Powerful Faith of Little Children: My daughter’s Prayers Answered

It is almost very miraculous that God would answer the prayer of little children. Little children prayed very simple prayers out of their pure heart. They meant everything they say and God answers them instantly. Many times God uses us as Christians to answer prayers.

Unless we begin to respond to the prompting in our hearts, we would never truly understand the
