I just can't help but wonder what such an idea says about our idea of the nature of God. When we believe God will intervene on a given matter only if we, or enough people, pray that God does so...then what does that say about God's nature?
That lonely old soul who has no one praying for him...but he's a righteous man, is he just SOL, because he doesnt know anyone? Man, that'd be a downer...
I think one person praying is just as important as multiple people praying. And I don't believe that is the only way that God will intervene. Sometimes he intervenes even without prayer. I believe he knows our desires/needs/concerns even without us having to voice them through prayer.
