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.

    You prayed for Alexander, and he is making remarkable progress. Thanks to fervent prayers and aggressive treatment by his medical team, Alex's sickle-cell crisis was not as severe as we thought it would be. We thank God for his tender mercies, and we thank him for you.

    I asked for people to join me in praying for a new job for my son. There has been an awful amount of unpleasantness at his current job and he has been desperately unhappy. Praise God! He was offered a new job today. Although the salary is not as good as he would like he is so excited to be joining this new company. Thanks to all who prayed and of course, my most humble thanks to God for answered prayer.

    Lord, I am so thankful that Mom's knee is improving daily and that she does not need to have it x-rayed after all.

    Thank you Lord for overseeing the situation with my tire. Last night I was pretty down when the auto store said they wouldn't replace my tire of 3 days that was defective. This morning when I called the Store Manager, to my surprise, he was very nice and said he would take care of it at no charge. I was up all night because I was so upset and worried. I know have learned I have to have faith that you will help me when in need. Thank you Lord. I love you. Jacalyn
