The Word makes it clear that we are to pray and ask of God, that He hears and will answer us. When we pray we are to have an expectation that, if we ask according to God’s will, we will receive from Him what we ask. Every moment, God is in the process of answering prayers of those who call out to Him. We want to give God glory and encourage intercessors, by sharing some stories of what God is doing in answer to prayer. We call these God stories, because these testimonies are all about Him.
