God Answers Prayers

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." (Jeremiah 33:3)

Kelly was in second grade. Her parents were teachers in a Christian school. They lived a happy life, serving God in their church and school. But all the sudden, something happened that changed their lives forever: doctors found a deadly tumor at the base of Kelly's brain.

The students in Kelly's school, people at her church, family members, and many others who heard about Kelly prayed for her. She had surgery, but the surgeon was unable to remove the entire tumor. She was a good girl with a bright smile and cheerful attitude through all the doctor visits, hospital stays, and extra attention she got from everyone. The family took a dream vacation so that they could have some wonderful memories with Kelly before she died. Would God answer many people's prayers that Kelly would be healed, even when the doctors said it was hopeless?

Kelly's parents showed awesome trust and dependence upon God, but doctors did not expect for her to live very long. Surgery and medication could not get rid of all of the tumor, and there was nothing else the doctors could do! But God stepped in and miraculously healed Kelly. Her health continued to improve, and years later, she is still doing well and is serving the Lord in full-time Christian ministry. She has been cancer-free for years.

God delights in answering our prayers, but He does not always answer them immediately or in the way we think they should be answered. In Kelly's case, God chose to answer people's prayers in the way they wanted Him to. Sometimes, God says "yes" to us; sometimes he says "no"; sometimes he says "wait." We can always trust Him to choose the answer that will give Him the most glory and be best for us.

God answers prayer in different ways, but He always answers in a way that shows His power and His goodness.

BIG Christian Word

Faith - (faith)

Faith is a belief that does not need proof or evidence. The greater our knowledge about Christ and the Scriptures, the greater our faith will be. The more we know about Christ the more we can put our trust in him. (Ephesians 2:8-9) "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is a gift of God; Not of works, lest any man should boast."
