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.

    We praise and thank You God in advance for the surprising ways You'll provide extra income or work for my husband to help us pay or make up for the extra expenses we always have to cover besides "taxes" in our most expensive month of the year: April. We also thank You God for how you will provide the extra money needed to pay for the other special treatment(s) our daughter needs as well as pay off the dental bill loans that will soon also be due after her next surgery. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    Praise and thanks to God and all who prayed for the healing of the damage excess stomach acid did to my digestive system. After two months I could eat the annual St Pat's buffet without any problem other than what happens if eat too much. I thank God in advance that if an intenral exam is wise (because my mother had stomach cancer) to guide my doctor to order this test. Thank You God for the many ways You protected and helped our family this past week and for answering my prayer that our daughter and I would having a pleasant St. Pat's call. Also thank You God for continuing to answer the prayers about the project's negotiations/celebratory event scheduling as well as safe travel for all concerned. We thank in Jesus Christ's name.

    While I was laying in my hospital-bed within the first physical rehabilitation facility I was registered in to receive the help I needed post sustaining left-sided paralysis due to a serious TBI I prayed over, and over "to PLEASE be healed by the Lord"--thinking He would restore the lost abilities I had before my M.V.A. at age 29 & 1/2 but the paralysis in my muscles & limbs persisted. (No matter how depressed I was feeling as wife, and new- mother I was beginning to attend Christian church for the first time in my life. I did not receive "that prayer-answered" but after pondering this after years of being involved with Christian-studies I have discovered that "Prayer-answer" came to me in `the healing of my heart' when I became Born-again in my 40s.) I only praise the Lord, giving Him Glory-in the HIGHEST-measure possible. "Amen."

    I had asked for prayer this morning 3/12/1212 for prayer for the problems I was having with my mother's estate. The prayers were answered within an hour of my request. I remembered the name of a tax advisor who I had know for 11 years through my work. I'm retired now. Called his office and he called me back - helped me with the tax form I was trying to submit. THANK YOU LORD I know your guidance was there for me all along - I just wasn't listening. Asking for prayer opened my heart and my hearing your word.
