Day 71, March 12

Yesterday I wrote about a child's desire to fast on Fast Sunday.  It appears I'm not done with the subject of fasting and prayer.  The Saturday before that Sunday, I received an email from a friend sent to several of us in the ward (church) about their son and his pregnant , asking us to pray for them as the daughter-in-law was in the hospital trying to carry her baby to a safe delivery time.

Immediately I got to my knees and started my prayers for this young couple.  At the same time, I was awed by the idea that many of us would be fasting and praying for this purpose.  I firmly believe in the power of linked prayers.  I know that Heavenly Father hears each individual prayer; I also know that He hears the joined prayers of many.

Joy for today:  joining in prayer and fasting for friends.
