I am one of the 7%

 A voyaging ship was wrecked during a storm at sea  and only two of  the men on it were able to swim to a small, desert-like island.  The  two survivors, not knowing what else to do, agree  that they had no  other recourse but to pray to God.

However, to find out whose prayer was more powerful, they agreed  to divide the territory between them and stay on  opposite sides of the island. The first thing they prayed for was  food. The next morning, the  first man saw a fruit-bearing tree on his side of the land, and he was  able to  eat its fruit.  The other man's parcel of  land remained  barren.

After a week, the first man was lonely and he  decided to pray for  a wife.
The next day, another ship was wrecked, and the only  survivor was  a woman who swam to his side of the land.  On the  other side of  the island, there was nothing.

Soon the first man prayed for a house, clothes, more  food.  The  next day, like magic, all of these were given to  him.  However,  the second man still had nothing.

Finally, the first man prayed for a ship, so that he and his wife could leave the island. In the morning, he found a  ship docked at  his side of the island.  The first man boarded the  ship with his wife  and decided to leave the second man on the island. He considered the  other man unworthy to receive God's blessings, since  none of his  prayers had been answered.

As the ship was about to leave, the first man heard a voice from  heaven booming, "Why are you leaving your companion  on the island?"  ;

"My blessings are mine alone, since I was the one  who prayed for  them, the first man answered.  "His prayers were all unanswered and so he  does not deserve anything."

"You are mistaken!" the voice rebuked him.  "He had only one  prayer, which I answered.  If not for that, you would not have  received any of my blessings."

"Tell me," the first man asked the voice, "what did he pray for that I should owe him anything?"

"He prayed that all your prayers be answered."

For all we know, our blessings are not the fruits of our prayers  alone, but those of another praying for us.
