The Bag of Coins

Are you someone who struggles to pray for yourself but will pray for others? Say, you have a bag of coins. All the people around you need money, so you give them out until they’ve all gone. You want to keep giving out to others, but that bag has to be filled up again.

I think it’s important to pray for ourselves – that we would be filled with God’s Holy Spirit, so He can then flow out of us to help other people (a jug of water won’t overflow unless it’s full). I can’t fill your bag of coins; what I can do is point you in the direction of that heavenly bank!
