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.

    Praise God that He has kept our sixteen month old grandson, Michael, safe and developing as he has Down Syndrome and that the Lord will protect Michael and our family against false allegations of abuse from our daughter, Katie's, ex-boyfriend, Jordan. Thanks.

    My Lord and My Guardian angels has always been a large part of my life. I have so many miracles it is hard to tell them all. I guess the one I will tell is of the time I was called by my doctors office after having blood tests. The results indicated Leukemia and I was sent to an oncologist. To make a long story short I do not have Leukemia and am healthy today. Also the time they were sure that I had breast cancer and wanted to do a biopsy. I did not even have to have the biopsy as the Mammogram was clear when I went in for the procedure. These were both years ago. God has been good to me all of my life. As a retired RN I know that these were true miracles in my live. May you all live in the light of his Presents always and may that light heal you and met all of your needs.

    I prayed for my Son that he would go to rehab. And the next day he put himself in. Now I ask you to pray that he stays strong and remains sober. It is a long road but I feel with strength, love and lots of Prayers he will get there. Thank you all God Bless

    I sent you a Pray Request a few days ago for my estranged daughter to re-unite with us and for our family to experience the love and unity we used to have. Last night when we got home after taking our disabled daughter out to dinner, we found a tray of cookies waiting in the kitchen for us when we returned home. I texted my daughter, Stacy, and she responded. We texted back and forth and ended on a good note. "Thank You" from the bottom of my heart for all of your Prayers for our family. The Lord listened. "Thank You Lord" for this breakthrough and "Hope".

    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!
