God Answered Prayer!


We have been in desperate need of rain. There were threats of rationing our water even more. We asked our friends to pray...God heard!!

Last night I began to hear the thunder roll. It was if God witnessed to me that our prayers had been answered. The story of Elijah seeing the cloud the size of a man's hand came to my mind. The showers were about to fall. And fall they did. It was like music to our ears as we heard the drops begin to fall on the tin roof. God had heard. God cared.

Today was much cooler and pleasant. The heat didn't zap all our energy, and we felt refreshed. Again this afternoon another shower passed by, God has surely supplied our need. It was such an encouragement to us that God cares about the rain and the little things in our life. He will not forsake us in the greater trials ahead. What a wonderful God we serve.

Thank you for helping us pray. Praise God his faithfulness!

Thank God for answering prayer!! That's wonderful. I'd still like to send you some of our rain. We've have rain every day for the last week and it's in the forecast until Saturday. Soon we'll float away from here! ha!! It's supposed ot be April showers bring May flowers. I don't know what May showers will bring other than lawns that look like hay fields! But at least we've had rain. Thank God for answering prayer for you all!!
