In August, 2006, my son Jason, a Captain in the Army, was deployed to Iraq. Ever since, when I see a magazine article about Iraq, I read it with great interest. So when I noticed the July, 2007 issue of Guideposts contained an article on prayers for a soldier son, I read it with great interest. Imagine my surprise to see you describing my son's unit - 82nd Airborne, Task Force 1-319 out of Ft. Bragg! I immediately ordered your book, and began to read of the amazing prayer answers. During Jason's deployment, I prayed for him and his platoon every day, and after reading your article, prayed for Chris and his platoon also. I also kept in touch with Lea Johnson of the Family Readiness Group at Ft. Bragg through emails she distributed to all the families, including information on their return dates. Therefore, I knew the 1-319th was arriving in groups over several days, and wondered if your son Chris would be on the same plane with my son Jason. However I didn't see Chris' name on the manifest for Jason's plane. On October 20th Jason's plane returned to Ft. Bragg, greeted by a crowd of cheering and joyfully weeping family members. While spending a few wonderful days with Jason, I checked my email, and noticed your email to the distribution list for the family members of soldiers in the 1-319th, asking if anyone knew which plane Chris was on, so you could make travel plans. Since I knew Lea was making all the contacts with family members, I immediately emailed her to be sure she had seen your email, and offering to give her your contact information from the back of your book if she needed it. Several days later she called my cell phone, asking for the information, because she needed to notify you that Chris' plane was arriving that day, but 2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. She already had all the contact information I had from your book, but she hadn't heard back from you, so, I immediately began to pray that somehow you would get the information and be on time for Chris' arrival, since I knew you wanted very much to be in that cheering and joyfully weeping crowd just as I had a few days earlier. When I saw Lea a few days later, I asked her whether you had made it on time, and was relieved to hear her say that my prayer had been answered, and you'd arrived on time to greet Chris' plane! God cares about all the details of our lives!

13 years ago i became pregnant with my second son. I was separated from my husband and this was not his child i was carrying. My family was deeply disappointed but especially my mom who tended to have a rather sharp word for you when she was upset. I was scared and alone with my 5 year old son from my marriage. Not knowing what to do i fell into a deep depression. I just existed. I prayed for help constantly but i felt God had turned his back on me like my mom. One night i dreamed i was in a huge warehouse walking around and a man came up to me and embrace me and suddenly his face was that of my step grandfather who had died about a year earlier. We s wersurrounded by bright white light and he was at least three feet taller than me. With a warm loving smile he said "everything is going to be ok. Everything is going to be alright." and he let me go.he transformed into a strange man and left. Now 12 years later my silly trumpet player is in middle school. I asked for help and i got the encouraging woneedhear.

Just reading your excellent book. Reminded me of a situation on 1st february this year in Nelson New Zealand. I have been sufering from a condition called plexopathy of the lumbar plexus for some months, (basically a disruption of nerve endings or something). I belong to the Nelson Baptist Church and had called into the church to pick up a key, no one else was on the premises. Coming out, I went down a slope from the church office and fell. Because of the condition, I simply could not get up. It was raining and I was on my hands and knees in the wet. There was nothing around me to haul myself up with, and no people. After a few moments a car suddenly came into the car park and a young man, probably late twentie,got out. He came straight over to me, asked if he could help, puicked me up and set me on my way. Then he got back in his car and drove off. I was astounded - why had he come into the car patrk? I was not really visible from the road. I thought he had come into the car park to visit a business office next door, but driving away immediately disproved this. I was frightened and helpless and a stranger came into my life and helped me out. Several people since have suggested that this was an angel. Think what you like, but it was an answer to a desperate prayer. Alan Roberts

This is my sons second tour to Iraq. He's in the 82nd Airborne Division Loyalty out of Fort Bragg and my other son is in Iraq also Airborne from Fort Richardson, Alaska. They are safe, because and watched over, because I've been taught to pleed the blood of Jesus over them day and night just as the blood was put over the door mantel and the death angel only went to the Egyptians and passed Gods people by. The blood is what keeps us safe from harm and I as a Mother of two in Iraq keep it applied for my boys and all of our Heros over there fighting for freedom.

Although my best friend and I have had many situations where we didn't agree, Gods healing was always one of them. So when we found out she had lung cancer we prayed that God would heal her of this affilction, and she did go into remission for about 1 year. But last year it came back with a vengance and again I prayed that God would heal my friend and he did, His way not our way. He took June home on June 7th and she was more then ready to go, she was willing to go with God for a long ,long time. While others prayed for a Mirical Healing I prayed for God to just heal her how ever He thought was the right way and He did. she went to be with Him with her family and friends surrounding her at home and not in a cold Hospital. Thank You God for this answered Prayer.

God answered my prayer for help in my arts class. I was worried about passing and was not prepared for the final exam. The instructor was late30-45 mins., so we only had to take the 1st half of the test, which was given a week earlier. Otherwise, I don't know what would have happened. I got a B in the class. The only way to explain it is God.

I recently requested prayer and the very same day, during my daily time with God, a verse in my reading in My Utmost For His Highest, by Oswald Chambers, leapt out at me: " You may have to watch Jesus wreck a life before he saves it. " Matthew 10:34. This seemed to tell me that my work with them is done and that now I must let God work on them. This is something that has always been hard for me to do: to let go and let God. But I trust God and I know that he will watch over them. Thank you all! Thank you, Lord!!
