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 asked for prayers to help my mother to be free of pain and have her leg heal. I think today, after a week, was the turning point of her starting to recover. We have a long way to go, but I know that your prayers are helping.

    I asked you this wed to pray for me I had some bills coming up next week and my checking account was in the negatives and I had no food in the house. Today I received a check from my bank saying they made a mistake regarding my escrow and sent me a check. With that check I can pay 2 bills and buy 50 dollars worth of food. THANK YOU VERY MUCH LORD AND Everyone that has prayed for me and my family. I am so happy I feel like a brick has been lifted off me.

    Thank you for your prayers. God has answered. I had breast cancer surgery on Wed. this week, fearing the worst. Today the surgeon's office called with the first biopsy report....negative in outer margins; negative in lymph nodes. We truly give praise and thanks to God, and thank you so much for your comforting ministry.

    I asked God for a prayer to be answered that could only be a miracle, and He has been faithful. I am on my knees. His love and his power are overwhelming. Our Father is huge. Thank you Father!

    I asked you to pray for my brother-in-law, he had a 15 hr surgery on Tuesday, it is Friday, he is doing well, even smiling and joking. They had him stand up today as well. Thank you to all of you for your prayers. God Bless you.

    I prayed and prayed that my nephew would fine a job and God answered my prayer - He was offered a job today. This is just the beginning for him because I know God will be there for him and guide him as he becomes very successful in what ever he does. He's finishing his master's program and with God's guidance will go on to get his Ph.D.
