When we learned she was in labor, we enlisted an army of people to pray for our daughter. She was very sick with Covid.
Her covid symptoms disappeared when she walked into the hospital to have the baby. They came back the next day, but she’s improving steadily and able to care for her sweet baby boy.
The Lord listens when people pray.
The Lord woke me up to pray for our pregnant daughter who was sick with COVID. I did not know her labor had begun. She delivered a healthy baby boy later that day. We are so grateful to God for the gift of our precious grandson.
The Lord woke me up to pray so he could answer my prayer.
A: To pray.
If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked way, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).
While working on a house project, my husband silently prayed, “Lord, what tool should I use for this next step?”
At that moment, the thought flashed through my mind to tell him about a tool I knew we had. It was exactly what he needed.
God is a very present help (from Psalm 46:1).
As we approached the toll booth we realized neither of us had any cash. We searched and found several coins in the car, but needed one more quarter.
Paul prayed, “Lord, we need a quarter.”
Seconds later I found a quarter in my purse. God answers prayer!
My daughter texted: I left early early for work this morning. I didn’t make a lunch last night and didn’t want to wake everyone up making a lunch this morning. So I prayed there would be food here today.
And there was!!!!!! I enjoyed a surprise birthday breakfast for someone and leftover lunch from some bigwig meeting.
I like it when I decide to pray about something.
I asked the Lord if He would show me others who follow him at the school where I’ve been substituting. That very day I discovered two teachers who love Jesus.
Keep your eyes and ears open for answers when you pray.
On Sunday, we saw 2 woodpecker holes on our house trim. My husband, who can do almost anything, said he could fix them, but not without a forty foot ladder. We prayed about our need. (We know where to rent one, but our car is small.)
On Wednesday I drove through town, asking the Lord if there was ladder we could use. I noticed a Comcast truck with a ladder, but it didn’t seem right, so I kept praying. I passed the fire station; they have ladders, but woodpecker holes aren’t an emergency so I didn’t stop. Then I saw two men using a big tall ladder. I stopped. I prayed for favor. I asked if I could rent their ladder. They offered to deliver it to our house.
It’s Thursday morning. The woodpecker holes are fixed and I’m waiting for them to pick up their ladder.
If you need something, remember to pray about it. And after you’ve prayed, look for God’s answer.
(These men live an hour from our town. I think God gave them a job here, yesterday and today, so we could use their ladder. I told them they were an answer to my prayer. I’ll tell them again today. God will be glorified.)
Samuel said, “Stand here quietly before the Lord as I remind you of all the great things
He has done for you.”
“You cried out to the Lord. He rescued you.
You cried out again. He rescued you again.
You asked for a king.The Lord granted your request.”
Talk about answers to prayer to inspire worship and obedience (see 1 Samuel 12:7-14).
A thick swarm of flies filled the palace. Pharaoh told Moses, “Hurry and pray for me.” Moses pleaded with the Lord to remove all the flies and the Lord did as Moses asked (from Exodus 8:20-32).
God answers specific prayers.
