didn't send his disciples out solo. He sent them out in pairs. Pairs were — and still are — more than twice as effective as a single person in accomplishing the work of preparing people's hearts for the Kingdom of God and the Good News about Jesus. Established Jewish principles were behind Jesus' approach: 
- Testimony needed to be at the hands of two or more witnesses to be considered reliable.
- Two are stronger and more effective than one.
- To these principles, Jesus added a third one of his own: Where two or three gather, there he is present.
No matter how strong we are, we need a partner. Even the incredibly committed apostle Paul needed his co-workers and friends.  We need each other to do God's work and accomplish God's mission. Don't try to do it solo!
Father, I confess that there have been times when other brothers and sisters in Christ have let me down and caused me to want to try to do too much on my own. I also confess that it is easy to give in to the cultural assumptions about self-reliance and quit depending upon you. Please help me to open up more of myself to others in your family. Please use me along with others to advance the work of your Kingdom. In Jesus' name. Amen.
