Answered Prayers

Stories of answered prayers can strengthen our faith and offer hope and reassurance. While we don't know what causes God to answer prayer, we strive to pray from a place of authenticity and humility. When you are in a challenging moment, remember answered prayers in your own lives and the lives of those around you.
