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.

    Please praise and thank God with us for how we were guided many years ago to buy an annunity because last night nearing this year's end I worked on our budget needs for 2012. And the quarterly annunity payout we'll be receiving will make the difference between having to diminish our retirement funds to cover our needs for the rest of our lives and probably be able to have the funds earn enough oveer the annunity we'll be reciving -- even in this terrible economic times -- to cover not only our expenses but continue to help our daughter until God and God's professional healing human angels heals her so she can finally work again. Once again I am awed by how having an all knowing God caring for us 24/7 means what we our needs are met long before we even know what we'll need to pray about to solve not only our financial but all other problems...if we'll only do our part when God nudges us to follow through on God "guidance". Thanks to one of Dr. Peale's books I read in the 1960s, I started studying how to not only turn things over to God and leave problems in God's hands but also learn how to discern what was his guidance about what I'd asked help with. So Dr. Peale's Guidepost by mail and -- now this online ministry -- has been helping our family with endless problems as well as keeping us positive no matter what...in the knowledge that God is always on duty and in charge...even when we forget or don't know what to ask for. There are not words God to thank You enough or all the people who have prayed for us starting in the 1960s when I had to snail mail my prayer requests to Guidepost prayer ministry. We thank and praise God, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    For a number of years, my son was addicted to pain pills. He lost his job, accumulated debts, and nearly died. He was arrested and put in jail for nearly 3 months. That was God's answer to our prayers. Tim has been clean and sober since August and is beginning a new job next week. He is dating is ex-wife and everyone sees the change. Thank God for answered prayers.

    I have been praying for over two year that God would restore hearing to both of my ears. While God has not yet fulfilled this prayer He did put me in touch with an agency that paid the balance of my new hearing aids. I picked up my new hearing aids on Dec. 28, 2011. They work great! I will continue to pray for the manifestation of my healed ears so that I can hear without wearing hearing aids. Thank you to everyone that prayed for me. Thank you God for providing a temporary solution until I receive the manifestation of your healing of my ears.

    I thank God that my mammogram came back normal. I've been going back and forth for Utra sounds this whole year. Then I had my yearly mammogram and it came out normal so I do not need anymore Ultra sounds! God is the great physician. He is so good and it pays to serve Him! Jesus is awesome!
