Last night when we had just finished praying my little girl asked, “Why do we each say, yes Lord, during each others prayers?”

We’ve always done this since she was a toddler so I guess she always felt comfortable saying it herself but she didn’t really know why.

This started a discussion on the verses found in Matthew 18:19-20. (19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.)

As we proceeded to talk about prayer, the conversation turned to how often God had answered these night time prayers of ours. So many times He answered in a way that was so far beyond what we could have imagined.

That one simple question, last night, did so much to encourage and bless each of us. I went to bed so grateful to God for answered prayer, but also for the little ones he uses to make us see Him more clearly.
