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 God for providing a miraculous "timing" solution for a new financial problem we didn't even know to pray for regarding our daughter's health needs. She learned last week that her medical insurance was refusing to pay this year for her essential medication that has helped relieve her terrible PMDD hormally caused symptoms that occur for 10 days every month that at times make her behave as if she is insane. God-fortunately her specialist found that at last there is a generic that will work as well as the "brand" her insurance will cover that was just put on the market, which was not the case last year as all the generics lacked the very thing she needed. The timing of this has got to be one of the long list of miracle solutions just when we need them most that God has done for our family! We praise and thank God and all who have so faithfully prayed with us for protection for our daughter month after month during her 10 "bad" days each 27 when she can get suidical or her hormones so alter her mood she can't stop herself from doing things that damage her relationships and have cost her all her friends and even doctors have "fired" her. We also praise and thank You God for helping us financially also this week when my husband's light weight-to-travel-with-on-business computer died. Thank You God for the clerk You guided us to who found a number of ways to cut the cost of the new computer my husband selected when it was discovered none were "in stock" so she could then discount and sell him the three month old floor model. These two financial blessings from God this week will save us thousands of dollars this year and make it less necessary to take money from dwindling retirment funds because of how bad the world's economy is doing. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    Thank you Lord that D & R are working on their marriage and want it to be centered around you. Thank you that L got a new and much better position. And thank you for continuing to restore G and I. There is still work to be done between us but I know you are working it out.

    Thank You, Lord God, for the amazing ways You answer our prayers. Even when my faith dims, You know that I still believe You. Even when I've tried to work out every scenario in which I think my problem might be solved, You have an even better plan. I love You, Lord. Thank You for answering my prayer today, and thank You for strengthening my faith. You truly are The God of Love and Mercy.

    back in 2007, I asked for prayers for my son, Joshua who was depressed and confused. Now he is a junior in College. He has a lot of friends. He has a girlfriend who goes to a different college but they see each other when they can. Thank you because of all your prayers, my prayers were answered.

    Thank you God for your blessings. Today marks the fourth anniversary of my husband's death and I am grateful I have a dear friend to share it with me. What seemed like a dire animal emergency early this morning with one of my dogs, clawing/pawing his face, whimpering turned out to be something easily managed. I prayed after I called the vet. I was on my way to get my purse/car keys and had the thought to check his mouth one more time. He had something wedged over his back molar and I was able to remove it. He's okay. Thank you dear God. I love this dear rescue dog who was so horribly abused and neglected.
