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 for your prayers, enough money came in to pay my bills with just hours to spare, my daughter is doing better with her anxiety and depression and my teenage son has been respectful all week! In other areas I have hope...We have many blessings every day because of Him! Blessings to all you who pray for others on this site... I pray for all of you that you receive your protection, guidance and blessings as well!

    update and thank you: a few weeks ago, i wrote asking for help for a situation--as well for specific animals, and humans, affected by that situation. a local animal control officer was dying a slow and painful death. no one knew what would happen to his animals he had rescued and welcomed in.there was much tension in the household, and the dogs and several cats were feeling it. a few of us began walking the dogs every day to help them relieve tension and release energy. the ACO's wife is eighty and feisty, but she was physically unable to join in. i made a video of the animals, ----many of the cats were adopted. there have been rough bumps in the road. it's also true that all along i've felt we were all being watched over. thank you for your prayers, which i know made this so.

    My mother needed help with finances to keep her in personal care home. God guided me through the agencies to help her. Today He answered prayer, she got an SSI payment to keep her at the home. Praise God! I was but a tool in His hands, He deserves the honor and prasie for His unlimited provisions!

    Last year sometime in May to June I submitted a prayer request for a more permanent Job -- Your faith saints prayed over it. I'm glad to inform you that my prayer has been answered. I'm now working for Swedish organisation for a more permanent (over 2 years consultancy) position with chances of going up to 5years.Though the conditions are yet to be reviewed to me for this year onwards I believe God has rewarded me increasing, abundantly and above all I can imagine. I'm now able to pay the debt on schedule and feed my family aswell as contribute to the mercy ministry at our local church and Tithe.I bless God for all this and the your team for the prayers.....May our good Lord continue using you in his kingdom.
