A chassid lived alone in the forest in order to chop wood for his livelihood. He came to his rebbe to complain that because of this, he could never pray with the minyan (community) in a synagogue. He cried to his rebbe about how much he really wanted to be able to pray with a minyan each day.
The rebbe said: How do you know that Hashem wants you to daaven with a minyan? Perhaps He derives more satisfaction from your longing to pray with a minyan?
