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.

    Thank you Lord. Yesterday I had a swollen cheek from a bad tooth and no means to get medical help. I requested prayer for the situation from this site. This morning the swelling is completly gone. Thank you Lord for healing me. Thank you for all answered prayers and the ones we are still waiting an answer for. I love you Lord.

    PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW. Last December holiday, the Lord has manifested his goodness and blessing upon me and my family. My son and nephew were scheduled to attend a christian youth camp and me as a lecturer. I only have enough money for their registration and my fare to attend the camp. He provided for our fare going to the camp site and back. i was able to save my money for the fare. During the new year, the family celebrated being together in-spite of the lack of money to buy food. after church service in new years day, lots of food were packed and were given to us. I also has a problem with the fare of my nephew in going back to the university... again the Lord has provided for it. Am so thankful to the Lord for the opportunity of witnessing to the young people as well as the opportunity of receiving His blessing just in time. Amen

    God bless all! We are thankful to have a roof over our head, and food in our mouth. Thankful for loving family members and friends. And most of all...thankful that God gave his life so that we may have our life. In everything....we are truly blessed.

    Thank you, God, for all my many blessings. 2011 was a year of illness, recovery, rebuilding, and blessings. I praise you, Lord, for bestowing so many blessings on me and my family. Thank you for bringing me closer to my son. May the blessings of health and wealth continue into 2012. I praise your name!!

    I asked for prayers for my sick cat and he ended up having surgery, but he came through it o.k. And I am so grateful to God and everyone that prayed for him because he is the most loving creature I have ever known. Thank you for your prayers.

    Thank You, Heavenly Father, for stopping the gunman in Rainier National Park. I pray that You will have mercy on his troubled soul. Please bless the slain ranger's family, friends and coworkers with your peace that heals. In Jesus' name, I pray, amen.

    God is great! The communication opened up between my son and his Dad over the Christmas holiday. We were able to enjoy the true meaning of Christmas and being together. Thanks to all who prayed for them to connect as father and son.

    What an AWESOME WONDERFUL GOD we serve!!!! I had requested prayer a while ago about a financial matter that needed taken care of, we needed money to do a bankruptcy, due to some unfortunate business dealings that caused financial difficulties for the past 4 yrs trying to get out from under this was hard because I suffered a heart attack and had open heart surgery, which was serious in itself, then unable to work, so we only had one income, but the Lord provided our every need, our daily bread. But we struggled to try and save money, then this past year, a situation occurred which seemed, at the time like a bad thing, but the Lord turned it into a good thing, because we ended up with a settlement that enabled us to do the bankruptcy. And what a relief this has been to get that taken care of, I mean doing a bankruptcy doesn't sound like such a great thing to do, but in this particular situation and time of our life, we had no other choice. So we are grateful to get that behind us, and thank you for the prayers!!! God bless!!!
