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.

    Thank You Heavenly Father for hearing and answering all our prayers for Miles our precious 31/2 year old boy. Thank You for keeping them safe as they traveled to and from San Diego to see the specialists there, and we praise You God for the wonderful, blessed evaluation they gave Miles. You and You alone are the healer, Father. By Your stripes we are healed. Thank You God for healing Miles and meeting all his needs. We give You all the praise, honor and Glory in Jesus' Holy name. Thank You Father for all those who prayed for Miles. We bless them in the name of Jesus and pray for all their needs to be met.

    I have been praying and asking for prayers for a job for many months. Some job opportunities fell through, some I turned down because they didn't feel right and I wanted to trust the Lord for the right job. Then I got a call the other day from a friend saying she was offered another position in her hometown and she wanted to recommend me for her job. I prayed again, asked you guys to pray and then went to the interview. The interview was the best I had ever had, it was a perfect fit and even better than what I had imagined. God is wonderful! He cares about all the details of our life and we are so safe in Him. Praise God!! Thank you all for lifting my needs up in prayer.

    Acouple of weeks ago I asked for prayers for my son Adam. He was one piece of document for getting his ID. But unfortunately, his ID was stolen, I mean birth certificate ss number, other documents. His getting this one piece of document for ID and he has to start all over again. So all is not lost. I thank you for your prayers for him, because at least, he will have that one piece of ID to start with.

    Dear Lord, sometimes I encounter hostile, mean people, but thank You for giving me a circle of friends to counterbalance this.
