Answers to Prayer!

A couple of weeks ago, Ryan preached on persistence in prayer.  It got me thinking about how many recent answers to persistent prayer our family has seen lately :)  So, I went to my prayer journal and found the following:
We began praying for an affordable home in Bellevue on March 28 - this prayer was answered on April 15, less than three weeks!  We began praying for a bi-lingual school for the boys on March 28 also - this prayer was answered on August 30, 5 months of persistent prayer!  We began praying for a car on April 16 - this prayer was answered on May 28, just one month!

There are also other prayers for friends for the kids, peace and adjustment for our family, and financial concerns noted in my book.  God is answering ALL of them!  Sometimes He answers quickly, and sometimes we have to wait, but the important thing is that we continue to persevere in our prayers and WAIT on the Lord.  Don't try to "fix" things ourselves or get ahead of His plan!

One of the major prayers that we have had, and many of you with us, is for me to get a job.  We began praying for this on March 28 and, SIX months later - on September 30, that prayer was ANSWERED!!!!!!
Praise the LORD!!!!  I will begin working as a Family Resource Coordinator for Kindering next week :)

Thank you for your prayers and thank you for sharing in our lives.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus" Philippians 4:6 & 7
