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 just want to say "Thank you" for praying for me and my foreclosure situation. The company contacted me today to postpone the sale as we try to work this out. Praise God! This is just before the holidays so I appreciate all you do and prayers from the prayer warriors. I am so very thankful! God Bless you all!!!!

    Acouple of weeks ago I asked for prayers for my son Adam. He was one piece of document for getting his ID. But unfortunately, his ID was stolen, I mean birth certificate ss number, other documents. His getting this one piece of document for ID and he has to start all over again. So all is not lost. I thank you for your prayers for him, because at least, he will have that one piece of ID to start with.

    Dear Lord, sometimes I encounter hostile, mean people, but thank You for giving me a circle of friends to counterbalance this.

    I requested a prayer for fiances about two months ago. That prayer was answered. A miracle occurred: we had a piece of property for sale, within days we had a contract on the house. This was a miracle for there were three others houses in the same neighborhood that the buyer could have purchased at less the price or gotten more house for the money; but God guided her to our property. We have now been to settlement and have paid off three outstanding bills, plus lowered some others to put us in a more comfortable mode. Thanks for you prayers and God's answer.

    In June I asked for prayers. I had ovarian cancer. I just want to thank you for your prayers and thank God, Sacred Heart of Jesus, St Jude, St Anthony, St Peregrine and all the Angels and Saints. I am now cancer free.
