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.

    Greetings! About 3 years ago I wrote to you requesting prayer for my daughter to rethink using birth control pills. I had read that there can be a real, serious health risk when taking birth control pills, such as strokes and other very serious neurological injuries. I'm overjoyed to let you know that I just found out today that my daughter stopped taking birth control pills 6 months ago!! PTL and THANK YOU!

    God answered my prayer and gave me someone to love. Now I need to learn not to be afraid to love him because he is waiting for me patiently. Thank you.

    I asked for prayers for my son so many times, to deal with his alcoholism. He was bad for over 7 years. He has been sober now for over 6...and he is newly engaged and has a great job. I know this would not be possible with out God's intervention. I know because I tried to make him get sober (especially when he was young and lived at home). Nothing I did work, neither did jail or any treatment centers...Until HE was ready. Then God was waiting for him. I am forever grateful for the power of everyone's prayers that kept my son alive long enough to get the help he needed. Thank you all, forever.
