I have to admit, one of my favorite parts of social media is the prayer connections it offers. When someone has a need, they can ask others to lift them up, and hundreds of prayer warriors go to work. I’ve seen so many answers to prayer, and I celebrate each one. Even the ones that aren’t answered exactly the way we might have asked, because even in those times when God answers “no,” I see faith and trust expanded. Prayers avail much. They connect us more intimately to our Father. Prayers are powerful and effective!
