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.

    I want to thank you for your prayers to my request at Thanksgiving in 2007. Our son was in jail for drug possession and needed to be saved. I asked for your prayers to turn his life around when he got out. As a result, he got assigned to the "God Pod" in jail and studied the bible, which he said he read 3 times. Since he got out, he has been going to Church regularly, praying at every opportunity, and helping other people. He has a great job and is very happy. I believe God truly performed a miracle on him and thank him every day for his answer to our prayers.

    I started building my dream home in 2004. After three weeks I discovered that my finances were drained and nothing was happening. I prayed that God would send me an honest person to do my work. It took seven years but it was worth the wait. After 4 weeks I can see my dream becoming a reality. I am so grateful. Thank you God and to the Guidepost family.

    I asked for help in prayer and it came through with flying colors. I was facing 33 months in prison because of past stupid mistakes. I went to court and they came up with a deal for me, 20 days in the county jail. Who could believe that I would get that kind of break in my life.

    I asked numerous Christians at church, on-line and at their churches to pray for car repairs I could afford and the Lord blessed me. I had prayed for an affordable, nice large rental home and again that prayer was championed. Thank you Dear Jesus. I need prayer about my marriage and family now. Please ask the Lord to help me with a very difficult situation where I am torn between my wife and my adult, difficult son.
