Today is National Day of Prayer, so I thought it was fitting to reflect on prayers answered. Here is one that gave me goose-bumps. It was several years ago when my husband and I were trying to sell our home place in order to build on another piece of property we had had the opportunity to purchase. (Those circumstances constitute another answered prayer.) But we had not received any offers after a year on the market. So we remodeled the house with the intention of making it more appealing to a potential buyer; if not, more appealing for us to continue to live in. It was March. I distinctly recall that in my devotional and prayers one morning, I told the Lord that if it wasn’t His will for us to sell, then I was okay with that.

After all, we never want anything for us that isn’t within His will. But I added that if it IS within His will and it does sell, please not to let it sell until the end of June, as those next couple of months were quite intense in my business. So I let it go. I left it in His hands and quit fretting.

On June 30, I was headed to the San Antonio airport where I would be finishing up my fiscal year’s business activity when my cell phone rang. I answered, and it was our realtor telling me he had a contract on our place! Whoa! Are you kidding me?! It was the end of June. How much more specific can a prayer be answered? You can be certain that I immediately praised God with awe and humble thanks!

This is just one example. There are countless others; in fact, I try to remember to praise God for blessings I don’t even realize I’ve been given, like the car accident I could have experienced but for a second’s difference. And I’ve learned that if we walk in His Word, we can find blessings in crises and in sadness. Romans 5: 3-5 reminds us to praise God for the better place He’s taking us as a result of the problems we might right now be encountering.

Praise God today and pray for His Hand to heal our society and our government.
