Today it is all about networks and networking. To be able to connect with other people with similar interests either for leisure activities or for your job - makes it very nice to have the input you desire from others. The team concept - working with multiple people - rather than independently - removes a lot of the stress that normally comes with projects. Being able to maximize your personal skills - while allowing others with different skills manage other facets of the project - means maximized efficiency - with a lot less stress than you would have if you were doing it all on your own. Efficiency and economy of resources is the major benefit of networks.
When we come to God in prayer it is typically an individual experience. There are times - when networking with others who share the same faith perspective - is a bonus. Asking God for special blessings in intercessory prayer - is always better when you network with others who are willing to add their prayers to yours for special intentions. The same concept of shared prayer - networking - is what communal prayer at Holy Mass is all about - as we gather as a family of faith - and add our separate voices - to give life to prayers for others as in the prayers of the faithful - is the best example of our faith in action. God - Me - We!
