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 requested prayer this morning for my wife's car. Her lights would not turn off and she was worried about the battery running down. About a minute after I submitted the request, she called to inform me that someone had showed her how to fix it. Thank God!

    Father, I've been in a dark place, a black hole. I'm overwhelmed by depression, broken heartedness and lonliness. It has been an effort putting one foot in front of the other. I dread waking up in the mornings. I requested prayer for deliverance from depression, anxiety and lonliness. I continue to request prayer for those things and for a special Christ centered miracle. Today, for the first time in a very long time I awake sincerely thanking God for a new day. Thanksgiving and praise were on my lips. Thank you Jesus. Please continue to lift me up in prayer. Amen.

    Last year I asked you to pray for my son and daughter in law who had separated. They have now reconciled and are living together with their two little boys. Thank you and Praise the LORD

    I volunteer in animal rescue and it breaks my heart when animals are put down because no one wants them and shelters are crowded. A few weeks ago I asked for prayer about this situation in shelters in Ohio and asked God to provide rescue for several dogs in particular. I gave God praise because one who was in a kill shelter for long past his time was rescued, but was saddened because two that I had prayed for apparently did not make it. Praise God that He did hear and answer me (HE ALWAYS DOES) because last night I saw one of the two dogs had been pulled by anotehr shelter to save them, and I trust and believe that the other was rescued as well. Thank You Father that with this situation, as all things in my life, when I put You first You give me the desires of my heart. To God be the Glory!

    About July I asked for prayer for my grandson who was suffering from ITP (idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) which means his blood platelet count was extremely low. If he cut himself or had a blow to his head, he could possibly bleed to death. After two months his count rose from 4 to 7 - a long way from the normal range of 150 to 400. In October it increased to 21. Yesterday (in November) the tests showed the count is now 90. Thank you for your prayers and thanks to God for His amazing healing power. Please continue to pray that the platelets will get to a normal level, and stay there.
