You are right that I story was open for interpretation and different things can be seen from it.
When I said.
I told him that it was truly necessary for the other people and himself to get their prayers answered by having a large number of people praying, but that it wasn't necessary for I. I told him that it is necessary for him and them because that is there faith. But that I have all I faith and trust in Jah, so all I have to do is ask for what I need and RasTafarI will give as RasTafarI chooses. I told them that it was better that they pray for others instead of praying for I.
I Iverstand that some people need others to pray for them or need more than one person to pray for them. Some have asked I to pray for them and I do, and I sometimes pray for others even if they don't ask (not necessarily because these people need I to pray for them, but because I know Jah will hear I call).
What must be remembered is that there is only one reason that people need others to pray for them. It is because they are lacking in Faith.
Christ was vex when the disciples awoke him to stop the storm because if they had Faith, they would have stopped it themself.
 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
And when the disciples couldn't heal the youth. Christ was vex again because of their lack of Faith.
 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
So what I said to them and why I originally posted that story was to show people that it is for all to have such Faith, that they should just ask the Most High and know that the Most High will hear them. People have told I many different reasons why they need others to pray, but whatever reason people say to themselves to convince themselves that they need others to pray for them is just a building block of their faith. So by building their faith based on dependence and their own weakness of faith, they make it so, and they will never move away from that until they build their faith using different blocks.
Another reason I showed that story was that no matter how hard somebody tries to convince I of something less than I have Faith in, it will not change I Faith in the slightest way. One thing that is not really evident in I first post is how long he persisted and tried to convince I that having a large group of people pray for I is more effective than just asking the Most High Iself. He went on and on and that is why I finally showed him that "it is necessary for him and them because that is there faith. But that I have all I faith and trust in Jah, so all I have to do is ask for what I need and RasTafarI will give as RasTafarI chooses."
I don't expect everybody to have such Faith. And I own Faith is not as strong as it could be, so I trod to improve it. But even though I don't expect everybody to have such Faith, I know that everybody is capable of having such Faith.
And I also truly know that the prayer of millions of people is not even slightly more effective than the prayer of one Man or Woman, if the Faith of that Man or Woman is strong enough.
Selassie I is One, so millions of people and one person is the same thing, One.
