Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Last night I thought to myself,

"Who answers God's prayers?"

Surely He's got to have some.

And, in almost the same breath, I answered myself with
"We do."

Us.
The people.
The flawed general public.

The imperfect, messy humans who can't seem to consistently 'get it right' are the very essential ones who continue to answer His prayers.
When we're kind.

When we do good deeds.

When we smile at others.

When we share a laugh.

When we help.

When we hope.

When we support.

When we inspire.

When we go to Him for our asks.

When we seek Him without an ask.

Last night I thought to myself,

"Who answers God's prayers?"

And the answer is

me, and you, and them.

All of us.

Individually.

Collectively.

On this Christmas Day, and on every day that follows, remember that while you're seeking answers to your prayers, you're fully capable of answering the prayers of others and, by proxy, His.
