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 always answers all my prayers and all my dreams do come true. God has blessed me in ways that I didn't understand until yesterday. He does love us all unconditionally! Blessings and thanks!

    My mom unexpectedly went into a nursing home last spring due to pain and depression (her choice). The staff has been great, the pain and depression are under control, and she likes living there and was even driving again this fall. God has blessed us with this transition, and as her mind gradually slows down she will already be in the place where she needs to be.

    I requested prayer over a year ago for a friend who was separated from an unemployed alcoholic spouse. Her job was part time and she was trying to make house payments and raise four great kids. Many prayers have been answered. In December she got a good job with a company she had worked for about 10 years ago. She couldn't keep the house, but it was old and falling apart, and she and the kids are in a good situation sharing a house with a girlfriend. God doesn't always answer right away but he does show up.

    I asked for prayer about a week ago, in regards to our septic tank issues. We hadn't been able to bath, wash clothes, or do dishes in our home for almost 5 1/2 weeks. We had several people volunteer to come from our church, work, and other friends and family who removed our deck. This allowed the workers to get to our septic tank issues and discover the problem. We have water once again, and I thank everyone for their prayers. We were getting very discouraged, and now are renewed with how blessed we truly are!
