africa I heard a lot of things prayed for, one being for a young man to receive his ability to hear. We prayed and prayed and prayed, I prayed in the name of Jesus the only name with the ability for such things to happen through us. When one of my friends prayed, God not that anyone will hear of this and believe in our power but that you would be glorified! How often do we pray for things and do not even consider God's glory as a reason for these things to happen? I say to you pray for things, but do not pray for them out of selfish ambition. But, pray for things that might be used for God to be glorified!!! Nothing else really matters. I realized in that time that we were not really praying for this young man to receive the ability to hear we were praying for God to be glorified!
Glorify our Father!
