Faith Madison is the very picture of a sophisticated New Yorker. Slim, blonde, stylish, married to a successful merchant banker and having raised two daughters, Faith has a life many would envy. But Faith has overcome a childhood marred by tragedy, and has carried within herself a secret she could divulge to no-one. The sudden death of her stepfather sets off a journey of change and revelation. At the funeral, painful memories flood back - and an old friend re-enters Faith's life.

As these two childhood friends rediscover each other, Faith is finally ready to face the most painful step of all: of sharing a secret that has long been haunting her, and opening up her heart for the first time in her life.
Answered Prayers teaches you 24 Biblical things that you can do to get answers to your prayers. This Christian ebook also uses examples from people like Jesus, Jehoshaphat, Hezekiah, Daniel and Ezra who had their prayers answered to teach you how to pray effectively.
Although Truman Capote’s last, unfinished novel offers a devastating group portrait of the high and low society of his time. Tracing the career of a writer of uncertain parentage and omnivorous erotic tastes, Answered Prayers careens from a louche bar in Tangiers to a banquette at La Côte Basque, from literary salons to high-priced whorehouses. It takes in calculating beauties and sadistic husbands along with such real-life supporting characters as Colette, the Duchess of Windsor, Montgomery Clift, and Tallulah Bankhead. Above all, this malevolently finny book displays Capote at his most relentlessly observant and murderously witty.
This book contains true accounts of times God allowed 'pray-ers' to see answers. We offer these stories as praise to God. Written in ink, on paper, they won't be easily forgotten. As you read them, you will not only be encouraged to pray more; you may ask God to open your eyes to His answers.
In 1992, God had placed a vision in a grandmother's heart that if I would come to Johnson Street and teach the Bible to children His Word would supernaturally change their lives. She did not know when she asked me teach that one little boy in the first Bible Club would name the ministry Keeping Hope Alive, and it would become a non-profit Christian organization. The ministry would travel the world teaching children in orphanages and in the slums of Kenya about God's love, seeing over five-thousand children give their hearts to Jesus and touched by God's Presence. She did not know that when children start to pray that murders stop, parents get off drugs, and families are restored. The vision of one grandmother, Virginia Barbee, changed the world for Jesus. This book tells the stories of how God came and answered the prayers of the children with supernatural healings and miracles.
Prayer is a two way communication. Jesus at the tomb of lazarus prayed and got instant answers. When you pray and do not get results you are likely to get frustrated and before long Prayer would become an arduous task for you. Gradually you would give up praying. Do not give up. The devil is a liar. A Prayerlessnes Christian is a Powerless Christian. Jesus Christ throughout his ministry here on earth engaged actively in Prayer. Where there is no wood the fire would go out. Do not let your fire go out. Beloved the more Prayer, the More of his Glory, the more of his Glory, the more Power. Christianity is warfare and not funfare. Do not give up in the place of Prayer. God is more than eager to answer your Prayers more than you can ever imagine. In Isaiah 65 v 24 "It shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. That is Gods promise to his children. It is not your length of Prayers that matters, what matters is, are you communicating. For instance you pick up a phone, to make a call, you would check if there is a dialing tone, then afterwards you dial your number, then you wait for a response / reply. Before Elijah prayed on Mount Carmel, he took certain steps and afterward when he prayed he got an instant answer, the fire fell and the glory of God came down. To every door, there is a key to open it. Through the pages of this book, you would find out laid down principles from the bible which would enable you to Pray and get answers to your Prayers. Enough of praying amiss. Enough of struggling in your prayer life. It is time to pray and hit targets to get your desired results. It is time to rend the heavens open with the right Prayer. Reposition yourself and get ready to experience the supernatural, in the place of Prayer. Amen
God presents Himself in the Bible as being open and interested in hearing whatever concerns His children (James 5:13; 1 Pet. 5:7). He wants to hear whatever interests us, even the smallest, most insignificant details of our lives. Consequently, we should feel free to unburden our hearts and tell God anything and everything. He is, after all, the friend who sticks closer than a brother. Why do we not feel at liberty to converse with Him just as casually and comfortably as we would with our most intimate acquaintance? To address this important phenomenon of talking to God, I felt the leading of the Lord to confront the matter of getting answers to our prayers. Unless you are a Pharisee standing in the marketplace, no one prays just to hear himself praying or to receive glory from man. No one prays not to receive a response. No one asks, not expecting to receive. Rather, prayers are prayed to be acknowledged and answered. Especially prayers without ceasing are made for responses, acknowledgment, and answers, without ceasing. Time and maturity have taught me that to pray without ceasing basically refers to recurring prayer, not nonstop talking. Thus, it is to be our way of life, as we should be continually in an attitude of prayer.
God wants to answer our prayers, because He loves us and wants to bless us and meet us at the points of our needs. And He says, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (Matt. 7:7-8). But are there some things which are required from us in order to have our prayers answered and our requests met? We will see the answer to this question in this book.
