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.

    My son is a recovered drug user and alcoholic. he is sober by the grace of God and his hard work. He has a good job and got promotions and raises. He is now moving from a nice, but run down starter apartment to a gorgeous condo that is even closer to his meetings. I know that without God healing and guiding and prospering him, that this would never be possible. All my prayers have been answered.

    Thanks to all of you who prayed on my behalf. My home was foreclosed on and I didn't know where I was going to live, or how I would afford a move. Thanks to your prayers (I am sure God heard you!) the new owner of my home has allowwed me to stay on and is renting the house to me! I have a three year lease and she is offering to make upgrades to the home which I was unable to afford. The Lord does indeed work in mysterious way.

    Prayers of thanks that my estranged spouse and I were able to talk and share our emotions in a constructive way the other night. May God's will be done in our marriage.

    Last week when I was feeling at my lowest regarding my lack of work, I received a call about a possible job interview; also I received thank you notes from 2 of my grandchildren; went on 2 great hikes during the week, and received UC papers in the mail. Praise God!
