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 have been praying for a friend who, since the sudden death of her husband 2 years ago, has been searching for answers: where to live, which friends to stay near to, why am I still here on earth? She has traveled over the country, found widows/widowers support groups, visited old friends and family, and now feels called to answer a request for help from a young widowed friend in Florida whose mother is dying and father has dementia. Father, thank You for sending Linda there, as she feels she is fulfilling a purpose You have for her, and even thinks she may buy a house in that town where she also has other friends. You are faithful to lead us, Father, and I praise You and thank You for Your wonderful guidance, mercy and love for your children. In Jesus' name, amen.

    I asked for prayers to make it to my son's games due to the fact I haven't been feeling well and I was able to make it. Thanks to all who prayed and thank you Lord!

    my mom is gaining some strength. she can stay awake almost the whole day, and her leg infection is healing. it is a slow and painful process, and she has great discomfort at night, but she is so happy to know that she is being prayed for. We have made some progress and I know, and thank God in advance for, her complete recovery.

    I prayed that my son would be accepted to the college he wanted to attend. His test scores weren't as high as they needed to be but he was accepted. Thank you God! I praise you for helping him become the young man he is and I pray daily that you will guide him as he enters this next phase of his life.
