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.

    I submitted a prayer request tonight for my wife Christine who has been having abdominal pain for several months which became suddenly and significantly worse tonight. She has been afraid to see a doctor and has been fearful of a serious, life altering diagnosis. She finally went to the emergency room tonight with the worsening of the pain and found that it is a more or less simple gallbladder and urinary bladder infection. This is much easier for her to take than the cancer diagnosis she had feared. I believe that prayer to God has the ability to not only heal physically but emotionally as well. Thank you God for the gift and healing power of prayer and for the grace that you shower us with daily.

    I have visited this site quite often asking for prayers for me and my family, so many times I have not shared the answered prayers that I have been blessed to recieve, this is a answered prayer that one might not seem big to them, but for me it is huge. The other day my boyfriend and I were both arrested on traffic warrants, I not knowing that I had a warrant for my arrest was not worried, I was wrong I had a two year traffic warrant that I had not known about, well forgot about the court. I was sitting in my cell with another female and I begin to pray silently that the Lord would bless me and I could be released that night. I had prayed that I could be allowed to make a free phone call as my family does not accept collect calls. The Lord truly truly blessed me I not only got out that same night, but out of the prisoners that was brought in with me I was the only one that was able to make a free phone call. It was truly a eye opener for me as I thought the Lord had forgotten about me for different reasons. I now know the devil is a liar and with the Lord's help all things are possible. I aslo prayed that my boyfriend would get out as well, that did not quite happen like that, but the judge did lower his bail from 500.00 t0 100.00 where I can pay it. Thank you Lord. He is still looking for a job and things are rough with only me working and paying all of the bills but through God's grace we have made it. Please continue to pray for me and my family as winter approaches and my gas is cut off and the bill is four hundred dollars to get restored, but I know in my heart that Jesus will not let his children suffer.

    Please praise and thank God with us for how quickly God answered our prayers to keep our daughter safe from harm, return her to normal (post hormonal imbalance problem), have her invited to Dwight's wake, and that everything then, as she e-mailed me, "went well". Also thank you God for answering the prayers about when to call my daughter also turned out ideal this a.m., and thank You also for the nice e-mail this evening from her about our doing her belated birthday gift opening on the phone tomorrow since "her day" Monday was sabotaged by that hormonal. We thank in advance that their house guest, who just learned he lost the apartment that he shared with the late Dwight, will with God's help make the right decision about whether or not to become a truck driver in Texas or with God's help to be led to find the right apartment and stay in NY. We also praise God for the continuing healing help for Bobby's aging dog Cookie eye infection. Thank you God for how how this will help free Bobby up about his concern for his furry companion so he can more effectively mediate the crucial project negotiations going on this weekend. We thank You God in advance for how with Your help that this will finally end up a signed deal if Your will and will benefit all concerned. We also thank in advance God if possible that Bobby and my husband's fees that put the principles in this project together won't have to be discounted. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    My prayer for Ginni and her cancer was answered. Her MRI came out okay. I just hope now it washes away completely and never comes back. Also, my uncle's coughing is becoming much less frequent. I think whatever was wrong with him for so long is finally healing. It's pretty amazing.

    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.
