Stories from PrayerWorks

  • Prayer for Jason – He was airlifted to East Texas Medical Center-Tyler for treatment of his injuries. He was in an accident with an 18 wheeler. Thank you for your prayers for healing! (His family and friends)
  • God answered! Praise God! Our House is under contract! It’s only being on the market for 2 weeks. It’s also being sold to someone that happens to go to our church!
  • It is a miracle! Thank you! Many of you prayed for my son and my request that he would get help with his addiction. It is a miracle! He is willing to get help and he is now in the process of detoxing at a treatment center. I know without the Lord and prayer this never would have happened! Thank you and God bless you for supporting us in prayer!!!
  • To submit a Prayer, Go Here! To submit a Story of Praise, Go Here!

Good Friends (that’s you!),
