I often read about the differing opinions on social networking. You know, Facebook, Twitter, etc. I do have a Twitter and a Facebook account. I enjoy social networking online. It's fun although sometimes it can be very time consuming.
Last month, I posted a quick status update on FB requesting prayers for my SIL, Erin. One of my family members mentioned that I shouldn't have posted something so person on there. My response was that it was a prayer request. I didn't feel I was putting Patrick's personal business out there so much as asking for prayers. As I was driving down to Houston, my iPhone kept dinging letting me know someone had responded to my prayer request. They were praying for Erin. Each ding was a balm to my soul at a very frantic time.
I was grateful each and every one of those responses. I know some of the greatest prayer warriors even if only in cyberspace.
So, social networks? I love them.
