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.

    the lord is amazing!!! for the thanksgiving day of prayer, i sent several prayer requests. one was for my dear friend brenda who recently received disability. she was worried about christmas dinner, and toys for the grandchildren. i told her tha i would take her shopping and pick up the tab. well, she was too proud to take it. anyway, she received some back disablity pay, and now will be able to provide christmas dinner for her family and buy a few gifts. God knows what is in our heart before we even ask it. Thank you and God bless you all!!!! Happy Thanksgiving from Canada

    Thank You, Holy Lord, for the beautiful gift of new life. Our grandson was born Monday morning, C-section, and he is PERFECT! You are so good, Lord! Please continue to bless his family, and heal his mom. You know the other needs in his family. I trust You, Lord, to take care of each of these - in Your perfect timing, and in Your perfect way. I praise Your Holy Name, Thank You, Jesus! Amen.

    Hello prayers, I think i have not done any thing well in my life. People love me but my lack of good attitude, lack of confidence, lack of conman scene lands me in frustration, stress and irresponsible. I am completely depressed right now, because of my own guild and regrets for mistakes I done . I am feeling like i am an evil for my family. I have destroy my family. I completed my master from Norway. My supervisor was helping me in finding a job but i was so under confident that i chose to do a another semester than job. But second time also my attitude towards people and new supervisors landed me in unemployment and stress. Now my husband wants me to carry on the volunteer work in the same lab but i do not feel in ease to work there. The working environment become diffiecult for me. My ego, my lack of confidence and i think above all lack of goal in the life made me good for nothing. I want to pray GOD, if he is seeing me from heaven..i need your help to save my mental peace and my poor financial condition. Give me direction in the life. Please pray for me, please to help me and finding a suitable job. regards pallavi

    Thank you Lord that my Son had his first good nights sleep after I requested a prayer for him to be helped with selling his home. He still needs to sell his home but he knows it is in the Lord's hands now, as is everything...Thank you...
