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.

    God must be laughing at me. I was waiting and waiting for news from my son. His next day off was Friday, and I hoped by then I would hear news...I said the serenity prayer often and tired to put it in God's hands. Finally, exhauseted, I did, and just gave it up. He called last night wondering why he hadn't heard from us, since he had sent us an important email several days ago....and that night he found out it had bounced back to him, and we had never gotten it. how funny. we were both wondering where the other end of the equation was, and we were both right there all along...with God holding onto both ends. He had great news to share, but of course, God knew that all along.

    Was to have a test taken back in Sept but when I went to the Drs yesterday to have it done, she said I didn't need it now. I go back to see her in May and we will see how things are going. If anything would come up to call her and we might have to do the test but for now, no test needed to be done. PRAISE THE LORD

    I prayed for my son to get a new, bug free, nice place to live. THe financing seemed to be a mess and I thought he lost a great opportunity... He did not. God was always in control. Thank you Lord, for helping him go one more step up in life and away from where he was. Thank you for his sobriety.

    When I am alone and feel there is no one to turn to....I seek all of you. Recently, I asked for prayer for my son's medical issues and his surgery on Dec. 22nd. Praise God that for now he is healing, back to work, and feeling better than he has in a long, long time. The doctor said he needs one more month to be completely out of the woods, but I continue to be in awe of God's grace and healing and blessed by all of you that prayed for him!
