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 being overwhelmed with debts, so many people calling me for money that I could not afford to give, I submitted a prayer request to obtain more work hours, and my prayer has been answered. I even specified to obtain work hours that would be convenient for my school schedule, and it was answered. I have been working for a month now. I believe that all my other submitted requests will soon be answered too.

    Thank you so much for this touching and meaningful prayer. I have printed it off so I can look and read it daily. I have also sent this to my son so he can feel Gods presence right now as he is having a very stressful week at school and preparing for his national meet next week. I know that once he reads this email he will relax knowing this is all in GODS HANDS. THANK YOU JESUS. Just wanted you to know that I appreciate your prayer. I am starting to feel better so please keep the prayers coming, as well as keep praying for my son. He is really stressed right now and needs to feel Gods presence life right now. He is trying to get all his homework done before he leaves next Tuesday for Oklahoma and his national meet. Thank you ever so much for your prayers. BLessings to you all. sue -

    I was having surgery for a tumor in my pelvic area, it did not appear to be cancer but they would have to send it away. I requested prayer and this is the email I was able to send out to my prayer warriors:Hi allI am home and want to thank all of you for your prayers. Our God is such an awesome God and all our prayers were answered.I did not have a tumor. Once he got in Dr C- found an incarcerated ovary and a hernia. He had Dr. H-, the OB/GYN surgeon I had seen on alert. She was called in and once the they had ovary untangled from the intestines Dr Horton determined it was not damaged, nor were any of the other organs involved. They had caught the incarceration in the beginning stages. Nothing had to be removed and no biopsy was needed. This is what they were seeing on the MRI.Dr C- also repaired the hernia in the abdomen that involved scar tissue from a previous surgery, It was all done with 3 small incisions and quicker than they had thought. I may be back to work in 2 weeks and that is great.I did have to spend the night and God answered those prayers too! --My job now is to do what I am told to do in order to heal well.Thank you again for all your prayers. ShalomVicky
