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.

    Praise and THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful prayer warrior that sent me the most beautiful, meaningful prayer today. My eyes filled with tears as I read it, my heart was so lifted and thanks is not enough. I thank the Lord my God for answering this prayer request by giving me a job today, albeit, one that I will have to struggle with as it is very physical. I will lean into God's wisdom and love to do the best job I can for as long as I can and am so very grateful. Many kind thanks to all of you here and to the one who sent the very powerful and touching prayer to me. Blessings to you and all of you here for your love. May you all be blessed with the love of our dear Jesus Christ. Thank you again, so much.

    Thank you, loving God, for answering my prayers. Thank you for your grace and for knowing what I need not necessarily what I want. May you bless all that pray here...

    I thank you Lord for my son, Tyler's continued good health. I thank you for good blood test results and a good check up. Thank you for our jobs and my family and friends. Thank you for your provisions and for sending your only son so that I could be forgiven.

    I've asked for prayers for the last few days as I wasn't sure if there would be any money coming to us from my husband's business this month. Being self-employed, we never know for sure what extra there will be every month. Praise God that he was able to bring home a check yesterday that will cover most of our needs for the next couple of weeks.

    About two weeks ago my car stop working.I had it towed to the dealership and the diagnosis was engine problems.My extended warranty expired the weekend of Thanksgiving for major repair.So I was looking at a lot of money to repair my car that I did not have.I pray everyday throughout the day but I immediately began to pray on this situation and ask God to give me favor over the outcome.I spoke with corporate where I purchase the car and he asked what I could afford.I mention I would be thankful if they could pay 50% -90% of the repairs.Again, I did not have any additional money and I'll be losing my job later this year.So any amount would be appreciated.Within two hours I received a phone call from my service advisor and he mention he negotiated with corporate on my behalf to get them to pay for 99% percent of the repairs.The cost was $2500.00 corporate paid for $2400.00 and I was out of pocket only $100.00.Giving praises to God for being above and beyond ALL circumstances,situations and people.This was truly the work of God.I am grateful my service advisor and corporate were kind to me during this time.I just wanted to share my story with some one to be an inspiration.To trust God to take care of ALL your needs.Beyond Bless!
