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.

    2011 was a painful challenging year for me. Many times I thought I couldn't go on. Depressed, anxious, feeling abandoned and unloved. I had no where to turn but to prayer. While many of the painful issues still exist, I thank God for hearing my cry and bringing me through. Please continue to pray that God heals my body, heart and emotions and that He retores, renews and grows my relationship and blesses me with the miracle of Love and a Christ centered marriage. Thank you Father for btinging me through. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

    I came to you in November/2011 seeking someone to pray with me, not just for me. At the time my unemployment was less than $100.00 per week. I didn't know how I would make it. It took all 4 checks just to pay the mortgage, nothing else. I had been searching for steady employment for 7 months with no success. I wanted to cry so badly, but God is so good he wouldn’t allow me to wallow in self petty. I requested prayer that weekend, Monday Morning in less than 2 hours I had went over my minutes. I was flooded with job offers and interviews; via phone and emails. I accepted a phone interview that afternoon and I am proud to say, I am now in my 7th week of employment, but job offers are still coming in. I am so grateful to being going through the New Year with a job. Thank you Jesus!

    Thanks to God and thanks for everyone's prayers for my foot surgery that I had in June 2011. The operation was a success! My goal was to have pain that I could at least manage...well I am now totally pain free! I can even wear four inch stilletos. I have a new lease on life and feel like a kid again. One wonderful volunteer prayed that the surgeon's hands would become God's hands, and I think that is exactly what happened, because I think the surgery even surpassed my fabulous surgeon's expectations! Praise be to God who saw me through such a painful year, a very blessed recovery, and is still by my side right now. God bless everyone! In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

    Earlier today, New Year's Eve, I submitted a prayer on behalf of my dear friend Mark -. He is is an skilled nursing facility being overly medicated. I am a thousand miles away and unable to help in any other way but prayer. At 2:54 pm today he was able to call me. He recognized my voice. He could not speak very well. But this deliberate action is such a postive thing. He needs to get his voice back first so he can participate in the decisions of his life, some of which will affect my life as well. Praise to the Living God who moves the sun and all its stars. I choose to take this seemingly small sign as one of great hope. We need much help. We need much encouragement.
