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 requested prayer in March 2011. The sores on my leg are healed. My son turned his life around and is working faithful in the Church. Still waiting on my job transfer, but I did get word that they are working on it. Thanks so much for your prayers.

    Please keep praying...but God is working. My husband has been waiting for eleven months for a disability hearing. I posted a prayer request yesterday (11-21-2011) and PRAISE GOD that a hearing date was set today. The hearing will be on January 9, 2012. Thank you all for your prayers. GOD IS SO AWESOME AND SO ARE HIS CHILDREN.

    Thank You, Heavenly Father, for the tough times we've had these past few months. I'm grateful that they bring me to rely on YOU, forcing me to work on strengthening my faith, reading your Word more. Thank You for your Holy Spirit's inspiration that "all that really matters is that I will live forever in Heaven with You". Puts earthly troubles into perspective! Thank You so much for providing what we need, food and shelter, and taking care of each "crisis" as it comes up. I'm learning patience. In Jesus' name, I praise You and thank You and worship You, my loving God, amen.

    Two years ago on Nov. 16, 2011 our Heavenly Father saved my twin brother's life. My brother had a heart attack. God is a miracle working God and I thank him so much for sparing my brother's life. He is back to work and is enjoying life. Please continue to lift him up in prayer. That God will continue to restore his health, take away all his stresses, bless him financially, his wife and children. For God's protection around him and his family. That his children will continue to do well in school. Thanks and God bless!

    I just wanted to say Thank you to the Lord and to all of those who prayed for me. Back in April 2010 I wrote a prayer here asking to win my two children in a custody battle against my ex who had cheated on me and left me with nothing, no job or anything. Well today, almost 2 years later I have just found out that I won full custody of my babies and not only that, the Lord blessed me back in April of 2011 with a very good steady job and I am still there and have had 2 raises and a promotion since that time and continue to rebuild my life! My children and I are no longer living in poverty and though the pain of my ex's absence and betrayal still hurts, it has dulled quite a bit and my children and I are doing just fine now. I owe all of this to God adn his wonderful blessings and the wonderful caring people out there who prayed for us. Thank you all and Thank you God Almighty!
