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 am a senior in college about to graduate and have been very worried and stressed over finding a job. I prayed every night for several weeks for God to open the door for me to find the right job. I recieved word of a day care that is hiring and went by and spoke with them, thinking that there is no way they could hire me even part time due to my difficult class schedule, it turns out that my schedule fit perfectly in and i start next week. The best part is I will be able to start working full time the week i graduate from college and stay throughout the summer. Its not what i want to do forever, but i know God opened that up to me for a reason. Also when i quit my current job my boss was so understanding & supportive (which i prayed for too!) So God is good and he does answer prayers!

    I was being overwhelmed with debts, so many people calling me for money that I could not afford to give, I submitted a prayer request to obtain more work hours, and my prayer has been answered. I even specified to obtain work hours that would be convenient for my school schedule, and it was answered. I have been working for a month now. I believe that all my other submitted requests will soon be answered too.

    Thank you so much for this touching and meaningful prayer. I have printed it off so I can look and read it daily. I have also sent this to my son so he can feel Gods presence right now as he is having a very stressful week at school and preparing for his national meet next week. I know that once he reads this email he will relax knowing this is all in GODS HANDS. THANK YOU JESUS. Just wanted you to know that I appreciate your prayer. I am starting to feel better so please keep the prayers coming, as well as keep praying for my son. He is really stressed right now and needs to feel Gods presence life right now. He is trying to get all his homework done before he leaves next Tuesday for Oklahoma and his national meet. Thank you ever so much for your prayers. BLessings to you all. sue -
