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 have been going through some extremely difficult times ... and even felt God wasn't hearing my prayers. Yesterday I was driving and prayed, "Dear God, please give me some assurance that I am Your Child and You are hearing my prayers." Just then I passed a church and the marqee flashed, "Be still and know that I am God!" Thank You, God, for the assurance that you know just where I am and what I need.

    Thank you for praying for my husband to find his lost hearing aid. Truly God is an awesome God!!! He lost it on a car trip to his older sisters house, but didn't realize it was gone (he had removed it from his ear because the battery had gone dead)until he arrived several hours later. On the way down he had stopped at an abandened gas station to stretch his legs. Unbeknownst to him, the hearing aid fell out. On the way home four days later, something (God) told him to stop there again. He recognized the spot he had stopped before (a white plastic bottle & other trash). He looked down - & there was his hearing aid. Truly amazing. In all that huge parking area, there it was. Thank you Father!!! We are waitinbg now to see if it can be repaired. Pray that it can. Thank you Jesus for your goodness.

    I recently moved from - CA to -, NV. When I moved, I knew of two people who I could contact for friendship. I contacted them and we interfaced once. Since then, I haven't seen or heard much from them. I've been here for about 1 month now. I started feeling lonely so I prayed for God to introduce me to new friends. I recently met two other females who have been friendly to me. I want to thank God for providing me those friends as well as any future friends He will introduce me to via my church.

    I was told that my baby had a 1/5 chance of having Trisomy 18 at birth. My doctor would not let me be happy about my pregnancy. She would not stop harassing me to get a amnio. I refused over and over and over again because there is a 1/100-300 chance it will cause a miscairrage. At the very end of my pregnancy I switched to a midwife, Linda -, at -. She took very good care of me and my baby. My baby girl was born WITHOUT trisomy 18 and she is perfectly healthy! She is asleep next to me right now. Thank you for praying for my baby and the strength to keep saying no to an amnio even though I didn't know if she would die at birth until the day she was born. It was worth saying NO and trusting God.

    After 4 years of no work, the Lord has graciously cracked a door open for me. I have been hired on a temporary basis at a department store for the holidays----praise His Holy Name! Thank you for the prayer support.

    Thank you for praying for us. Just as when we needed the help most, GOD answers our prayers!.. We were in deep debt before and God was able to provide money to pay off our debts, the buyer of our lot was able to pay almost half of the full price. Now we are just waiting for the filing and approval of transfer documents , once completed we will be able to receive the full payment just as I prayed . Every step of the way I encountered obstacles but lo and behold! Everything went well! Seems the Lord touches the hearts and minds of the people I meet during the course of following up the documens for transfer and even the following up of the documents for my brother's housing loan was doing well. PRAISE THE LORD!

    I prayed for a hedge of protection for my husband on a trip he took without me. The restaurant where he flirted with young 20 something, scantily clad waitresses has banned him from coming back. this is a direct answer to prayer and we are still working on our marriage. Continue to pray for us.
