Your Jesus stories
Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the Lord
"Do not forget the things your eyes have seen"
We are seeking a million testimonies of answered prayer. Deuteronomy 4:9 urges us to 'watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.' As The Wall lives on, so will our testimonies - The Wall will pass our answered prayers down through the generations.
We are searching for a million answered prayers: times where you cried out to God in a situation and He answered. Whether you witnessed a powerful miracle, or have seen God's faithfulness in the everyday; if it was an immediate answer or you have had to wait decades, we want to hear about it. If the answer was exactly what you wanted, not what you expected, or even a no, we still want to hear it. Answered prayers can be up to 500 words. Your testimonies will then be linked to a specific brick that will sit within the physical structure of The Wall, and will be used by God to build the faith of generations, and remind millions of His goodness.

Answered Prayer #12330
In 2014 I dropped out of school. Frustrated, hopeless, no job, rejection, depression, all in. Nothing was working. I fasted and prayed, got back to school, graduated and today am happy, working and living an ever growing and fulfilled life. Indeed my redeemer lives.
Answered Prayer #12213
My daughter suffered regular nightmares and night terrors for many years, starting when she was only about 18 months old. I came to Jesus when she was five and I decided to say a prayer with her each night to ask Jesus to fill her sleep with peaceful dreams. After one week her nightmares had completely stopped and she was sleeping soundly through the night, every night. We still pray together each night and we are so grateful to Jesus for helping her.
Answered Prayer #11552
I had seen people prayed for when they had a limb shorter than the other (and seen the limbs grow) but never dared to risk praying for something like that myself; but in the '80s, we had moved and become involved in a new church which we helped to lead. My wife had damaged her back lifting an old man in whose house we were living. Now she had put her back out again and was in considerable pain. I was teaching in school and arrived home tired and feeling anything but filled with the Spirit. I asked how her back was and she said it was agonising and she wondered if she had one leg shorter than the other. I gulped because it meant I would have to pray for her! We checked her legs carefully (backside up against the back of a chair and her legs lifted up; standing on a book with each foot in turn). Her right leg was about an inch shorter than the left. I closed my eyes because I didn’t dare look and prayed, ‘Lord, You know I haven’t got the faith for this but it’s over to You. Please equalize the legs’. There was a movement and they were the same length! That was in fact the sacroiliac joint going back silently. Over the next months, it went out a few more times, but every time we prayed, it went back. Over the next few years I prayed for a few other people and they were all healed. I have no idea what was the actual healing with each, but they all had legs lengthened. A few years after this, I was visiting an elderly lady in the church and her adult daughter was there. She told me that she was having problems with her dancing lessons as one leg was shorter than the other.
The doctor had told her the only solution was to cut an inch out of her left leg. I was more confident now, so, although she wasn’t a Christian, I told her she didn’t have to do that – God could heal her. She looked surprised but agreed for me to pray. We checked her legs in the same way and I prayed (with my eyes open). Her leg grew in front of my eyes! This was not a joint going back – the leg grew. Her dance teacher immediately noticed the difference. It has been healed ever since. As a science teacher, I wonder how this could happen but I am also grateful that God is able to go beyond science and perform wonders.
