I really liked how you isolated and described the desire of Evangelical Christians to be one the chosen people. They seem to really want that reward of special consideration from a God that many Christians profess to be a servant of. They seem to be praying to be anointed as one of God’s chosen people by their action and their words. I use the word “seem” here because I can’t read their minds, I can only infer from observation.

I think it’s rather difficult to be a servant of God if prayer extends beyond something like asking for knowledge of God’s will for oneself and the power to carry that out. If Evangelical Christians are looking for a reward, I think the reward they’re looking for can be found in service of others instead of seeking advantage over others.
