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.

Gratitude is Attractive

Seven things went wrong last week, all of them hard and out of her control. She prayed and asked others to pray.

This week, her problems are in the process of being solved. When I asked her what to pray, she thought and then answered, “I’m so grateful for what the Lord is doing, all I can think to say is thank you.”

It’s fun to help a person like her.

 

Expectations Informed by Prayer

We expect sunny weather when there’s one small hand-sized cloud in the sky.

Elijah, on the other hand, expected heavy showers because of one small cloud.

Why such different expectations? Elijah had prayed earnestly for rain. I’m happy to report that soon after that one small cloud appeared, Elijah’s sky grew black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy shower (1 Kings 18:45).

Let faith in God, through prayer, inform your expectations.
