Our Prayers were answered!

I got a curious phone message last week, from someone I love: “Please call me. I have something to tell you.”

I called as soon as I could, and heard these words: “Remember that guy you prayed for during my college days? He just informed that he was baptized because he believes in Jesus!”

For years, the two us prayed faithfully for his salvation.  And now his friend is a brother!

And keep on praying for the salvation of those you love! The next prayer God answers might be yours!

Don’t Give Up Hope

My middle daughter recently told me this story: “We had given up hope. I prayed one more time. The thought flashed through my mind that I should look through the file box again. It seemed ridiculous, because I had looked so many times, but I got out of bed, and opened a folder. The social security card we were looking for dropped out.”

Do not give up! God answers prayer.

God Still Answers Prayer

If a complete and total stranger came up to me and asked whether or not God answers prayer, I would say he undoubtedly does. Since our God is loving and kind, he listens to us, and pays attention to what we say when we pray.

One example of this being so: We used to have an elderly couple for our next door neighbors. Now, the woman took excellent care of her yard, a beautiful flower garden being her pride and joy. Once she and her husband decided to go on vacation, and so, low and behold, we were asked to take care of her garden. All went well until one afternoon; we looked out of our windows and it was hailing! My mom knew the lady would be devastated if her flowers were ruined, so we got down on our knees and prayed. When we looked up, the hail had stopped! Such an excellent example that God answers prayer is certainly undeniable.*
