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.

    I lost my job on august 22, 2014, and I had stopped paying my tithes and offerings, I became so frustrated and angry, I started reading my bible and renewing my trust and faith in God, and waiting on him again and going on guideposts for prayer and making affordable donations, and God blessed my socks off and Approved my Unemployment Compensation today, I will be paying 10 percent off of the gross, because I have another hurdle I need to jump over, and that is to be approved for a job quickly. Thank you Jesus,

    my car would not work.Tried for 3 days to get it fixed. I was spending the last of my money that I needed to pay my bills with on parts. The young man helping me had tried everything and he is very knowledgeable. I recently moved to a rural area and was applying for jobs, needed my car. I prayed that we could find the problem and that it would be something not too costly. After 3 days we found the problem and it was "by accident" that we came across it. It was a tiny wire in a place that would not have been found easily even with a diagnostic computer. It was a problem that cost 3.29. I want to thank anyone that may have prayed for my request. I was able to take back over 200.00 in parts to the store. I can now pay my bills and go out to find a job.

    In August of 2013, our only child, John, who is now 24 years old, reached the peak of his anxiety. He was so overtaken by it that he could not keep his food down. He cried to me like a small child. Even though I felt like I was being consumed by his anxiety and its symptoms, I kept strong, and held on to God. The doctors who saw him initially could not find anything wrong with his stomach. One day, after another unsuccessful doctor's visit, he and his dad called me on their way home, and my son was in tears. I went down on my knees and prayed to God for guidance. He led us to another doctor who prescribed John "Remeron". And then, a friend, who knew of my son's condition, led me to the patron saint of those who have emotional and mental problems. I emailed the shrine in O., and received a reply. I signed up to be a member, they sent me prayer books, and I started a devotion to her. As I write this, my son is well, through the grace of God prayers and intersession. I did not hear and I am grateful that a friend told me about her. I would like to pass this on to those who might be having emotional or mental problems such as anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorders, and such. prayers and intersession is very powerful. The immediate reversal of my son's condition attests to that. pray for us.

    I was told I was going to need shoulder surgery and others said they were off work for 4 to 6 weeks. After requesting prayers for healing and after numerous diagnostic tests including MRI and CT-Scan the surgeon said it should heal on it's own and just need physical therapy. Thanks be to God for his healing power!
