A Prayer Service of Guideposts

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 asked for prayers for my mom, who was ill, and without power, and for my son who was fighting pnuemonia and strep. He was returning to work today, after missing a whole week with a new position. My mom is feeling so well, that she is driving him- saving him a 2 hour commute each way for a 25 minute drive. she lives only 15 minutes from him (I am 8 hours) and is even picking him up tonight, and giving him groceries. He has tomorrow off. She said he looks awful...and I know that this is helping him so much. I thank God for my wonderful mother, and what a wonderful grandma she is. And for the healing of my son and my mom. Thank you Lord. so very gratefully yours.

    We praise and thank God in advance for His protection, guidance, and help so that our family will have a good weekend and week to come. We also thank God in advance for how His special help will this month get our daughter through the remainder of her possibly 10 "bad" hormonally altered days by nudging her to avoid stressors and/or adding alcohol that can make the possibility of a freakout more likely and cause problems with all her relationshipss. We thank God in advance for how her doctor and team of dentists are helping her heal in the various ways that she still needs to. If the electronic cigarette she is using to help her quit smoking is dangerous, we thank you God in advance for having some professional advise her of this and suggest a better alternative that will be more successful because it is so crucial she kick this habit or her implants won't heal properly. We thank You God for answering the prayer that the young man that had to live in our daughter's house for awhile found the apartment he so needed...and this one is near his two jobs unlike the former one he lost when his roommate died. Tonight when I checked our budget for the remaining two months of this year and the first of the new one, I felt so grateful to You God and my hard working husband for how little extra money we'll need to take from our retirement funds for those three months because of the unexpected ways God and my husband's efforts have provided us what is needed at just the right time. We also thank You God for Your continued protection that the fee that will be paid my husband from the just signed deal that will be "fair" and paid according to God's perfect timing. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    I thank the Lord for answering our prayers to sell my grandmother's house and car. I am thankful that he has kept my son well. I am thankful for the blessings that he sends down each day. Thank you Lord for your gift of salvation and forgiveness of sins.
