A Prayer Service of Guideposts

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.

    Thanks to all of you at Guideposts who prayed for both of my daughters--one to find a job and the other to get a better job. Praise God, both prayers have been answered. The younger daughter is teaching at a small Christian school and the oldest will be a tax auditor with the D. of R.. Prayers do work. God bless you and keep praying!

    Thank You Lord for answering all our prayers, long before we acknowlege your loving care, for knowing our hearts, for bringing family home safely and all the comfort that brings, for easing our fear and afflictions, for being everfaithful even when we are not, for understanding our stress and anger when we feel imprisoned by it... for miracles yet to come and flowers yet to bloom. Thank You, thank you, thank you. And especially for prayers of petition for justice and deliverance from predators of so many innocent victims. Your presence is becoming known in a needed, appreciated, greater way. Praise be to You alone for that. Thank you also for renewing your call for repentance and opportunities for forgiveness for those same people twisted and tortured by their own evil desires. You alone can calm the storms. True faith can make anyone whole again. God is great.

    Thank you to all who prayed for travel mercies for all those who traveled over the long Thanksgiving weekend. I had requested prayers for all travelers and for my daughter Marjie who traveled 700 miles from school home for the long weekend. She and her fellow passengers had safe flights and she is safely back to school. Thanks so much again for all of your prayers, God Bless.
