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've heard Him speak to my before, He has told/warned me ahead of time of many other things before they happen - many of which would have lead to very serious problems, probable injury or death. One day a few years ago, I have recorded it in a journal, I threw out a fleece - you know a challenge of myself against what He wanted me to do. What happened was utterly beautiful, He stayed with me the whole day long from sun-up to sundown doing different things that were humanly impossible, it was cool, I still laugh about that day and I did do what He wanted me to do. I have had dozens of other things he has done for me, by Himself or through others and I could sit here and type for hours. I love this guy, the Holy Spirit, I really do!!!!! And He loves me, too!!!!! Thank-you Jesus!!!!!! Your saved friend, Mark S.

    Thank you for the prayers of those who have read my prayer requests over the last several months. My wife and I are on our way to recovery of our marriage. Nothing could make me happier and I am committed to being the best possible husband and the man that God wants me to be. I believe that it is the power of prayer, faith and patience that has brought us to this point. I thank God for his loving kindness and forgiveness of our sins.

    Please praise and thank God with us for again answering our "Thank-You-God-in-advance-prayer" of yesterday about assisting my husband and his partner in their efforts to bring new income ideas to reality. Particularly for the woman so promptly answering my husband's e-amil about the right time to telephone her since she is away on business half way around the world. Thank You God that You will be guiding his discuss with her tonight and hopefully her reaction will be positive about they deserving the previously mentioned "finder's fee" as the work progesses on the project since the contract she received for her services my husband arranged for her to bid on. hank Also God thank you for helping me discover on line the deep massage possibility of this type of work helping heal a hiatal hernia that's climbed up where it doesn't belong in my diaphram and causing gut woes. And when I e-mail my motherapist about such a possibility, he and the doctor he works with researched this. I just received the treatment new treatment today and sense this is going to be a big healing help since I feel wonderful right now. Another incredible prayer extemely prompt prayer answer. Special thanks to all those who have been are are still praying with us about these matters! We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.
