22And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” ~ Matthew 21:22 (ESV)
My friends, welcome to this week’s Prayers for the Week post. Today we are talking about when God answers our prayers. Sometimes it is fairly quickly, sometimes it takes longer, but God always answers our prayers. The answer is not always what we want it to be, but it is answered nonetheless. For this week, we actually have several answered prayers that we want to give praise to God for, so let’s get right to it!
- Jodi has an update on her Father-in-Law from her prayer request of last week: *1/16/17 update: Gerald was discharged from the hospital yesterday! He will receive therapy at home and have daily nurse visits. Please continue prayers for complete healing, that the cause would be revealed, and for Elaine to have patience during this time. And, of course, lift shouts of praise for his rapid improvement! Thank you!!!
- Jodi also had a prayer request for her son Kyle and his job interview, and we have an update on that as well: Kyle got the job!!! Starts next Tuesday (24th). Thank you so much for praying over him!
- Jodi also had an answered prayer regarding the person that shot the police officer in Orlando: They got him! Thank you, again, for your faithful prayers!
- Leslie has a prayer request: My sweet dog, Meg, is having surgery tomorrow to have a tumor removed. I know this is just a little blip in light of others troubles, but please think a good thought for her. And for me-
- I found out from Leslie that Meg is doing well, they find out the results of the testing on Monday, but Meg is much better.
- Please continue praying for the prayer requests we had from last week. There were a lot of them, please keep lifting them up to God. Here is the post in case you need to read and pray them again.
Now, please join with us in one voice as we pray the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray:
Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done
On Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those that trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, and Power, and Glory
Forever and ever. Amen.
