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.

    In November 2011 I requested prayers for our granddaughter and her husband who had been desperately trying to have a baby. I sent her the story "Family Blessing" in the What Prayer Can Do section of the November Guideposts and told her I had sent in a request and would be praying every day. Two days ago we received the wonderful news that they are expecting their first baby. Thank you for your prayers. GOD IS GOOD! I am a happy Great Grandma (to be).

    Please praise and thank God with us that our daughter was finally help to stop her hormonal imbalance caused induced telephone tirade at her father today, and how God will help us all to have a restorative night's rest. We thank You God in advance for helping soften the fallout of her meltdown and lessen her fear of what she said or did so she won't stay housebound and scared to answer her phone so her doctor can reach her and reassure her about her medication. Thank You God that somehow with Your help there are solutions to cure what all causes how yesterday we were able to have a wonderful Valentine's Day telephone conversation yet today she could not stop raging at her father although he'd accomplished what she'd asked because of how a sudden hormonal imbalance can steal our true daughter. We are so grateful for the prayer warriors who surround her and us with prayer week after week as God guides us to the next right treatment for our daughter's many health and well-being needs and provides the extra income to pay for her "cure". We thank, just as we ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    Praise the Lord!!! My prayer has been answered. Both dogs that I asked to be prayed for, so they would not be put to sleep were answered. Naomi was adopted and Axl was rescued. Thank you so much Lord Jesus for answering my prayer and showing that you love your animals. Thank you for showing no matter how small, you care about me and your creations. All praise and glory to You Lord!!

    Heavenly Father, I praise You and thank You for keeping our family safe, for keeping my old car running so that I can do home care work, for providing what we need each day. The other day I was driving to a client's house and singing to You and thinking of You, and You filled my heart with such overpowering gratefulness that I cried most of the way down the freeway. Thank You for the JOY you put in my heart! In Jesus' name, amen.
