Answered Prayers

God supplies all that I need, when I need it, and I am open and receptive to my good. -Unknown

We often pray for help with the present or the future with a nagging sense that we aren't sure whether God hears our prayers or not. One of the fastest ways to remember that God does, indeed, hear our prayers, is to look backwards. When we look back over our history as a history of answered prayers, we experience a sense of optimism and confidence. We expect each new entreaty to add a jot to our abundance. God is inclined to say yes to us, we believe. We know that it is God's true nature to give and our own nature to receive.

Writing quickly, list five prayers that God has answered for you.

  1. Thank you, Julia, for the inspiration. I just put my beloved B&B and Carriage House workshop space on the market. All the old stuff comes up even though I know it’s the right thing to do as my moving on is creating space for God’s work to continue there in what people call “the vortex.” So, thank you.
    (I was with you in Sedona last year at Karen Ely’s place)

  2. 1. An invitation to hang out when I felt lonely.
    2. A job when I needed one.
    3. Someone asking for a drawing when I was reluctant to.
