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.

    My husband and I had been 2 1/2 months behind on our mortgage. I had been seeking employmet without sucess. My husband was blessed with overtime on his job for the whole month of November and we are now current on our mortgage. We only have to deal with some late fees and back escrow. We thank you all for your prayers. We would have never made it if it wasn't for the Lord blessing my husband with the overtime. Priase the Lord!! God is certainly good and worthy to be praised!

    Hello: I want to thank everyone for your prayers. I was out of work for about 3 weeks. I asked for your prayers to agree with me to get a job in the healthcare industry with good pay, benefits and permenant based on Matthew 18:19. Well the job came to me as a healthcare job workng in a hospital as an Executive Assistant with no benefits and not permemant. It is a temporary job covering for someone who is on maternity leave for a few months. Even though the job didn't come to me fully the way I needed it to come to me, I still feel it's a blessing because I was behind in my bills and the unemployment was not enough. I also feel this job is just a stepping stone to something greater for me. I am still pending for (2) other permenant fulltime jobs that I went on interviews. I have faith that I will get one of them. At least now my resume can be updated that I have a new job and it didn't take long. So once again thank you for your prayers this is a blessing to me.

    I am thanking God in advance for answering my prayer for the right husband for me finally, so that I may share a life with him. I believe God will send him to me, in a straight path and that all will be well. Thank you Lord for blessings and for being so good to me! Amen.

    I thank the Lord for hearing my prayers. My son's CAT scan was clear and his blood work good. His allergies seem better and he is doing wonderfully. Thank you, Lord for hearing me and answering me. Thank you for your grace and mercy. Thank you for forgiven sins as I am not perfect.
