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.

    We have been praying for a pastor to marry our daughter. Today we went to our church we had not been to in a long time (moved from the state) but we were in town 4 generations worth and we saw friends and our pastor has passed away but his wife was still attending. She shared that their son had become a pastor alot like his dad who had married my husband and me. our daughter talked with him and he gave her his business card. She is talking with her finance and they will be meeting. How awesome second generation marries second generation. Thank you for the answer to our prayer.

    We are in serious financial straits, but Lord God I thank You and praise You for helping us pay most of our bills this month. In Jesus' name, and for you glory, amen.

    Dear Heavenly Father, we were able to successfully move my daughter to her new rented room, closer to the college she wants to attend. I thank You deeply, Father, for helping us accomplish this and for allaying her nervousness and fears about the new living situation. Please bless Debbie for renting her this room and being so considerate; bless Debbie's daughter for sweetly sharing the home with my daughter. Let your Holy Spirit fill these three women and guide them to do your will. In Jesus' name, I glorify and thank you Lord. Amen.

    Thank God and all who prayed for my family and me. We received the money we'd been waiting for! It was such a relief. We were dead broke. God sustained us and we are thankful. In Jesus' name. Amen. May God bless you and keep you fellow prayer warriors.

    Thank you almighty God for the miracles blessed upon me and my family. A fire almost took our home we prayed while waiting on the fire department. Although we lost my husbands business completely, we are alive and well except for a couple of mild burns to our arms. Thank you God for saving our lives.
