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 asked for prayers for my husband to finally find a job. We had a baby due in a month , our savings were gone n unemployment had almost run out. One week after the prayer request was sent he heard of job opening, and the day before i had our third child he heard he had got the job. Thank u Jesus is all i can say.

    Please praise and thank God with us for the many special blessings we received this week. First, thank You God for protecting our daughter when a bunch of things went terribly wrong this past week on the 10th day before her period when her hormonal imbalance is ita worst that caused a serious emotional meltdown that also made her alcoholically relapse. We are so grateful God for how You care so tenderly for her when this happens and keep her from harm. And this time we want to especially thank You God for saving her from getting jailed for calling 911 to report a cop was harrassing a homeless person. Such things so upset her extra empathic self but naturally because her thinking gets so altered by her hormonal condition plus adding alcohol, this combination often results as it did this time in her over-reacting that can get her in trouble. She has long wanted as You well know God to have a job that in some way would help protect those who can't protect themselves that we know You'll guide her to or whatever other type of work that is Your will for her once You can help us locate the professionals and have the additional fund needs that will finally succesfully treat all that ails

    I requested prayer for our 30-year old unemployed son. Praise God he now has not 1 but 2 jobs. He has a full-time job with benefits as well as a part-time teaching job. I ask now that you join us in praising and thanking God for answered prayer.

    "God, thank you for all the grace and favors which you have given me through the prayers of your Apostle, Jude Thaddeus. St. Jude, I thank you for your intercession in response to my prayers. I will always be grateful to you and will spread to devotion to you. Be with us always so we may face our problems with courage and serenity."
