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.

    Please praise and thank God with us for helping and protecting our daughter last night from harming herself or while driving under the inluence from hurting anyone else. We also thank God in advance for how he will help her stop drinking (if she still is) as well as heal from this usually rare hormonally caused freakout even after her period has started. Guide us in the timing of when to call her next so that we won't accidentally retrigger her staying so negative about life. We ask God's assistance with helping her figure better ways to remember to take her hormonal prescription to prevent this. We know that whatever else is possible to treat her complex hormone and health problems God is working on leading us to that information or professionals as well as helping her father to earn the extra income that possibly would be needed for such specialized care...and we praise and thank God in advance for this. We are very grateful for everyone that continues to thank and pray with us month after month for better healing solutions for our daughter's complex health problems so one day she will again be able to work and in all the other ways get her "life back". We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    Almighty Lord, I thank you in advance for obtaining the Phd Faculty Improvement Program (FIP) which I'd applied for in April 2011. Last month, i discovered i was denied the same, due to a changed selection criteria (posted after I applied for it). I continue with Your help to push for the same with the concerned Selection Committee, as this will help me continue my PhD work successfully. Am waiting for Your Miracle, Lord.

Thank you God for helping him in always and lessen his stress and concerns. We thank, just as we ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    Please praise and thank God in advance for how He is protecting, helping, and supporting our daughter tonight to go and stay in a motel where she'll be more safe than in her car parked or driving around when her world looks so bleak...on her birthday. We do thank You God for answering our prayers about her birthday today as she has generally kept it all together in a more adult way than in the past when "getting a year" closer to 50 must be compounding her distress about her "stuck" life. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.
