So Many Answered Prayers!!!

For quite sometime I really was beginning to think GOD wasn't listening to me anymore.  :(  I thought my prayers were bouncing off the ceiling.  I'm sure most people can relate.  Even when we really know that isn't true, but we get frustrated because there hasn't been an answer, any kind of response, ya feel like GOD's not listening.  In my case, I felt I was so far away from GOD, HE was ignoring me.  sigh~

This week GOD proved me wrong again!  (thank GOD!) I have had several answered prayers.
My friend C~
*won the makeover that I prayed she would win.

An old neighbor had a prayer request for her baby, he was diagnosed with craniosynostosis (premature fusing of the skull sutures, causing a build-up of intracranial pressure among other things).
I prayed and believed GOD for healing and peace for momma and daddy.  (I know many people were also praying)
*"CT scan  showed that the plates of his skull are NOT fusing together - he is perfectly healthy and will not need surgery. "

Prayer for a former classmate's niece to have a safe and healthy delivery.
*After 2 days of labor, "Baby has arrived!! He is healthy and happy. Mom is doing good."

Thursday, Doodles had been practicing on her pink and white nails on dowel rods, and she was getting frustrated.  I said a little prayer and asked GOD to help her because I knew she was tired and wanted to succeed. 
* She sent me a picture later of her first attempt on her own finger.  Her instructors were amazed at her first attempted.  They said it's the best first try they every seen! (btw that hangnail was already there)

Another friend is looking for a job and had a job interview. 
*she has a follow up next week!

A friend is planning her daughter's wedding and needed a comforting word. I knew before she called. 
 *I prayed beforehand and when she called not only did she feel better, but she got some good news about the church offering to not charge her for the wedding!  (we prayed for help in the wedding finance dept too!)

I asked my friends to pray about dh and the job situation on Wednesday, and before the interview at 6, *dh had already interviewed early and had the job!

I am overwhelmed by so many answered prayers!  I am feeling so blessed and relieved!  So grateful! So very grateful, that GOD didn't forget about me. HE isn't ignoring me, and most importantly, HE STILL AND ALWAYS HAS loved me!  Thank YOU LORD!

There are several request on my prayer list that I'm praying for.  My friend on FB started poke and pray day.  I think it is perfect!  You poke someone to let them know you're praying for them.  She uses a specific day, I thought it was Wednesday, so that was the day I prayed all the above requests, but then I decided from now on,when I say a prayer for someone, I'm gonna poke them (well as long as I can remember.  LOL)

Blessings and I hope you're encouraged!  :D

Praise God. HE never leaves us, or forsakes us.

AND you're getting new dishes! ;)

(you must have told God you were really tired of those old ones.... lol)

Glad you have been lifted up and God has shown you evidence of his listening. Nice when that happens isn't it.
