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 Lord, for hearing my prayer. My husband has been delivered home safely from his business trip. It went well, and he made it home before the blizzard hit. Thank you Lord also, for my son getting his new place to live and handling all the stress of coming up with deposits and bills without his relapsing to using alcohol. Thank you Lord for blessing me with a wonderful family, a warm house to live in and your love.

    When I had a job,I use to look at the prayer requests.So many of them were crying out for GOD to answer their prayers for financial help.My heart hurt for them,they wEre so desperate.Now I find myself in the same boat. Oh how it hurts.Everyone said it would come[the rescue]and I would kniow it was only God who provided the answer .Today I was so down .I thought if I could end it I would.Jesus thank you that you keep me going each day.Today. later.. I got my brake thru.I have to stop focusing on my fears and know HE has it all under control.

    I submitted a prayer request regarding my need for a dependable vehicle and for my health and the well being of my family as I will soon be having hip replacement revision surgery. My 27-year- old vehicle had nearly zero braking power and a host of other mechanical problems. My prayer was answered over and above what I really deserve, I was blessed with a vehicle in nearly perfect condition, with 40,000 miles on it. As for my health and my family, the surgeon and his team are believers and that means a lot. Throughout the entire time following my request for prayer, The Lord has continually placed people in my path that have reassured me and recharged my faith.

    This may seem small but in my eyes nothing God does is small. My daughter lost her phone outside while playing with her brother. She realized it was gone after it was already dark. It had also started raining(water is never good for a phone). I prayed that night that it would be found. My wife when looking for it the next morning prayed that God would guide her to it. Sure enough, she found it and it was sitting on the ground in such a way where it did not get wet. Phone was in working order. All the Glory to God.

    I was stressed and not paying attention when I unloaded my groceries out of the cart........I left my wallet with over $1200 cash and a check for $340 made out to me. I didnt realize my mistake until 24 hours later. I called the store and nothing had been turned in. I prayed and got two people to agree in prayer that my wallet would be returned IN TACT. I went to bed that night with peace in my spirit but my head telling me I should have a stomach ache, headache and not be able to sleep. I awoke the next morning to the sound of the phone. The beautiful voice told me that the store had my wallet and she verified the cash amount STILL PRESENT in the wallet!!!!Nothing was taken! I glorify God and HIS MAJESTY and His goodness! He truly watches over His children.

    I would like to pass along the gratitude of my family for the answered prayer for my daughter Emily pertaining to her legal battle. I requested prayer on January 17th as we had a court date on the 18th. I am very grateful that her case will be closed amicably and it looks like her record will be cleared. “ If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to your mountain, "MOVE!" and it WILL move... and NOTHING will be impossible for YOU! “ - Matthew 17:20
