The Power Of Prayer

I am a firm believer in the power of prayer. I've seen and experienced how God answered my prayers to Him. Many times in my life, I seek God for all the things concerning His will for me. I always go to Him in prayer. In the past, I prayed to the good Lord to give me the right man He wants me to have, a man who is a Christian and one who will love and accept me for who and what I am. God answered my prayers and He gave me my husband George. God answers prayers in 3 ways, yes, wait or no because He has something better for you. But whatever the answer is, we must always thank Him and praise Him. The Bible said, in everything give thanks, whether in bad times or in good times for it is the will of God. Through the years, I've developed my prayer life. I always talk to God and tell Him all my cares, my plans and everything that is within me. I really believe that when we pray, miracles happen.

The list of my answered prayers is too long and I will relate the rest in my next posts. But here's an incident that happened 2 years ago. My husband had been coughing and coughing and almost out of breath. The cough doesn't stop and his face was turning red already. I was worried, I didn't know what to do. He said he can hardly breath. Then I went to get my Bible and read to him Psalm 121. After reading, I laid my hands on him and by faith I prayed to God to heal my hubby. I claimed Jesus' promise in the Bible found in Mark 11:24, "Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them and you shall have them." I prayed intently and tears were running down my cheeks. Before I closed my prayer, I thanked God for healing George. That's faith, believing for the healing even it didn't happened yet. After I prayed, I told hubby that God has healed him and that he will be alright. I told him just believe. There was peace in my heart after I prayed and I went to eat my lunch. After a few hours my hubby was feeling okay and the cough subsided.

I asked him what caused his cough because before that he was alright and no cough. He told me that he took Celebrex, a prescription medicine with an empty stomach. I told him not to take those pills anymore and throw it away because it almost killed him. I remember that medicine has been so controversial in the past because of it's bad side effects. I just wonder why the FDA didn't pull it out from the market. I advised hubby to tell his doctor about the adverse effect of that pill. I was so thankful to Jesus for He is our Healer. He is the greatest physician and nothing is impossible to Him as long as you believe. Do you have any problem that you need God's help? Then go to Him in prayer my friend. Go to Jesus just as you are. Cast all your cares upon Him for He cares for you. He love you that much that even while we were yet sinners, He died on the cross for our sins. What a great love! To my readers I can be your prayer partner if you need one. Just let me know and I'll pray for you. Miracles happen when we pray.
