No Prayer Is Too Big for God

Sometimes it doesn't feel like God is listening to our prayers. But now and then He powerfully reminds us that He hears our requests and is strong enough to help. What begins as simple faith ends with an astounding gift from our loving heavenly Father.

These true, uplifting stories are from ordinary people experiencing extraordinary help in times of need. While some answers to prayer feel ordinary and go unnoticed, this collection highlights amazing events that could only happen with God's supernatural intervention. With accounts of such things as unexplainable healings and miraculous protection in terrifying situations, this book will inspire you to believe that God can answer even your most "impossible" prayers. 

Let these stories touch your heart, strengthen your faith, and encourage you to pray more than ever before! 

Happy Easter! On this special day of celebration of the One who's risen from death, I want to share this book, Gifts from Heaven with you. This book includes true stories of miraculous answers to prayers, compiled by James Stuart Bell.  These stories may not be relate to your specific journey, but it too speak of the love our Lord Jesus bestows on us. He listens! God listens! And He will answer our prayers, though it may not be what we expected, but He will answer.  Inspiring, encouraging and calming, these stories from ordinary people will speak to you, some more than others, but it will. I particularly like the fact that not all stories are easy breezy. There were struggles, not the struggles of what the author was praying about, but struggles to have the faith to believe that your prayers will be answered. Isn't that common for us, even those that have committed for years? Faith can seem easy, but sometimes it may be the hardest thing to acknowledge and truly trust. As Thomas Brooks said, prayers is the gate to heaven. Pray, seek and let Him into your life to carry your burdens with you.

In all Gifts from Heaven spoke of the gifts of answered prayers in our lives. Our Lord Jesus is a gift to us. Will you accept Him?
