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 your prayers for all of the Thanksgiving travelers. Our daughter Marjie moved 700 miles away from our home for school/work back in July. she came home for Thanksgiving flying on Wednesday when the weather here on the East Coast was terrible. I asked for prayers for all of the travlers that day and for the Thanksgiving weekend and my prayers were answered. Marjie's flight was delayed but because of the delay, the weather cleared nicely for her landing and all was well with her flight. I thank you so much for your prayers and ask that you continue to pray this weekend as family and friends return home and that all of their travels will be safe and they will be protected. Thanks so much again, God Bless you.

    Thank you Lord for seeing my through my last FAU class in EPT-11. Effective Teaching Practices 11. It was a challenge for me and I'm thankful for getting an "A!" Thank you Lord for ALWAYS being faithful and sending help when I need it and giving me the strength to see me through. My teacher was not very helpful as far as what I needed and took off work and left me hanging. In the end, God used my visit as a spiritual visit. My teacher wanted to know what "born again" meant and I explained my testimony and when I was "born again" and what it means...as best I could explain it to her. I'm thankful we left on very good terms. I know God used this experience to help us both grow even though we both are at different places in our spiritual lives. So, it was very exciting! Thank you Lord for that opportunity!

    My answered prayer is that I thought I might be alone for Thanksgiving dinner. I got together with five friends and we went out to the Center for dinner. It was great and great fellowship!!! Praise be to God!!

    the lord is amazing!!! for the thanksgiving day of prayer, i sent several prayer requests. one was for my dear friend brenda who recently received disability. she was worried about christmas dinner, and toys for the grandchildren. i told her tha i would take her shopping and pick up the tab. well, she was too proud to take it. anyway, she received some back disablity pay, and now will be able to provide christmas dinner for her family and buy a few gifts. God knows what is in our heart before we even ask it. Thank you and God bless you all!!!! Happy Thanksgiving from Canada
