Answered Prayers

It has been said there are three answers to our prayers: “yes,” “no” or “wait a while.”  However, underlying each and every answer is the silent promise, “I am here.”  Experience the power of God's love and feel the comfort of God’s presence in these true stories of answered prayer.

    I WAS A SINGLE MOTHER OF 5 CHILDREN, ON PUBLIC ASSISTANCE LIVING IN A SMALL RURAL COMMUNITY. I HAD NO HOPE FOR A DIFFERENT LIFE FOR MY KIDS THAN I HAD GROWING UP. MY MOTHER RAISED 9 KIDS ALONE. I WANTED SOMETHING DIFFERENT FOR MY CHILDREN. I WANTED LIFE FOR THEM. WITH LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS, I HEARD HE ANSWERS PRAYERS, SO I PRAYED AND ASKED FOR A JOB WHERE I COULD SUPPORT MY CHILDREN AND GET OFF OF PUBLIC ASSISTANCE. FOR EXERCISE I WOULD TAKE MY CHILDREN TO THE LOCAL FOOTBALL FIELD WHERE WE WALKED AROUND THE TRACK IT WAS HERE I MET A LADY WHO WORKED AT THE LOCAL HEALTH CENTER. WE BECAME ACQUAINTED AND SHE LEARNED THAT I HAD GONE TO SCHOOL FOR MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIST BUT NEVER COMPLETED MY LAST SEMESTER. WHEN A POSITION FOR A PHLEBOTOMIST WAS AVAILABLE SHE TOLD ME TO APPLY, BEFORE I PUT MY NAME IN, I PRAYED AND SAID OH LORD PLEASE LET THIS BE THE JOB YOU HAVE FOR ME, IT WASNT. MY TERM IN THE LAB LASTED 18 MONTHS. BUT THE PHARMACIST WHO WORKED THERE NOTICED MY WORK ETHIC AND ASKED IF I WOULD LIKE TO COME WORK WITH HER AND BE HER HELPER. WELL, I HAVE BEEN THERE FOR 22 YEARS NOW, ALL MY KIDS ARE GROWN WITH FAMILIES OF THEIR OWN. BUT THE GOOD LORD PUT ME WHERE I AM, SO WHENEVER HE WANTS ME TO MOVE, I AM CERTAIN HE WILL DO THE MOVING. UNTIL THEN, I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH A GOOD JOB, GOOD FRIENDS, AND MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL, A CLOSER RELATIONSHIP WITH MY SAVIOR!

    I just wanted to say thank you for your prayers. I ask for you to pray for my good friend who was having cancer surgery on Dec 10th 2014. She had stage 4 and it was in most of her body. They took the kidney historectomy and will have a col.bag the rest of her life but she can live with that. We just got news that all the results show they were able to get all the cancer now. It has even gone into the arteries by surgery. I know that God had the biggest hand in the healing. She is a 1st grade teacher and 41 years old. I am still praying by spring she will be able to get back to school. Thank you again for everyone at Guidepost that prayed for Her.

    I can not thank God enough for his mercy and grace. I was having problems paying my gas and light, even with DHS helping me my account has been placed on hold so they do not get cut off. The other thing is that I have passed my online classes, so I will be able to get my student loan and pay off some more of my debt and get ahead, on the things I need and the thing I want. Thank-you Jesus, Thank-you Jesus!!!!

    I prayed that my sis Hazel would come back to the family and she and her son came to visit me and we had a gift exchange. My sis Elaine & I both want to keep her at arms length as she says cruel things about people and is a very hurt person. I wished her a Merry Christmas and I thank God for all He has given me.

    Thank you, Lord Jesus, for providing a feasible solution to Amy and Dale's financial crisis. I continue to pray that Dale will overcome his health issues so that he may return to work and they can continue on the right financial path. I know, Lord, that you have a plan for Dale and will continue to bless him and his family. I pray today and always in your holy name, Jesus.
