Jothany Balckwood could not be said better:
You need to be able to go to your Father yourself and speak on your own behalf. There’s a time for the saints to cover you in prayer, but we have to also have a personal relationship with God.
There is a time in our lives when we have to claim our own healing and blessings for ourselves. Very often we become lazy and often ask others to pray for us, but recently I have come to relaise that God wants us to believe in Him for ourselves; He wants us to claim our vistory and take back all that the devil has taken from us, ourselves. He wants us to come to Him and know in our hearts that he is God and Him alone will sustain us.
