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.

    Several months ago I requested prayer that I would find work that allowed me to stay home and would be right for me. Thank you so much for your prayers..... a permanent position that is right for me opened up and I started three weeks ago. Your encouragement and prayers made such a difference, and I am deeply grateful to you and thankful to God.

    After returning to the States from the mission field in China I prayed that God would provide a house for my family. People in my small group Bible study laughed in disbelief because at that time the average price of a house where we lived was half a million dollars. We moved to a smaller city a year or two later and I inherited a house. Later, after my wife left me I prayed for friends and some quickly came into my life. I prayed the ants would leave my house, they did. I prayed a problem with my cheek would be healed. It was. Praise the Lord!!

Bless those on our prayer list, homeless, unemployeed, uninsured, suffering loss, facing danger, disaster, and bad weather, our public servants and service men. We ask in the name of Jesus, not our will, but Yours be done. Amen gcm

    I'd posted prayer requests a few times, and prayed often myself, for my daughter who had been smoking for several years. She had developed a condition that could lead to cancer and the cigarette smoking was making that chance much higher. Today she told me she quit "cold turkey" a few weeks ago. Thanks be to God! He is awesome.

    I thank you all for praying with me. I prayed for the return of my grandaughter Angel,who had runaway from home. She returned home THANK YOU JESUS. We are still praying that her attitude of defiance and disobedience changes, and that she makes better choices in life, but most of all that she allows Jesus to become a part of her life.

    I want to thank you all for your prayers on my behalf - the Lord heard us! Although my home sold at a foreclosure auction last week, the investors have decided to rent it to me so I get to stay!! And... they're even making upgrades to the house! Thank you Lord for all of your blesings.

    I had been praying about my new career in the music field which I stepped out with faith to pursue with no money, etc. My prayers have been answered my career is now going well and doors that I could not get into God has open for me. It has been a hard road but I stayed in pray and will continue to stay in pray, be humble and thankful and I know that things are on the way and God is opening all the doors. Amen
