AB Writes: Thank you all for praying for my step daughter, Mandy, and her son, George. George has been discharged from the mental hospital and will be in an outpatient program for 6 months to a year. I babysat him yesterday and he said, "nothing will ever make me want to hurt myself again." He said he feels calmer inside and his brain is working better. He is able to put things into words instead of acting out and being self destructive. Praise the Lord for His power. May God bless each of you who have prayed for my family.
TH Writes: I asked for prayer for employment back in mid September, and at the beginning of October, God opened a door for me to work as a substitute teacher. I thank you for your prayers because I know and believe that the effectual fervent prayers of the righteous availeth much.
AS Writes: Praise God for you Ms. Germaine and His Ministry He's given you for His people. I sent you a prayer request this 11th day of September 2008 for my heavy heart and concern of my husband wanting to move us back to Detroit, MI. We'll Praise be to God that while I was reading all of the testimonials my heart began to lighten. I have the 25th Anniversary Edition of PTAM that I received from my First Lady on 1-20-06 at a S.W.A.T (Strong Women Armed In God) meeting. I Praise God for what He's already done in His precious Son's name Jesus!!! God bless & love you:-)
MF Writes: I usually try to pray in the spirit for at least an hour or more, and asked God to lead me in who He needed to help that day. It was overwhelming, but b/c those individuals reached out, I felt it was important enough to ask others to join in as we bombard Heaven for an answer to their prayer requests.
Please know that your ministry has been a blessing for Many, many people over the years , esp. in my own life. At one of my darkest hours (divorce, custody battle in 1989), my prayer partner Barbara handed me one of your mother's Yellow "Prayers that Availeth Much" books and said "Michelle I can listen to you and hear what your heart is crying out, but I can't fix it, only Jesus can. If you pray His word, He will answer you".
-Lo and behold from that day to this, I became a licensed minister, prayer intercessor and have actively serve now as volunteer minister in Dallas praying hundreds of prayers using God's word over people's lives, Striving to get to a point of praying in the spirit at least 1 hour or more, per day.
-Sending people the links for prayer to address specific needs from www.prayers.org to teach them how to pray too
-Bought and sowed at least 70+ or more (yellow, blue, green-business, Combined volumes I-III, Prayers for Teens, Women, Mothers, etc...) to so many people I can't count, using your prayer models over and over to teach others to pray God's word, the way someone taught me. Prayers of the Righteous truly do Avail Much
God is faithful and we give Him praise for this ministry teaching us how to pray the Word of God effectively, and accurately with expectation, signs and wonders following.
My prayer for you is that God's abundant Grace, Mercy faithfulness and blessings be upon you and your Prayer Ministry continue to reach and change the lives of others as we learn "How to Pray Effectively" and not Amiss so we can reach Heaven's supply for what Jesus already died to provide for each and everyone one of us.
DW Writes: God used Prayers That Avail Much, to teach me how to pray His Word into a horrible situation where my daughter was
living with a man in an severely abusive relationship. God gave me a gift of faith by using this book to pray my daughter out of hell. It took 2 years of
praying, and my daughter suffered under her burden of sin. I had to love her enough, with God's love not mine, to allow her to suffer consequences, while never shaming her. Fast forward 5 years now-she is still free of that man, free of shame, guilt, debt, depression, oppression, and she is so blessed in EVERY area of life. The blessing is flowing down freely-all restrictions are moved out of the way. Her first blessing was a middle management job with an immediate $8000 raise, and now she is going into senior management. God's Word will not return void-it works! Thank you God for your gift to Germaine!
RD Writes: Dear Germaine,
Your "Prayers that avail much" series have helped us immensely.
My wife and I have been praying certain prayers from your book for over a year now. Perhaps it was the guidance of the Holy Spirit that led us to 'stumble' upon an important piece of information that had the potential to change our lives forever.
We prayed over it and then decided to apply for migration to Australia. This is a long process - it takes around 3 to 4 years to be granted 'Permanent
Resident' status. Throughout the entire process, we would recite the 'Finding favour with others', 'Rejoice in the Lord' and 'Adoration - Hallowed be thy
name' prayers from your book not just once but a number of times daily. We learnt that our victory lay not in 'begging' and 'pleading' for an answer, but
in learning to declare God's Word aloud over our project and then keep praising God for the answer which was ours by faith.
I am absolutely delighted to inform you that we have just been granted our Australian Permanent Resident (PR) status in a record 9 months!! We have seen with our own eyes the FAVOUR of God and how He has accelerated things for us. We give God all the credit and we acknowledge Him for this GREAT victory.
Throughout the entire process, we found God arranging things, people and circumstances because of which 'all things (the good and the not so good) worked together for our good'.
Now, we can truly say "This is the Lord's doing, it is a marvel in our eyes."
Thank you Germaine for your wonderful books which have been such a blessing to us. God bless you and your ministry.
TB Writes: I thank my Father in heaven! I was so worried about my test results. I tested Negative for Anemia, (I have had anemia
for the last 8 years and now it's gone), HIV, and STDs, I tested positive for antibodies for Herpes - which means the virus is dormant in my body for the last 6-12 months. My next prayer is for it to remain dormant for the rest of my life and leave my body in the name of Jesus. I reached out prayers.org community for a prayer regarding what is going on in my life and prayed to God believing he would answer my prayers. I have a couple more tests to do. I believe all things are possible and God does answer prayers.....
God Bless you for being available at all times for prayer......
PF Writes: I requested prayer for my great nephew's healing on Tues, June 12, 2012 at about 3:00am and when I saw him at 7:20am God had already healed his little body. I thanked God even before the healing. I wanted his parents to see what a miracle working God I serve. I see God's hand in this family and I know it won't be long before they both surrender their lives to God. Thank you Prayer Warriors in Christ Amen, In Jesus Name.
MH Writes: I asked for prayer for my relationship with my mother in law, she was always getting in my husband's business. Well God sent a man into my mother in law's life, that she knew 30 years ago in her life, his wife had passed. So they started going to church together. Now my mother in law is so happy. Her eyes light up like a christmas tree. All I can say Thank you Jesus. Thank you all for your prayers. What Mighty God we serve. God is Awesome.
JJ Writes: Yes, I prayed the prayer for employment and God blessed me with a job that same day. Praise God! Thank you for your faithful service.
FD Writes: I praise God for this ministry. It is a great resource for me. I visit the CONNECT IN PRAYER everyday for the DAILY PRAYER AND PRAYER SEARCH LINKS. I have done this routine for months before sending in my prayer request concerning a court case. I asked for God to speak for me and He did! I won the case against the Federal Government. I thank God for giving me victory and I thank Ms Germaine and the prayer team for
praying with me.
MM Writes: I SENT A PRAYER REQUEST FOR OUR DAUGHTER TO BE ADMITTED IN A GOOD SCHOOL AFTER COMPLETING STANDARD EIGHT. I AM GLAD TO SEND A PRAISE REPORT TO YOU TO SAY GOD IS FAITHFUL AND HE ANSWERED OUR PRAYERS AND GAVE HER A NATIONAL SCHOOL. PRAISE BE TO OUR GOD IN THE HIGHEST. MANY MANY THANKS TO YOU ALL.
DD Writes: Thank you very much for your prayers. It really means alot. I enjoy visiting your website and using different prayers that are scriptural, It helps because I'm not that eloquent of a speaker, and at times I don't always know what to pray for. Thank God for the Holy Spirit who intercedes and helps us in our weaknesses!!
Please continue to lift us up in prayer and pray that the Lord may open a door for me to find the right job. Thank you. God bless.
FA Writes: Thank you so very much for your ministry - I praise and thank God for you. I recently received a truly miraculous answer to prayer regarding my desperate job situation. I prayed specifically the prayer for employment from "Prayers that avail much" - it had become abolutely imperative that I secured another job offer in order to be able to resign from my current role whre things had reached crisis point. I kept getting short-listed for roles yet losing out on the job offer at the end of interviews, despite being a strong candidate and despite receiving positive feedback from my interviewe s. So I started fasting and praying about a specific job with a specific company. I would pray and actually name that company - and against all the odds, the job offer came through! God made me wait and the waiting was not easy - my faith was tested and I reached the absolute depths of despair. But I continued to pray as we have no other hope but God - and He has done it! Germaine's scripturally based prayers are powerful. God's word never returns to us void. When we pray according to his will, he will answer us and grant us our requests. I hope that others are encouraged by my testimony - praise God!
IE Writes: I want to express a deeply felt appreciation by saying thank you to all of the Word Ministeries family. The daily prayers e- mailed to me has been strengthening and I see it each day as a channel GOD breathes on me each day. May GOD almighty bless your ministry mightifully in JESUS blessed name. Amen.
LS Writes: For a long time I have been asking God to spend someone to be my spiritual mentor. Someone who was nurturing and could listen and understand my on going battle with anxiety attacks without being judgmental. I was in church and the holy spirit told me to talk to this woman. The next Sunday I hesitated and didn't talk, but this Sunday I did and not only was her fully understanding of my situation but gave me many references in ways I can begin strengthen my walk and using the word to fight my fears!! Praise God!
MW Writes: Thank you for prayers. I put for prayer so God would answer for my energy bill. I got a check in the mail to help out. PTL.
GW Writes: I submitted a request for promotion back in July or August. Not soon after I received a raise/promotion from the company. God is awesome.
DT Writes: I purchased vol 1 prayers that avail much from the bookstore at church in 2006. I was tired of the dating the wrong type of man. I wanted and deserved my BOAZ!!!! Even when I did not see results I still read the prayer for a single female and spoke him into existence. I am proud to say November 28,2009 I married my Boaz. I gave the book to a friend to use. I have purchased the commemorative edition today.
JC Writes: Thank you so much for your prayers! I asked you to pray for an urgent financial need. Already, in the last two days, money has come in from unexpected sources, enough to cover two serious obligations. What a nice surprise! He is so faithful!
Please continue to pray, as there are many more things overdue and no job yet. I don''t want to give in to worry now! But this is so exciting! He has again provided and restored my hope. Thank you for your help. Many blessings to you all.
BL Writes: I truly want to thank this ministry for praying for me. I am definitely beginning to feel God''s healing touch, and am seeing tremendous progress in my walk with Him, and also wanted to mention my weight is coming down fast since I sent in a request for my weight problem I've been struggling with for over half my life. I would like to request that you all keep praying for me since some of these problems won' t be resolved over night, but through God's spirit and grace, I believe I can get completely well again as it was in the days of my youth.
Dear Germaine Copeland,
I am a missionary in Japan. Missionaries sometimes have opportunity to feel
isolated and alone. Sometimes when we report to our supporters back home, we
feel they don‚t want to hear about the struggles, only about the victories.
But I want to make this report of both a struggle and a victory.
I have had my copy of Prayers That Avail Much Commemorative Edition for 20
years and I wanted to let you know that this little book has not just been a
blessing but it has been a life saver more than once. About 18 years ago, I
was attacked with panic/anxiety disorder. The devil did his best to convince
me that I would have a complete nervous breakdown and that I would be
helpless to defend against it. My mind was in such a state of terror that I
could not put two positive thoughts together, all I could do was walk the
floor and read the prayers from the book over and over again. At first, I
couldn‚t even say I was praying them, just reading them, many times
screaming them through desperate tears, hour after hour. I don‚t know how
many times I went through the book. I would pray in tongues and read the
prayers. Gradually, that oppression began to lift. I began to really get
hold of what I was saying. Then I began to take authority over that spirit
that was trying to destroy me. The Word of God truly is quick and powerful,
sharper than any two edged sword. Recently, after all these years, I was
attacked with the same thing. Again, I took up the book and began repeating
those prayers with the devil doing his best to convince me that it wouldn‚t
work like it did before. You know he was right, it worked even better.
I just want to thank God and you for the work that you have been doing
through the years. You probably have no idea how many people you have
blessed and how many lives have been saved. God Bless you.
TM Writes: Couple months ago, I submit a prayer request for the rennovation of my house. Praise the Lord, He answered our prayers.Today, my house is complete. Please continue pray for us(family) to walk closer with our wonderful Lord.
BS Writes: For almost 5 years my husband and I tried to fall pregnant. I went through many treatments and after 2 very stressful IVF`s I went online and asked as many people as possible to pray that the 3 time would be a winner. Thanks to all those people who read my request online and prayed for my pregnancy and safe delivery, we now have our 7 month old miracle in our arms. She is a true image of health and she is the answer to all those prayers. Thank you so much, and most of all, thank God. We intend on trying IVF one last time early 2009, so I will soon again come and ask for your prayers.
AS Writes: I sent in a prayer request two days ago for our CEO of our Credit Union to receive peace and satisfaction for our new conversion that's currently taking place. When I walked into work this morning I heard him say with great expectation in his voice that we may be ok. That was a totally different spirit from before I asked for prayer. Thank you so much:-)
AD Writes: I wish to share the great thing the Lord has done in my life.
My husband, Alex, is having his own truck which he ply on National Permit. Few days back he brought material from one city to be delivered in another part of the country. In hiw way back home, his truck met with an accident due to which the material was held-up and could not be delivered to the party on account of the legal formalities to be completed for the accident he met ( of course there was not fault of his and the man dashed his truck's rear wheel ).
After completing all the formalities, he come to our native place and wanted to deliver the material in his truck but some how or the other one problem of the other cropped-up and the delay in delivering the material to the party started taking place and it was nearly 12 days that the material could not be delivered.
Transporters asked us to pay an amount of Rs.8000.00 to 10000.00 to empty the material. We had only Rs.5000.00 with us.
Both me and my husband were in panic on account of the above as we would have to pay the demurrage on account of the delay and our financial condition is very very weak and could not bear the financial burden upon us.
We were very very upset, Each day we prayed to the Lord and would get up in the morning with a hope that the material would be delivered but Satan played a great role in bringing hinderances in our way to prevent the material to be delivered.
Many of the Lay-people prayed for us and we kept on praying to the Lord.
Yesterday, the Lord had pity upon us.
My husband, with great faith upon the Lord, spoke to the broker who gave us the material to be delivered and lo, the Lord wiped away our tears and where people were asking for Rs.8000.00 or Rs.10000.00 for delivering the material, The broker was ready to deliver the material to the party for only Rs.3000.00
What a great miracle the compassionate Lord showed towards us.
He proved true to his words : " I WILL NEVER LEAVE U NOR FORSAKE , I AM A PRAYER-ANSWERING GOD".
I give all glory and praise to the Lord who heard our prayers and brought us out of the no-hope situation.
Thank U Jesus, Love U Jesus.
CP Writes: Hello Dear Friend and Happy Belated Birthday!
I call you "Dear Friend" because you have been such an important part of my life for so very long. I have been teaching at our Ministry Training School this past week on prayer. I shared with them the joy of finding your very first book and how excited I was when I accompanied my husband on a trip to Atlanta. The plan was for me to have time alone to pray while he attended a conference. I had my "Prayers That Avail Much" with me. When I walked to the elevator I saw the sign for Word Ministries Prayers That Avail Much Conference. We knew it was a divine appointment. Vicki Jamison was there ministering words of knowledge through song. The exciting part in seeing her there was that while we were on our honeymoon years before, we went to one of Vicki's meeting in Los Angeles. I always encourage the students to purchase your books and take them with them where ever they go. My sister-in-law recently emailed to tell me how she pulled out her trusty Prayers That Avail Much when she was facing a very emotional situation. Your books are like old friends!
I enjoyed reading your journal. Your comment about hearing someone say that writing is like praying caught my attention. When I first got saved my heart was so strong for missionaries. I used to sit and write out prayers for them, just like in the books. This was in the mid 1970's. Sometimes I would write 40 letters a week.
I am so thankful for your ministry. You have blessed my life for almost 20 years now. You helped grow the seed for prayer within me.
My prayer for you is that you will be blessed beyond measure.
Lots of love, CP
SR Writes: I was drawn to Germaine Copeland's book Prayers that avail much for Daily Living. I am recently reborn in the Lord, and this book, along with the Holy Bible, has been a true inspiration to me. I can not express to you how important I find this book and the prayers included. Thank you so much for this!
If possbile I would like to ask Germaine where these beautiful prayers originated? If they are from your heart, then we have similar desire, as so many of these prayers touch me, and the many people that I have shared these with recently. I especially like the opening prayer on pages 1 and 2, it is so eloquent and calming and beautiful, and this is now part of my morning routine. Thank you again!
JB Writes: Your beautiful books have meant so much to me over the years! I have enjoyed giving them as gifts as someone did for me in 2001. I'm excited about your Prayers That Avail Much that is now available on CD. I am placing my order tonight--with delight! :-)
God richly bless and reward you!

JT Writes: Germaine, I briefly attended your Bible Study many years ago while in Atlanta. I am so glad to have stumbled upon your website and see that you are still ministering the Lord's grace so freely. We give your books to ALL young Christians and watch as they grow and blossom into prayer warriors. I will always love and appreciate your unselfish, kind, gentle, loving spirit. Even though we barely met, you have been one of the greatest people-blessings of my life!
AD Writes: I WISH TO TESIFY THE WONDERFUL MIRACLE THE LORD HAS DONE IN THE LIFE OF MY SON AND OF COURSE, IN OUR LIVES ALSO. OUR 7 YEARS OLD SON, ALLAN, LACKS CONCENTRATION AND DOES NOT SPEAK FULLY AS A CHILD OF HIS AGE SPEAKS. THOUGH HE HAS GOT SHARP BRAINS AND A VERY GOOD INTELLEGENCE, HE DOES NOT SIT FOR A LONG TIME IN ONE PLACE AND KEEP MURMURING SOMETHING OR THE OTHER ALL THE TIME. HIS 1ST STANDARD EXAMS GAVE OVER ON THE 8THOF APRIL THIS YEAR AND TODAY WAS HIS RESULTS. MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT THAT HE WILL NOT FARE WELL IN HIS EXAMS. MAY HUSBAND AND I USED TO PRAY DAILY DURING HIS EXAMS THAT HE SHOULD SIT AND WRITE HIS PAPERS. TODAY HE STOOD 19TH IN CLASS AMONGST 60 CHILDREN OF HIS CLASS WITH 71%. AS FAR AS ALLAN IS CONCERNED WE ARE FULL OF GRATITUDE THAT THE LORD HAS HELPED HIM TO WRITE HIS EXAMS AND WHERE NORMAL CHILDREN, WHO COULD READ, WRITE AND SPEAK NORMALLY ARE MUCH BEHIND HIM IN EXAMS. OUR HEARTS ARE FULL OF GRATITUTDE TOWARDS THE COMPASSION SHOWED BY THE GOOD LORD UPON ALLAN AND HELPED HIM TO WRITE EXAMS AND PASS OUT WITH 71%. WE ARE SURE THAT ONE DAY THE LORD WILL FULLY HEAL ALLAN AND HE WILL START TALKING FULLY AS OTHER CHILDREN OF HIS AGE. THANK U SO MUCH FATHER FOR ALL THAT U HAVE DONE IN ALLA'S LIFE.

KM Writes: I submitted a prayer request regarding my husband who has a history of cancer and autoimmune problems. His bleeding has subsided significantly- praise God! and his blood counts have risen a little bit. The Dr. has a wait and see approach. I am believing that he will not have to be on the medication for long - it is very toxic. I am also praying that my husband will seek true Divine Health, letting go of the attitudes and emotions that ensnare him. His eyes will be opened if we continue to pray, saints!

Thank You so much for taking care of me and my Family. GOd Bless you.
IR Writes: To Germaine and fellow prayer warriors. I cannot express my gratitude and love towards you in letting God lead you to write Prayers that avail much. From my daughter being born healthy when doctors said she would be mental retarded, to victory in my marriage, to health in my body, soul and mind, your prayers, our prayers to God changed my life. I use your example and I pray the word. When I pray a prayer in your book, whether it is for someone else or myself, I see the results through the anointing. I am at tears because I bought your book in 1998 and I have had it every since then. I even bought by sister in law a copy and she is saved today. I mean a powerful woman of God. Germaine continue to pray for me that I be what God would have me to be. I seek his peace in the times of storm and I need his guidance as I go through this life's journey. God bless you and it is no accident that your book of prayers landed in my life. I am so glad I visited your website.
