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.

    Dear Prayer Partners on Oct. 26, I submitted a request about a Christian Women's Conference that I was organizing and directing. God truly blessed. The keynote speaker came from out of town and was truly a blessing. Everything went well. Praise God and thank you for your payers.

    For 3 days straight I went to the prayer request page and submitted my prayer for our home to be sold. The first 2 days I submitted the prayer, I did not realize I had to place my email address on the second page. I found that part when I did my 3rd submission. Praise be to God as we received an offer on the house that very day! Of course, there was another day of counteroffers etc but finally reached an agreement on Saturday. Thank you to all those that prayed. What a wonderful answer to prayer!

    I am so thankful that God has answered the many prayers for my husband's health. Last year he was suffering from acute leukemia. This year he is in remission and enjoying his grandchildren and able to continue farming.

    Thank You Heavenly Father for hearing and answering all our prayers for Miles our precious 31/2 year old boy. Thank You for keeping them safe as they traveled to and from San Diego to see the specialists there, and we praise You God for the wonderful, blessed evaluation they gave Miles. You and You alone are the healer, Father. By Your stripes we are healed. Thank You God for healing Miles and meeting all his needs. We give You all the praise, honor and Glory in Jesus' Holy name. Thank You Father for all those who prayed for Miles. We bless them in the name of Jesus and pray for all their needs to be met.

    I have been praying and asking for prayers for a job for many months. Some job opportunities fell through, some I turned down because they didn't feel right and I wanted to trust the Lord for the right job. Then I got a call the other day from a friend saying she was offered another position in her hometown and she wanted to recommend me for her job. I prayed again, asked you guys to pray and then went to the interview. The interview was the best I had ever had, it was a perfect fit and even better than what I had imagined. God is wonderful! He cares about all the details of our life and we are so safe in Him. Praise God!! Thank you all for lifting my needs up in prayer.
