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.

    My daughter lost her job earlier this year due to budget cuts. She had just started working toward her PhD. I prayed that God would lead her to the place she needed to be and that if possible she would still have her benefits from the previous job. After only a few short weeks she found a job at a university - teaching a few classes, working to help administer some grant monies, and even with the opportunity to take her own classes toward her PhD at a greatly reduced rate. God even saw fit to allow her to retain the benefits she had at the previous job. He is a wonderful God!

    Please praise and thank God for how accommodating and willing to deal the one principal is being during the negotiations now going on about my husband's and Bobby's project. We also thank God in advance for helping the other principal become more open to really trying to work out their differences. And we also thank you in advance God for guiding what Bobby imparts to both sides will be the most productive in moving these negotiations towards a finished fair deal in the next few days if this is Your will God. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    Thank You Lord for giving my body the ability to heal itself and for helping me through a very hard day yesterday with addiction cravings. I prayed for help and you have risen me above it.

    Thank you, Lord for hearing me and answering me. Thank you for renewed friendships. Thank you for healing my son. Thank you for my job and my husband's job. Please keep him in mind for something better as it is physically demanding on him. Thank you Lord for your provisions every day for my family and all of the blessings that you continually shower down upon us. Thank you for your, son, Jesus and the gift of salvation.
