A few months ago God answered a prayer.
I have it posted here.

This was no joke. I am wondering has anybody else asked God for a sign and had it answered.
Be honest!
btw what do you make of this was it a sign or coincidence?

Hi Science guy!
I don't know anything about green babies, but I do know about answered prayer! God "talks" to me all the time. Check out this thread:

When I came upon your question about whether God answers prayers, I was, ironically, listening to a song that answered exactly that question. The song is by an American folk-rock musician named Dan Bern. While many not know his work, all that I can say is that he has an international cult following. Currently being produced by Ani DiFranco's indie label, Dan does quite a bit of touring across North America and Europe.

But, back to this song of Dan's, "The Good News and the Bad News About God"

Dan Bern - Good News and Bad News About God
Song Lyrics

I got good news and bad news to tell you about God
Good news and bad news to tell you all about God
The good news is he answers every single prayer
Isn't that fantastic?
Every single prayer!
But God has an awful lot of time on his hands
God has an awful lot of time on his hands
And God has a backlog of prayers to be answered
That streches from Miami to the far side of Neptune
You see when you say a prayer
It goes into a filofax and usually sits there for three million years
When God finally gets to it
He takes it out and looks at it
He leans back in his leather chair
Considers it and ruminates and coughs and clears his throat
And meanwhile another 55,000 years have now gone by
And when finally grants your prayer,
Your simple request
For nice weather for your mother's Sunday game of tennis
Your mother's long dead and you're long dead
And your entire species is often-times extinct
Or has often left the planet
Or evolved into a creature that lives only in a dome
And does not require sunshine to play tennis
They say God works in mysterious ways
God does not work in mysterious ways
God is predictable
God is organized
But God has a lifetime that's so very very LONG
Compared to yours or mine
It's like if you were a bug and you crawled around the world
And you did it again and again and again and again
Like trillions of times 'till your tiny little tracks
Created so much erosion that the earth looked like a
Sphere with its center strip cut out
Like a humungous yo-yo
Lying on its side
That's like an afternoon stroll before dinner for God
In the cenezoic age a long time ago
An austrolopithicus, that is to say a monkey
Was trying to run away from a wooly rhinocerous
And while he was being chased
He wished that the heavens would open up and give
That wooly rhinocerous a great big sunburn
He was not exactly sure how to say melanoma or hole in the ozone!
But the sentiment was there
The prayer was there
They say God works in mysterious ways
He doesn't work in mysterious ways
It's just that God has an awful lot of time on his hands
God has an awful lot of time on his hands
God has an awful lot of time on his hands
And incidentally, if you think God is old, you ought to see his parents
Down in south Florida
God has an awful lot of time on his hands
God has an awful lot of time on his hands
God has an awful lot of time on his hands
God has an awful lot of time

BT,
I haven't heard of D. Bern, but those lyrics were some of the most creative ones Iv'e read in a long time. I hope Hastings has his CDs.

To the topic; I used to try and make deals with God in my prayers. No wonder my prayers weren't answered. I always reneged on my part of the deal. Times have changed.

The other day I was sitting downstairs reading Bruce Wilkinson’s “The Prayer of Jabez.” Right in the middle of the book, he quoted Exodus 33:18 which says, “Now Moses said, ‘Show me Your glory.’”
The stereo was on upstairs and I could barely hear it, but right at the EXACT moment that I read the phrase “show me your glory,” the song “Show Me Your Glory” by Third Day was playing and that same phrase played at the EXACT same moment that I read the phrase in the book! Talk about showing me His glory!!!

on another occasion~
As I was reading my devotionals one day, this verse was included:
Matthew 11:28-30, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (NKJ)
The song “Carry Me” by Amy Grant was on the radio upstairs; the lyrics go “Lay down your burden, I will carry you, I will carry you, my child…”

Just as I read the word ‘burden’ in the verse, the word ‘burden’ from the song played at the exact same moment!

You know why that is? God is partial to atheists, he pays a little extra time looking after them.

Seriously, I have had every prayer I have made in at least the last 15 years answered. And that is hundreds of prayers.
Of course, my prayer is quite simple.
"thank you, and thy will be done."
If there is a God, thats all I want to say to him.

God has spent the last year smacking me in the back of the head, and not answering anything I asked him for, so I'm rapidly giving up on religion and asking for things.
