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 did not have the November rent. I submitted my prayer here and on another prayer website. By the Grace of God and the power of prayer, a local parish outreach program paid the November rent. Thank you to all for your prayer and support. As always Thank you to God to for loving us and protecting and providing for my family. Thank you.

    "God, thank you for all the grace and favors which you have given me through the prayers of your Apostle, Jude Thaddeus. St. Jude, I thank you for your intercession in response to my prayers. I will always be grateful to you and will spread to devotion to you. Be with us always so we may face our problems with courage and serenity."

    Our God is so good. Yesterday (Thanksgiving) was such a wonderful day with family and friends. God had just the day before answered our prayer regarding my sons home. Thank you Jesus for the mercy you showed. This just makes me more and more prayerful for each one of you that have needs in your life. Just be faithful that God is leading you where He wants you to go and above all trust Him and He will help you. Things looked hopeless for my son but at the very last minute the situation turned around and now my son and his family will still own their home that's been in our family for 35 years. I can't promise that every one of your situations will turn out this way but just know that God is good and merciful and also that I will be praying for each and every one of you every day that you will receive your needs. Thank you all so much for the prayers for my son. God Bless you all.

    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!!
