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 requested prayers that the Lord soften the heart of my supervisor and that he be fair with me ... It happened!

    Praise God! I submitted a prayer request on a Monday, and also asked some co-workers for their prayers and good thoughts, and by Wednesday, those prayers were answered. My husband has been interviewing for a new position off and on for almost a year with no results. He has been very unhappy in his current job and really struggling with it and also the job search process. This is yet another reminder that things happen on God's timeline, not ours. It's often difficult to be patient; however, we must remember that God is working on our behalf whether we know it or not. The job my husband got is better than all the others he interviewed for over the past year. God's favor is a true blessing!

    Please praise and thank God with us for how so promptly and wonderfully our prayers of yesterday were answered about helping my daughter and I have to have what turned into a pleasant and productive long Valentine Day's telephone. Especially for helping us as we prayed for God's guidance to hopefully say the right things to comfort her about thinking her life is over at 48 when not married, no children, no job, and nothing to look forward that with God's help, she will have good in her future. Also we thank God for working out that the vet could tell us in a telephone call what to do about our cat's symptoms, and that later he gobbled down the medicine prescribed mixed into a new food tonight without a problem. These two God blessings added extra joy to my husband and I celebrating our 53rd Valentine's Day. We thank, just as we always, ask in Jesus Christ name.
