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.

    Dear God, Thank you for the calls from my children; the hike on Friday; the interview appointment; the swim on Wednesday; and the church around the corner.

    thank you so much for praying for Caroll, no tornado hit her area last night or the night before. but there's still a 4/10 chance that it can happen tonight or in april or whenever, so please keep praying for her to be safe. It's so scary and i cannot imagine how it feels.

I will always be grateful to you and will spread to devotion to you. Be with us always so we may face our problems with courage and serenity."

    Thank you Father for your Grace and Favor in our lives. My daughter asked me what exactly meant Grace. I explained to her that Grace was obtaining the Favor of good and things going in our life in a way that only God could have done it and we did not have to work for it or do anything. We were worry because the air conditioning of my old car wasn't cooling and her car had a noise. We were afraid of high bills; but we went to the mechanic just to get the issues resolved. To our surprise we got everything fixed with less than $50 each, and the mechanic told us that our cars are old but in good shape. We were very happy and my daughter could not believe it. He turned to me and said Mom, I understand now what Grace is. Today was a day full of the Grace of God. Thank you Father for the way you are blessing our lives. I know that the results on her test is not going to be anything to worry about and everything is going to be fine. Bless my song and keep him safe during this winter and always. Thank you for your Amazing Grace and the Miracles you are doing in our lives. I trust Your ways and I love U. --Amen
