Answered Prayers

God Answers PrayerImage by World of Oddy via Flickr

Good Evening to All,

LORD,

I want to thank you for All of the Answered Prayers which You have bestowed upon me in my life. I have had a few big ones, and I do appreciate them, but you know if I sit and count up all of the little ones, the daily ones which you answer, they definitely out-weigh the big ones.

Everyday, when I wake up and ask you to guide my footsteps and be part of my day, and you direct my path from the time I get out of bed until the time I go to bed, I thank you.

Everytime I ask for something and I don't get what I ask for, I thank you because it would have not turned out for my best to have it. Thank you for the answered prayer.

Every time I have prayed about moving and you have put stumbling blocks so that we couldn't, thank you for answering my prayer, I may not have been able to find a church to go to where ever we wanted to move to.

My Big Answered Prayers:

He delivered me from 2 bad marriages.]
He helped me quit drinking and smoking.
He saved my life when I drove down the New Jersey turn pike on the wrong side of the road ( when I was drinking)
He saved my life in an automobile accident
He saved my husband's life when he was "blown up" in a motor home.
He saved my husband's life when he had a heart-attack
He provided for us until He decided to allow us to get on Full Service Connected Disability from the VA.

Those are just SOME of the BIG answered prayers

The little ones in addition to the ones I mentioned at the top of my post, when I lose my car keys, or glasses, I have said to Him, ok Lord, I know you are looking at my (whatever I've lost) right this minute. You know I can't see my hand in front of my face most of the time, please help me find them. The next thing I know I glance around and there they are.

If I am low on gas in my car, I have been known to ask the Lord to help me get to the station, and I roll right up to the station and to the gas pump.

He has gotten me to the flat repair place without ruining my rim, when it was completely flat.

I cannot count the times He has answered my prayers. Even when the answer has been no, or wait, He has answered. I know He has, because I will have prayed about something and about given up on an answer, when something bad happened where we were supposed to go or if we wanted to buy something, an event would happen where we needed the money we would have spent. So even when the answer is no that is still an answer.

I cannot Thank Him enough for being there for me and with me in every aspect of my life. I cannot thank Him enough for allowing me to See Him at work. I have seen miracles which He performed. I have seen money appear where there was none, I have seen healings, I have seen many things that cannot be explained, so as for me and my house we (I) will serve the LORD.

Thank you Brent Riggs for this topic.

Good Night to ALL and May God Bless!

That was a lovely posting. God does answer so many of our prayers and most people don't turn around and thank him when they get out of the struggle.

:o)

Great post. Thanks for stopping by and joining my blog. You're right God answers our prayers all the time and we need to learn to thank Him all the time.
