OurPrayer
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.

    Thank you for praying for me. I thank God for his kindness in answering my prayers... A few days back I had requested prayers because I was scared--going to have my first physical since my husband died three years ago. I am a widow with no children, no immediate family. Got the lab reports and everything is normal. Will see the doctor next week for the rest of the exam. I'm still praying all is normal.

Please continue to pray that God clean up everything in me not pleasing to Him, increases my faith, restores, renews and grows my relationship to L, grants me favor and blesses us with a Christ centered marriage. I ask God to meet your needs and bless you with your hearts' desires. In Jesus' name. Amen.

    I requested prayers for a legal matter that I was facing Tuesday November 29. I requested a prayer from Guideposts. The Lord lead me to an attorney and everything tuned out fine. I would like to thank everyone for their prayers and the good Lord for making it happen. Thank you and God bless everyone

    I put out a request asking for prayer in finding my lost bird. Within an hour, I found him! I had been looking in the same places for almost 24 hours and suddenly there he was! I have to take this opportunity to praise God for his blessing and to give Him all the Glory for bringing Ziggy home. God bless all of you who prayed for my little guy. It was only through the awesome power of prayer and God's abundant mercy that brought this miracle to pass.
