Faithful Fridays - Prayers Answered

Today for Joy's Faithful Fridays, I thought I would share a few answered prayers. There have been several prayer requests from different blogging friends over time for which I've prayed and I want to give God the glory for these answered prayers! Some of them were immediate, some over time, and God is still working in some of the situations. But God IS faithful.

Here's just a few:

Most of you know that Lea of Farmhouse Blessings has asked prayers for her son, Jase, and their family. I know I've heard from her and read on her blog that Jase is doing well and not having anymore black-outs! This is wonderful!

Donna of Never-So-Simple actually posted a Faithful Friday today, but I was so excited to see that God was getting her and her family through these tough times for them, with both her and her husband being without jobs. If you've followed her blog, you know how worried she's been about it. But be sure and click over to Donna's blog and read how God is taking care of them.

Then I'm sure you've read about Carolyn of Cranberry Crossings. Without going into detail, Carolyn has asked prayers for a situation with her granddaughter and a court case. God is so good and has allowed this case to go on to Grand Jury, which is a big answer to prayer.

I don't know about you, but this is exciting to me. As Christians, we should lift each other in prayer and God is faithful to hear and answer those prayers.

Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing your comments and if I haven't been by lately, please don't give up on me. I'm trying to balance my time and I'll be by as soon as I can!

God bless you all and have a great weekend! :)

Tammy, answered prayers are always amazing to me. When God give us those little glimmers of hope, it can change our whole outlook! He is so good.

I understand about trying to get around to everyone's blog. I'm a little behind too!

Awwww, thank you Tammy! God is so good! Answered prayer is the most wonderful thing! This is definately a JOY-ful time for us!And knowing that precious special friends are praying on our behalf is one of the best feelings in the world!
Our war is far from over, but winning this small battle is a step in the right direction. I know that the Lord will take care of this in His time, which is always perfect.
I think most of us understand how hard it is to visit everyone on our blog rolls. It's a struggle, but something fun for us. But real life has to come first, and we understand that. :)
Thank you again, sweet friend! Have a great weekend!

It is amazing to see God at work, all we ever hear are bad things happening in the world, But there is so much good as well!

God is faithful. It may seem that as we're going through hard times He's not really there, but when we look back we see He was there the whole time holding us. I'm very happy for these answers!!!

It's always so good to remember that God not only hears our prayers, but answers our prayers as only He can and does.

Yes, prayers do help, Tammy... One of my best friends in the world, Susan from GA, has breast cancer --and it has returned. I'm so worried about her --and ask you and everyone to pray for her healing.

Tammy, Our God is truly an awesome God!! Praise the Lord for our prayers that have been answered, and I know God's working on so many of our other prayers too!!

It is hard trying to balance one's time... I am not real good at doing that. I'm still working on it! The day just seems to fly by, & before I know it.. it's time to go to bed again...

Today's going to be busy with shop, shop, shopping for a new bed pillow! My hubby is going with me on my hunt! The one I'm using now is hurting my neck so bad.. so, off we go to find a new one, and hopefully that one will work! Wish me lotsa luck Tammy!! ;)

Take care now...

Have a great weekend!

Love & Blessings,

God does answer prayer, and it's so great to join in prayer with these blogging friends and then rejoice together in answered prayers! I know what it is to have people pray for ME, and how thankful I am!

Sorry it's been a while since I've been here! Just got caught up on all your doings! Hope you have a great weekend!

And the best thing is that there is always time for prayer. No matter the activity or chore, there is time to reach out to Him for His shoulder.
I have been praying for our mutual friends. God is good. He will listen and He will help.

Thanks for reminding us about answered prayers. It seems to help to see them in writing.
