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 for praying for Tony and I. I was able to see him tonight. We had a wonderful date. He's opening up to me more.

    Praise and thanks to our Heavenly Father and our Lord Jesus Christ for saving me, a sinner, and keeping me growing in the Word over the years. Recently I have been discouraged, but the Lord showed me I needed to seek His wisdom more often. Reading my Bibles and devotionals more has helped to ease my worries and given me hope again. He has had others start up conversations with me about Him and that has really brought me joy. Thank You, Father, for being so loving and caring about me, even though I have so far to grow. In Jesus' name, I praise You, amen.

    Thank you for being there for me Lord. You're amazing! I can't imagine my life without you. I'd be such a wreck without you. Thank you for claiming me and loving me as I am. I love you!

    I requested prayer for my son who was losing his job because the company had to have a reduction in force. Three days later he got a call from three other companies that he had contacted and is going to go to work on Monday. Praise God ! He always listens to your prayers and I cannot praise him enough.

    This past week, amongst other requests, I had requested prayer for my friend Terry, who was to be set in the street Sat morning, unable also to find work. Its hard this time of year in Myrtle Beach to find anything. Well she received a call Friday Night letting her know that she could stay, until Monday, and she got a job starting on Monday. I just wish to thank the Master for meeting my friends dire need, and to thank all those here at Our Prayer for interceding with me for her. Praise the Lord. Thank You.
