Answered Prayer

Answered Prayer
My Dad and My 4 Month old Granddaughter
Today was one of answered prayer for our family.  My dad has been fighting a two year long battle with cancer.  We have had a lot of people praying for him.  My 4 month old granddaughter has had a lot of doctors poking on her in her short life.  She can’t see and she has been having trouble with her GI track as well as a couple of other issues.

Dad has not had chemo since the beginning of December.  He had a PET scan this morning and his cancer has significantly reduced; even without chemo.  Answered prayer.

My granddaughter had a procedure this morning to see if there was something wrong with her GI track.  As of this evening we have not heard the results.  That is also answered prayer.


In the first case the Lord gave us more time with dad, a good report, all of the things for which we were asking.  In the second, the Lord told us to wait.  Both of those are answers.

We tend to view no or wait as God not answering prayer.  Those are answers.

We are to be thankful for all three possible answers, yes, no, and wait.
