Answered Prayer


“He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble: I will deliver him, and honour him” (Psalm 91:15 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).

The program allows me to screen my incoming telephone calls with the option to choose which ones to answer. In contrast, it’s so good to have a God who always answers when we call. It’s a given! He wants to hear from you. Not only does He answer us but, He will be with us when we are in trouble; deliver us and honor us for calling on Him. Can’t beat that kind of deal, can you?

Prayer: I really don’t know how people live without you, Lord. It seems like trouble follows me around; so glad that You do too!

Nine years. Giving up would have been easy. A few days ago, I had the opportunity to bring some of these people to my church. Not only did they love it, but they returned only a few days later for Youth Group,…
