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 how quickly God answered our prayers to keep our daughter safe from harm, return her to normal (post hormonal imbalance problem), have her invited to Dwight's wake, and that everything then, as she e-mailed me, "went well". Also thank you God for answering the prayers about when to call my daughter also turned out ideal this a.m., and thank You also for the nice e-mail this evening from her about our doing her belated birthday gift opening on the phone tomorrow since "her day" Monday was sabotaged by that hormonal. We thank in advance that their house guest, who just learned he lost the apartment that he shared with the late Dwight, will with God's help make the right decision about whether or not to become a truck driver in Texas or with God's help to be led to find the right apartment and stay in NY. We also praise God for the continuing healing help for Bobby's aging dog Cookie eye infection. Thank you God for how how this will help free Bobby up about his concern for his furry companion so he can more effectively mediate the crucial project negotiations going on this weekend. We thank You God in advance for how with Your help that this will finally end up a signed deal if Your will and will benefit all concerned. We also thank in advance God if possible that Bobby and my husband's fees that put the principles in this project together won't have to be discounted. We thank, just as we always ask, in Jesus Christ's name.

    My prayer for Ginni and her cancer was answered. Her MRI came out okay. I just hope now it washes away completely and never comes back. Also, my uncle's coughing is becoming much less frequent. I think whatever was wrong with him for so long is finally healing. It's pretty amazing.

    Several months ago I requested prayer that I would find work that allowed me to stay home and would be right for me. Thank you so much for your prayers..... a permanent position that is right for me opened up and I started three weeks ago. Your encouragement and prayers made such a difference, and I am deeply grateful to you and thankful to God.

    I had asked for prayer for the sale of my home. And god has delivered with 2 noncontingent offers. Thank you for interceding on my behalf. And praise god for his faithfulness.

    After returning to the States from the mission field in China I prayed that God would provide a house for my family. People in my small group Bible study laughed in disbelief because at that time the average price of a house where we lived was half a million dollars. We moved to a smaller city a year or two later and I inherited a house. Later, after my wife left me I prayed for friends and some quickly came into my life. I prayed the ants would leave my house, they did. I prayed a problem with my cheek would be healed. It was. Praise the Lord!!

    I'd posted prayer requests a few times, and prayed often myself, for my daughter who had been smoking for several years. She had developed a condition that could lead to cancer and the cigarette smoking was making that chance much higher. Today she told me she quit "cold turkey" a few weeks ago. Thanks be to God! He is awesome.

    I thank you all for praying with me. I prayed for the return of my grandaughter Angel,who had runaway from home. She returned home THANK YOU JESUS. We are still praying that her attitude of defiance and disobedience changes, and that she makes better choices in life, but most of all that she allows Jesus to become a part of her life.
