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 have been praying for over two year that God would restore hearing to both of my ears. While God has not yet fulfilled this prayer He did put me in touch with an agency that paid the balance of my new hearing aids. I picked up my new hearing aids on Dec. 28, 2011. They work great! I will continue to pray for the manifestation of my healed ears so that I can hear without wearing hearing aids. Thank you to everyone that prayed for me. Thank you God for providing a temporary solution until I receive the manifestation of your healing of my ears.

    I thank God that my mammogram came back normal. I've been going back and forth for Utra sounds this whole year. Then I had my yearly mammogram and it came out normal so I do not need anymore Ultra sounds! God is the great physician. He is so good and it pays to serve Him! Jesus is awesome!

    A few hours ago today, I submitted a request for a pregnant stray dog my friend & I found the other night but are unable to adopt ourselves. After I submitted my request, my friend went to the best no-kill shelter in the area that had rebuffed us twice yesterday. They agreed to bend the rules and skip the waiting list for this dear creature, and are taking her in. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!

    Please praise and thank God with us for answering the "crisis" prayer we posted late Wednesday night when our daughter's turbulent return flight retriggered her 9/11 caused Post Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms, and she freaked out in the airport after the bumpy landing. Because her boyfriend's reactions -- who was meeting her -- often make things worse, she ended up in her car alone and got very lost trying to find her house from this different airport. Only to arrive and discover only he had the keys to get in her place, however on our advice had gone to his office for the night a 90 minute commute away because their fighting might end up in violence and she therefore needs to avoid being with him when she's that upset. It was a long scary and worrisome night for all of us, God, but as always You answered our prayers to protect our daughter from harming herself or anyone else as well as You protected her from also having an alcoholic "slip" and drink. And we thank You God for helping her finally yesterday be able to have a day of healing sleep that only You can provide. We are so grateful that this site is 24/7 and know that when we post a prayer request in the wee hours of the morning that someone somewhere in the world will see it and join us in prayer. We ask God's special blessings for all those who keep praying with us for our daughter's many healing and protection prayer needs. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    I requested prayers on 12-12-11 for an Appeal hearing with the Oregon Employment Department Judicial Judge. I was let go from my job after 14 years of dedication and denied benefits due to statements from a new Manager of just 5 months that did not like me. I thank you for the prayers. The good news is that the Judicial Judge saw through the new Manager who let me go without real reason and granted me my benefits. I am 59 years old, have worked since I was 12 years old without ever losing a job. It was like a bad divorce. I loved my job and the Elderly Resident's that I oversaw as the Director. Now that I am allowed unemployment benefits, I can go on to the new chapter in my life and hopefully find work that I love and get my self esteem back. Thank you, Thank you.
