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 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.

    Several years ago I asked for prayers for my husband. He was going through treatment for Hep C. for the second time. I sent in several requests that the treatment would work this time. Thank the Lord it did!!

    Please praise and thank God in advance for His protection and guidance to help our family have both a "good" weekend and week to come. Especial thanks God for how You will assist our daughter in establishing a better reminder method to start taking her progesterone 14 days befoe her period is scheduled that will keep her from having such awful freakouts and/or alcoholic relapses during her 10 "bad" hormonally altered days. We aslo thank you God for continuing to protect Bobby's and my husband's interests in the project deal just signed, and that they be paid "fairly" and as soon as You know would be the best time for them to received these funds. Please help Bobby not to get too greedy about what expenses he thinks he should be repaid him from the partner's share since to go after this project was his idea and therefore he was then willing at the start to invest funds that might never have resulted in a deal. God thank you in advance for helping me to catch up on my long postoned to-do list as well as advance my book editing even more than usual by including the new ideas You've brought to my mind. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.
