Ever feel like a prayer hog?

I stole that prayer hog from an online friend. (thanks Mel!) Anyway, know how sometimes you are in the midst of many trials, either all at one time, or one right after another? Do you sometimes feel that if you ask, or continue to ask as each trial comes, for prayer that people will feel like you are a prayer hog? I do. When we don't ask for prayer each and every time we are in a situation that we need prayer, the devil wins. He is right there in your ear saying, you are asking to many times, to often, etc. Or he is saying what will they think of you if you ask for prayer for that? Or how about they will think that is foolish to ask prayer for, that isn't important enough to ask others for prayer for, they will think that is dumb. Stop letting the devil win. When you need prayer ask. The word says:

Ecc 4:12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Mt 18:19 Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father which is in heaven.
:20 For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them.

Let's keep that in mind next time we need prayer.
Also remember Jesus prayed with the disciples. If He needed people to pray with who are we to think we don't?
