There's no doubt that God hears us when we pray. Here are some testimonies of His answers!
"I phoned your PRAYER PARTNER DEPARTMENT and shared a prayer request. I was scheduled to have surgery to remove a kidney stone. I was going to have general anesthesia and was struggling with anxiety and fear about it. That same week I found an article, "LET IT GO!," BY CRAIG HAGIN in the May 2016 Word of Faith magazine. This article provided me with the very answers I needed to help me calm down and have faith that all would go well. It turned out to be just that way. I have been home resting and recovering for one week and I'm getting back to normal health and activities at age 69. I sincerely thank you for joining me in faith and prayer about my surgery and for allowing me to benefit from your teaching." // DAVID

WHEN HOWLING AIR-RAID SIRENS signaled another bombing raid in London during World War II, everyone ran to the nearest air-raid shelter. Everyone, that is, except a certain elderly woman.
The people in her neighborhood were busy during the daytime cleaning up debris and trying to repair damage inflicted by the bombs. At night, they huddled for protection in the air-raid shelters.
After several nights, someone commented that this elderly woman was missing. Some speculated that she had been injured and was in the hospital. Other neighbors wondered if she had been killed. Still others thought she had gone away to the country to escape the bombs.

WE ARE SPIRIT BEINGS, and God communicates with us through our spirit (Rom. 8:16). The Bible teaches that we each possess a soul and live in a body (1 Thess. 5:23). With the body we contact the physical realm. With our spirit, or heart, we contact the spiritual realm.
The soul includes the mind, will, and emotions. Therefore, we contact the intellectual and emotional realms with the soul.
It's easy to define what our body is, because it's the part of us that's visible. It contacts the physical realm—the realm we can touch and observe.

If you've ever thought, "I'm a failure. There's nowhere I can go from here," I have a scripture for you.
I LOVE WHAT the Apostle Paul wrote to the believers at Philippi. "Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Phil. 3:13–14 NKJV).
This scripture tells us that we can forget everything that's behind us—the good and the bad. It's not about what we've done. It's about what we're doing now in Christ. And what we should be doing is living an abundant life.

"The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."
—Isaiah 58:11 (NIV)
WHENEVER WE START a new year, I like to look at it as a blank page. We have a clean slate on which to write new pages of history. As we face each day, it's important to do so with a positive attitude. Often we're held back from accomplishing the things God desires because we're continually looking backwards. We're focusing on past failures or letting our minds dwell on people who've hurt us. I'm amazed when I hear someone say, "I remember what so-and-so did to me 30 years ago. I will never forget it, nor will I ever forgive them for how they treated me."
