Praises To My Heavenly Father For Answering Prayer!
I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
(Isaiah 46:4 TNIV)
He was only five months old when I first saw him. His young mom had left him with me for a few hours. I had just met her and my heart was touched with God’s love for her, because she was so young and seems so alone.
As I held E in my arms, rocking him, I had an overwhelming sense of God’s presence and a special love for this baby. I prayed for God to protect him and for him to grow up to love God.
Three months later my son, J, married the young lady and the baby became my grandson. They were married for a few years before J was able to adopt him and E became my grandchild legally.
J and K were married two years when they had a beautiful son who died suddenly at eight weeks, but two years later God blessed them with a healthy son.
Their marriage lasted for only twelve years, separating J from his two sons, except for short visits. The miles between us also separated me from my grandchildren.
I never stopped loving them. I never stopped praying for them, as I pray for all of my grandchildren and their parents.
I give praise to my Heavenly Father today for answering my prayers!
E enlisted in the Army in early 2003 and has been in Iraq for two tours and has just completed a tour in Afghanistan. God has answered my prayer for his protection! He was in the middle of the war facing grave danger and narrowly escaped harm many times, but was never hurt.
Only God! He kept him safe! I praise God for his mercy and for answering prayer. From the first prayer I prayed 27 years ago and continuing today, God is faithful to watch over all of us and to keep us in His care.
Praise God today for all of His blessings and many answers to our prayers!
