  2. Great idea keeping a track record of your prayer request. I never thought of that before. More reminders of how faithful God is. 🙂 I also liked your post “too much” back in Feb. I think the comments were closed on that one but I enjoyed it very much.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing such an encouraging truth!

    PS. may I leave my prayer request here? My friends’ 1 years old daughter is undergoing surgery right now in the US. Please pray for the miraculous healing upon her and the strength for the parents. Thank you so much.

  4. Yes and Amen. God does answer prayers that are in accordance to His will. He is neve short of finances.

  5. Prayer is very powerful; the results can be amazing.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking “Ocean Breath.”
