QOTW: Answered Prayers

Have you ever had a prayer answered by your deity? Was it an immediate answer or was it something that you didn't realize had happened until later?

I don't think so, but then the answer may not have been in the form I was expecting...

For me it been both and I've always been pleased with how things turned out.

Oh yes, certainly, and in both ways.

What I usually ask for is safety - whether I am starting on a trip, negotiating with people, looking into a new job. I ask that if it's good for me, to open the doors and let things happen. If it isn't good for me, to not let it happen even if I am working hard on it and it looks good on paper.

Sometimes it doesn't make any sense though!

Hard to answer because I don't really ask for stuff per say but I guess I do ask for strength, wisdom, energy and stuff like that.

Both! Just recently I had to go into my healthcare facility and the parking lot building said "Full." There just isn't sufficient street parking and I would have been late to my appt. So I drove into the parking building anyway. I said out loud, "I leave it up to you, my Goddess." And as I came around the curve, someone backed out just at the right moment. I was early to my appt.! ;)) Also, I asked for YEARS for a small Wiccan group to belong to. First the Goddess drew me to a Unitarian Universalist church, which surprised me, as I wasn't interested in a "church." But I followed Her directive in my intuition, and ended up meeting a few people who wanted to come together to create a small Circle. ;))

I'm not really a religious person, so that's hard for me to answer. I do hear lovely stories about answered prayer all the time though. It's always hard for me to say if that was just what was destined to happen, coincidence, or answered prayer. I guess it's important that everyone just look at it in their own way though.
