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.

    After weeks of tension and strife between my sister and I, the Lord has made our relationship stronger and better. My sister is my best friend and it was a difficult time for us, but I'm so grateful that we were able to work things out! Thank you Lord. I know you are working out my relationship with G as well.

    I asked for prayer for our bank to accept us for a loan modification. It was a difficult 4 months of submitting paperwork after paperwork after paperwork. Because of an injury, I had to retire early with only a small pension and no more medical insurance - so this has been a very trying time. Praise God, we did get a loan modification! Our house payment is now half of what we were paying! Thank you so much for your blessed ministry.

    I requested prayer for my Fiancee - Wayne. That he be healed & that he become closer to God. He has a wonderful medical team helping him in his healing process. He knows that prayer is the reason for this. Thank You for your prayers!

    Thank you Father for relieving the overwhelming depression, anxiety and lonliness this morning. Thank you for your tender mercy and grace and for a good start for a God sent day. Please continue to pray for me as I will for you. I'm seeking God's will and praying for the desires of my heart. He said we could. I'm asking in faith. Please agree with me. In Jesus' name. Amen.

    Last week, I sent in a prayer request for my son, John B., who had a court case hearing last Thursday. I just want to let you know that the case hearing went well for John and would like to thank you for your prayers on his behalf ! I also asked for prayers on John B.'s behalf that he would get a steady job doing something that he likes and is good at. He is putting in more applications - so if you could continue in your prayers for him in regard to this, that would be great !

    Last year I sent in a prayer request for my grandmother, Nora, whose daughter had suddenly cut off their relationship. I'm happy to say they have their relationship back now, thanks to your prayers. Thank you so much!

    "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."

    Thank you Lord for allowing us to pray every day without fear. I pray for those who cannot pray openly but must do so in secret. Please be with them and keep them safe. Jean
