Man's Good or God's Righteousness?

About 30 years ago I attended a prayer group one evening at my church.  I was a young Christian but was so in love with Jesus and spent every spare moment in His Word and His Presence.  That evening He taught me a valuable lesson that I have never forgotten.

The group was small and we put our chairs in a circle in the front of the sanctuary.  In attendance was a small, sweet lady that I had seen at church.  I didn't know much about her except that she was single and lived alone.  

Before the prayer time started she gave a prayer request.  She stated that she did not have enough money to pay her utility bill that month and would we pray that God would supply the finances she needed.
