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 prayer about my health 2 weeks ago and about my car needing repairs last week. I give God praise for answering both of these request. I am feeling much better and God gave my son the wisdom to fix my car,although he doesn't know a lot about mecanics.Isn't our heavenly Father so good to us? Thanks to all who prayed with me. I love you in Christ Our Lord!

    My son is sober. He completed his probation. He never did that before. He has a good job with benefits, he has a nice place to live and is moving into an even nicer place at the end of the month. He is well in mind and body and spirit. Only God could have this miracle happen. He sees his potential in life. Only God could deliver him, with his own hard work as well, to this sober and healthy life. I am so grateful my heart swells...I have tears for this success. He has his life back.

    Hi, I came across this answered prayer when googling 'What does it mean to trust God'. Just wanted to encourage others to be [ouch] patient when praying. "About three years ago I was driving a car I had been driving for about 15 years and the car was 5 years old when I got it. Needless to say the last several years we owned the car we (my husband and I) put a lot of money into it for repairs. Well, it finally got to the place where we just couldn’t put into it as much money as it would take to keep it running, and we could not buy another one. I talked to God about it. I told Him that He had someone that could give me a car. Then I left it in His hands. I have a good friend that was getting too old to drive and was going to sell her car. I told her to decide how much she wanted for the car and I would see if we could buy it. Now listen to this. The car was 9 years old but only had 16,000 miles on it and had been taken good care of. This was 6 months after I had talked to God about it. When I asked her to think about how much she wanted for her car she said I am just going to give it to you. And she did. Hallelujah!!!"

    "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."

    Thank you for the prayers for all of my family recently. Within a couple of days of requesting prayer for my daughter who was auditioning as a performer in Branson, she was called and cast in a show there as a feature performer for the coming season. Again, thank you to all who prayed along with us and continue to do so. Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find. Amen
