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 prayer for help for several dogs who were scheduled to be euthanized in shelters - while some did not make it, several were miraculously rescued or adopted - and I mean miraculously as they were old or had been in the shelter far beyond their time and kept on. Thank You Father for Your mercy - Your Word says You have compassion on all You have made and this shows that You care for all of your creation - not only the animals too, but those of us who help to care for them.

    Dear Lord, I want to thank you for the answered prayer of peace. I am feeling incredibly peaceful and I know that it can only come from You. The bond election is on Tuesday and if it passes...eminent domain on our family home, if it doesn't then still have a house that will be on the market. It has been a long seven years with a great deal of struggling emotionally, financially and other areas....but I am feeling peace about the entire situation. I give You all the glory for this feeling because I should be nervous, anxious, etc....but I truly know that You will fight for me and whatever happens will be Your will. Thank you for this wonderful feeling of peace. I praise Your precious Holy name, Amen.

    I want to thank you for your prayers to my request at Thanksgiving in 2007. Our son was in jail for drug possession and needed to be saved. I asked for your prayers to turn his life around when he got out. As a result, he got assigned to the "God Pod" in jail and studied the bible, which he said he read 3 times. Since he got out, he has been going to Church regularly, praying at every opportunity, and helping other people. He has a great job and is very happy. I believe God truly performed a miracle on him and thank him every day for his answer to our prayers.

    I started building my dream home in 2004. After three weeks I discovered that my finances were drained and nothing was happening. I prayed that God would send me an honest person to do my work. It took seven years but it was worth the wait. After 4 weeks I can see my dream becoming a reality. I am so grateful. Thank you God and to the Guidepost family.

    I asked for help in prayer and it came through with flying colors. I was facing 33 months in prison because of past stupid mistakes. I went to court and they came up with a deal for me, 20 days in the county jail. Who could believe that I would get that kind of break in my life.
