God Answers Prayer

I shared with friends on yesterday that I had a problem arise that was going to cost me big bucks -- bucks that I didn't have at the moment to spend.  I didn't know what to do, so I did what I always do when I don't know what to do ...

I prayed.

Over the years God has proven Himself faithful, so I laid my situation at His feet, prayed, and believed. I asked Him to guide me towards the solution.

Because I read, meditate on, and study His Word I know the promises that He's made to me as a believer, and I stood on His promise to answer my prayers. Slowly the answer began to unfold in my mind and step by step I moved towards a resolution.

Within a few minutes of following His lead the problem was solved, I didn't have to spend money that I didn't have, and I was able to move on to more pressing matters.

Give God a chance to work in your life. Take all of your problems, both great and small, to Him. See if He won't show up on your behalf and make a way out of no way.

If you have a testimony about how God has answered prayer in your life, share it with us below. He loves it when we give Him the praise that He's so rightly due for being so good to us.

"Ask, and it shall be given you ..." Matthew 7:7a
