OurPrayer
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.

    Thank you God. Thank all of you that pray here. I had requested prayer for my insurance premium issues. I just spoke with a rep and check has been processed and will clear well ahead of the 1/1 deadline. Thank you.

    Thank you all for your prayers. I prayed that I would hear from my son. I heard from his adoptive mom, and she let me know what is going on. Brian is in a hospital in Arizona in a mental health facility as he had run out of medication & had slipped into darkness. He is in a strange place & so far away from either family. I praise God that he is safe and being cared for. Thank you & God answers all prayer that we may proclaim His Goodness.

    Through OurPrayer God is comforting me at this difficult time in my life. He has also answered prayer by making it possible for a reconciliation with a former friend. I have longed for this for so many years, and I guess I didn't really believe it was possible. But God is good, and He has given me an early Christmas present. I love everything about Guideposts, and I want to thank you for being there for me.

    I asked for prayer for my son earlier this week. He has already had two back surgeries. I asked you all to help me pray, he had an MRI and got the results this morning and everything was very good, Thank God and thank everyone for all your prayers.

    I requested prayers for my husband who was in the ICU unit suffering from COPD, 2 heart attacks, plus numerous other conditions. I prayed if his departure time had arrived that God would allow him to come home to the farm he loved first. Against all odds, God answered my prayer. We were able to spend 45 days together until God called him home. We were married 53 years. Thanks to everyone for your prayers. It meant the world to both of us. Thanks be to God!

    Thank you Lord for being able to take care of an unexpected problem in our life. I ask for prayer for my husband to remain calm in all situations for he is easily agitated when things go wrong. Praise the Lord for blessing us all!!!

    "God, thank you for all the grace and favors which you have given me through the prayers of your Apostle, Jude Thaddeus. St. Jude, I thank you for your intercession in response to my prayers. I will always be grateful to you and will spread to devotion to you. Be with us always so we may face our problems with courage and serenity."
