Zechariah and Elizabeth desperately wanted a child but were old and had not been able to fall pregnant. While Zechariah was serving in the temple, an angel appeared to him and told him, “Zechariah, don’t be afraid. Your prayer has been heard by God. Your wife Elizabeth will give birth to a baby boy, and you will name him John. You will be very happy, and many others will share your joy over his birth." This baby grew up to be John the Baptist and spread the good news of the Gospel. Not only were his parents happy because God answered their prayers, but many other people are happy because they were saved through his ministry.
Can you think of a time when you have been been happy about answered prayer? I think that the longer you wait, the happier you are.
