A Prayer Service of Guideposts

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 Lord for sparing my nephews's life and the life of the other person involved in a bad car wreck tonight. I had just been thinking how you have shielded my family for many years from tragedy and you have spared us again. Thank you Jesus!

    God has answered our prayers which we believed were impossible to happen. We wanted a house to live permanently. Suddenly from nowhere we received a 3 storied "mansion". We wanted a baby for our daughter who was reaching 40. It happened in a mysterious way. We are sure He will help her and the baby to glorify Him for all His mercies and loving care. We can declare that our God will grant you anything impossible, when you really believe in Him.

    The prayers of the righteous. I needed you and called on you, Guideposts, and you answered on behalf of our Father. Last night was wonderful. All is well and I thank HIM for sending you all to see about me and my son. To ALL that prayed, may you be blessed bountifully in all your endeavors and continue to give God the Praise. Amen.

    I went from a stressful job, where my salary was cut, to being unemployed to now being employed at a great company with a higher salary and awesome benefits- all within 1 year. Was feeling a little frazzled this morning then God reminded me how far God has carried me and that my "worst" day here is so far beyond my best day at my previous job. God is worthy of all the praise and more, and even as God continues to work in my life I'm constantly amazed at God's amazing grace and faithfulness. I'm so grateful and humbled that God would allow me to encourage others through my experience. I've been stretched emotionally and in my faith over the past year and a half. So I just want to give thanks and let y'all know that God is able- God can even use our broken places to bless someone else. So be encouraged! Thank you for reading.

    Praise report. I thank God for blessing me today. He had given me courage and strength to face my fears. I had my stress test today and it was normal. Thank you for praying for me. God bless you.

    Dear Friends, Thank you for praying for my daughter Heather. She saw her psychiatrist and he is holding off for another month on raising her dose for Geodon. She is Autistic, BiPolar and OCD. We had a heart rhythm scare with her, and Geodon can cause heart problems. Please pray that her behavior settles down and she will continue to be stable at this current dosage. Thank you. She seems the Dr. next mohth!

    Dear Saints, I asked prayer for my boyfriend's salvation and last month he accepted Jesus in his heart and he got saved. Thank you very much for all your prayers. God is so great! Krisztina
