Have you had answers to your prayers?

Have you ever prayed for something and had that prayer answered in a strong way?  The western states have been suffering through a drought.  Last winter there wasn't enough snow.  Then there hasn't been enough rain during the summer to make up for last winter.  Thunder storms have triggered forest fires and then to top it off someone set a fire on purpose.  People's homes and businesses have burned down and many more were threatened.  We had been praying for more rain because of the lack of moisture.  Then with this fire threatening homes and sending smoke miles away, it seemed even more important to pray for rain.  When I woke up this morning, it was raining.  It has rained pretty much all day.  This is not normal rain for this area.  It might rain for a couple of hours and then clear up, but today it has rained all day.  The forecast is still for rain all day tomorrow too.  The news reports that the biggest fire is now 78% contained thanks to all the rain.  Answers to prayers can come quickly, like this time.  Sometimes you don't recognize an answer to a prayer until much later.  Sometimes the answer is no.  When you write your story include the times you prayed and the answers to the prayers that you received.
