God Answers Prayers: Inspiring True Stories of Faith and Hope

by Allison Bottke

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


The title says it all. Yet, itís the voices of fifty-two people that help to bring this timeless truth to life. Each story is tenderly told and highlights the majesty and mercy of God. These real life situations range from the ordinary to the unusual, and everything in between. Although the people, places and events differ, the steadfast hand of God never wavers.

Every believer longs to have a personal touch from the Lord. These stories are a wonderful reminder of a loving God whom we may call Father. There is also no request too big or too small. A young girl prays for her cat to return home after a yearís absence. A mother pleads for the safety of her daughter who was lost in the woods. And a wife learns that ďnoĒ is also an answer to prayer.

A variety of circumstances are shown. The first person point of view gives these accounts a conversational tone. The people and their situations are made real and the life lessons are rich. Each story is long enough to be memorable, yet short enough to be read in a single sitting.

Have some tissues handy, but also be ready to shout out some praise as the pages turn. This book is all about life and living in a fallen world. But itís also about being lifted up by the Hand of God.

In a world that seems to concentrate on the negatives, this book is a blessing! Itís exciting and encouraging to know that God is entering into peopleís lives in such personal ways Reading this book will give everyone a reason for rejoicing! Ė Joyce Handzo, Christian Book
