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.

    I was in need of some food and a beautiful gift bag of surprises was delivered to my door including a $100.00 gift certificate to Giant Eagle for groceries. Our electric was going to be shut off today and yesterday I was given a medical cerificate extension for a month to give me time to get assistance from community service.

    Thank you, Lord Jesus, for blessing me with a wonderful family and a happy daughter. Thank you for the good friends I have and for showing me who is not trustworthy.

    This morning I submitted a prayer about a financial concern of my son that was stressing me terribly. He wanted to borrow $1,000 to get something his wife wanted. Other times they have borrowed and not paid back, and also I felt they could save for it. He is usually very persistent in wanting to borrow money, so I was not looking forward to seeing him. He came over and said not to worry about it if I couldn't give it to him, he would just get her something else. This was an enormous relief! I have been thanking God ever since!

    For peace in my heart on a day that I was feeling very anxious and frustrated, God put a woman in my path who shared an amazing story of miraculous healing that gave me a strong sense of God's presence and peace. Hallejuah!
