I believe in miracles (as in the Biblical sense), but I don't think I can say I've actually ever witnessed one. I'm curious if anyone here feels they've ever seen a real one before. If so, what is your miracle story?
My late father told me he saw his already dead grandfather “come” for his grandmother on the porch of her home. She said “Little Freddy, fetch me my pipe” and when he returned she smoked a bowl of tobacco and said “grandpa is here to take me home” and she died. He saw their spirits leave. That would’ve been in the early thirties.
It all started after I had received Jesus. Not the miracles, just my being able to see them.
The first miracles I had ever seen were during a Katherine Kuhlmann service in the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. The presence of the Holy Spirit was so powerful and people were bring heal all over the place.
Never seem anything like it. Seen a lot more since.
I have never seen a miracle, but I did see and interact with all I can describe as a satanic presence emenating from a loved one (former loved one)........ three different times. Don’t understand it, can’t explain it, but view it as supernatural at the least.
I read this once (paraphrase): If the sun only rose once every 10 thousand years, we’d all gather to watch the miracle, but because it rises every day, we don’t look.
Yes, I have. My sister-in-law was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in Oct. She was in horrible pain, hospitalized with pain meds every two hours (still not killing pain). My brother wanted her to have a nerve block but they couldn’t if she was on the drugs.
Her brother-in-law went to the Padre Pio Shrine and prayed out loud. Took notes to put on wall. That night she slept through the night for the first time since she’d gone in. She got up the next morning and made her bed, walked down to the atrium to read her devotional. She refused drugs because she had no pain.
The doctors came in one by one and could not believe it, said it was ‘magical’ and ‘impossible’ and ‘they couldn’t understand it’. They even took another ct scan to see if the tumor was still there and it was. But she stayed pain-free for 3 days until they did the nerve block . Thankfully, she didn’t have that kind of pain again in her life. She did pass Jan. 29th but the miracle gave her quality of life in her last days. She was able to enjoy her family and grandkids and she made every minute count.

What a beautiful story. Thank you for sharing.
Miracles happen everyday. You just need to see them for what they are. On one occasion, I was part of someone else’s “miracle.” A neighbor I didn’t know had said a prayer for a singer to take part in her Church recital. She needed a soprano. I knocked on her door to get a reference for a “homeless” man who was looking for work. We got to talking and she told me about her prayer. I majored in voice in college. I sang two solos in her program. It was a wonderful experience.
All those “serendipitous” moments are really miracles. They may be small ones, but they are gifts from God none the less.
About 50 years ago, I was in an car accident that no one should have walked away from. They had to cut us out of the car with Jaws of Life. When they finally got my mom, my brother and me out of the car, not one of us had as much as a scratch on us.
And so the basis for all our relative judgement of time (/space matter energy) is governed by the iron fist of the earths shadow!
Praise G_d! This IS The Day!
That revival has the church going to this day. I didn’t see it but many have spoke of it.
One just happened about a month ago, the day that my father passed away. I was in my car driving to be by his side as we knew he was close to passing. I had a Christian music station on and right about the time he died, the DJ came on and read the following verses from the Gospel of John:
"Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life. Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live."
Another time was last fall when my 7 year old son was rushed to the hospital with a bad asthma attack. My wife stayed with him in his room overnight and when I came home and went to bed, I was very worried and troubled. So I began praying "Jesus I trust in you. Lord Jesus I trust in you." over and over to calm myself.
The next day, a priest came by my son's room and gave him the anointing of the sick. When the priest was done, he wanted to leave a prayer card with my son and he pulled out a Divine Mercy prayer card. When I read the words below the image of Our Lord, I knew He had heard my prayer.
A friend’s son was in a severe car accident. The three other boys in the car died. He was almost cut in half from the old style seatbelt. The CHP officer pronounced everyone in the car DOA. A nurse, a pastor and an EMT were the first three on the scene. The nurse argued with the CHP and demanded a med-aerovac. The young man went from dying so very slowing overcome huge obstacles. His mother could write a book. The medical team told her that he was going to stay in the coma, then he was going to come out of the coma, but be a vegetable. Also that he would never walk again due to the damage to his spine. Last I heard from his mom was that he was going to college with a full scholarship. Also he walked 12 weeks later. There are so many miracles that happened with this young man. Everytime he started having issues his mom would activate the prayer chain. Within 30 to an hour the situation would turn around. The doctors were continuously amazed.
people always look for big’miracles. sometimes the miracles are small ones. meeting the right person at the right time. being the person something critical hinges on and doing it -’whatever it is - flawlessly. your beloved pet who’s very sick, getting well with your care and prayers and a good vet. a small gift to someone that comes at a really needed moment. a word of encouragement, a card or note or call, that uplifts a person who is going through a rough patch of stuff not going their way. your car continuing to work reliably every day. that we wake up together and have another day together with family and friends. that we all go to sleep together at the end of the day. that we have a normal, non-shtf day with problems other people elsewhere would love to have.
I do not know if it would be considered a miracle, but it was to me.
My son was 2 and walked out of the upstairs apartment (I thought he was with his Dad since he had just left). His father came back, but no little boy. I have never prayed so hard or been so scared. I was running around the complex, hollering his name. Someone driving down the street heard me and pulled in. He asked if I was looking for a little boy. I couldn’t believe it. He had just left the shopping center where the security guy had my son. He had crossed a street and a field, gone through a parking lot to the door. I have never run so fast in my life. The security guy had called the police (he had to), but told them that he knew something had to be wrong, because I was such a good mother. His Dad and I were so very fortunate.
I thank God every day because it could have had such a different outcome.
In 2002 my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor. When we went for the surgical consultation we were informed that our share of cost for the team of doctors doing the surgery was going to be between $12,000-$20,000. And that was just for the doctors not including the hospitalization and all of the other costs. Now, I don’t know about you, but I just don’t have that kind of money in my checking account.
Just two days before the surgery we received word from the insurance company that the cost was going to be $75 for those doctors. The total cost for everything for the surgery came to over $250,000. Our out of pocket was less than $200.
I think you are absolutely correct. Miracles are all around us and through us.
God healed my dog of a severe heart murmur. Freaked out the vet.
Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your judgments are like a great deep. O LORD, You preserve man and beast.
My beast was preserved.
God healed my roommate of a hangover and DTs. Sacred the daylights out of him.
God miraculously saved another roommate from suicide.
About a year and a half ago I Prayed for a man the Doctors sent home to die. They gave him a few weeks to live. Every pore on his face was swollen. He looked very near death. The next day his tumors were not completely gone but shrunken to barely there. He continued to get better and is still alive. One of the greatest moments of my life, ranking right up there with my wedding day and the birth of my children.
