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 report! Thank you for praying for me regarding my PhD defense date. The lord answered my prayer and gave me a date to defend my PhD on may 22. Please continue to pray for me to be able to meet all my deadline and submit my PhD thesis in mid-April in time for the examiners to review it. God bless you.

    As I sat at my computer the other night,I asked the Lord to help me to keep strong fo my very ill husband.I also asked if there was some way I could find some extra money so that I could have my hair cut,even though I knew we had so many other bills.I felt very selfish,asking for this .My husband was wishing he could surprise me with a trip to the stylist for Valentine's day,he told me later.just before I signed off up came a new email asking me how I felt about my haircutter's place of business and how I in general felt about the establishment.It was late and I was very tired,so I just answered They were excellent but I could no longer afford the prices and would miss my stylist and her care in her work.I mentioned her name,as she and I had both been through tough times.Early the next morning there was another email offering me to come in and more or less tell them what I needed done and saying they would do the work for 1/2 the normal amount, since I had been a loyal customer for many years.I was given a phone number for the corporate ofices.I prayed as to what to do.Was I being selfish?How can I do this when we can barely cover our medical bills.Then I received a call
