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 for praying that Mark would get a job so he wouldn't be put out of the shelter he's staying at. Today he was hired where he wanted to work. Praise God!!! He is absolutely thrilled beyond words.

    I want to thank you for your prayers for my mother. She had to have surgery for colon cancer. It went very well. They removed the tumor and it had not spread. She is doing great. Thanks for the prayers and thank God for his blessing.

    I passed the CPA exam after fourteen months of studying and two failed exams (there are four exams in all). If it were not for the prayers from people on this website, and especially the phone prayer line, I know I wouldn't have passed. I thank God for helping me to pass the exam.

    As a young woman in my 20's I suffered from severe debilitating depression. Since it was the early 80's no one knew what it was & if they knew someone with it, it was hidden & not talked about. In those days there was no internet & no OurPrayer to contact for help. I went to many doctors & tried many medications with no good results. Even had our pastor come to our home. I was having a very difficult time & it took almost everything I had to have a minister come into our home & tell what was happening to me. Even though I was scared, because he was a minister I had so much hope.. surely he spoke with others who had what I had. To our disappointment he acted as though he had never heard of what we were talking about. In his business he had not run across anyone who was more than just a little unhappy? But once again it was hidden & not spoken of. Even had a doctor tell me to not tell anyone about my condition, others would treat me differently. I remember the day my shy, unworldly mom called Dr. Peals' prayer line. What a selfless act of love for her to put aside her fears & do this for me. I can still see her on the phone with her head bent in prayer praying with another person. I was not cured that day or many years later. After much prayer & a lot of support from my husband, family & friends we was able to find a team of doctors who really cared & didn't give up on me. I was diagnosed & properly treated for depression. My husband, kids, family & friends all suffered with me through this depression. It tries to take not only the victim but also every connected heart in it's path. I am 53 & have been depression free for 17yrs! Praise God! My husband & I have been married for 30yrs, have 2 wonderful sons 24 & 20 who are good, caring adults. We just celebrated my mom's 92nd birthday! "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Phillipians 4:13 Words I lived by & continue to live by. God Bless all the prayer warriors of the world who are committed to helping others & take their time to pray for people like me.
