OurPrayer
A Prayer Service of Guideposts

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, Dear God, for helping my mother get through her surgery, and for having a good recovery! Thank you for being with her before her surgery to bring her peace. This was such an amazing answered prayer as a doctor and nurse both said afterwards that most people don't survive the surgery that she had. What an awesome God we have!

    Earlier today I wrote and asked for prayers for my mom, who was having a surgery that the surgeon thought she might not make it through. She not only came through it but the doctor was amazed at how well she did. It is as close to a miracle as I've seen. She now has a day or two to recuperate before starting radiation for the tumors in her chest. I am so humbled by this whole experience. God is certainly with us answering our prayers.

    Thank you God. Thank all of you that pray here. I had requested prayer for my insurance premium issues. I just spoke with a rep and check has been processed and will clear well ahead of the 1/1 deadline. Thank you.

    Thank you all for your prayers. I prayed that I would hear from my son. I heard from his adoptive mom, and she let me know what is going on. Brian is in a hospital in Arizona in a mental health facility as he had run out of medication & had slipped into darkness. He is in a strange place & so far away from either family. I praise God that he is safe and being cared for. Thank you & God answers all prayer that we may proclaim His Goodness.

    Through OurPrayer God is comforting me at this difficult time in my life. He has also answered prayer by making it possible for a reconciliation with a former friend. I have longed for this for so many years, and I guess I didn't really believe it was possible. But God is good, and He has given me an early Christmas present. I love everything about Guideposts, and I want to thank you for being there for me.
