"Why don't people pray beyond the sick list?"

One last quote from David Powlison.
"Why don't people pray beyond the sick list? We pray for circumstances to improve so that we might feel better and life might get better. These are often honest and good requests - unless they're the only requests we make. Detached from the purposes of sanctification and a yearning for the coming of the King, prayers for circumstances become self-centered."

[David Powlison Speaking the Truth in Love pp. 124]
