Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Church with a Ph.D., Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


Few problems are more difficult to live with than chronic alcoholism. Through the years I have worked with a number of people who struggled to survive uncontrolled drinking that left them broken and degraded. Consequently, I am always aware of people who have struggled with this condition.

Recently I was in a meeting with Tom and Tina Savage, two friends. As Tom Savage prayed, he made intercession for a person with this problem. (We’ll call her Alice for privacy’s sake.)  I knew of  Tom and Tina’s commitment to the highest and the best. My ears perked up and I wanted to know more about Alice’s problem.

Tom’s brother’s sister-in-law that had become a concern because of her obvious excessive drinking. Alice had a long-term boyfriend who finally left her because of her lack of sobriety.  The family had started keeping the children away because of Alice’s destructive influence on them. While everyone worried, there didn’t appear to be anything they could do to correct Alice’s problem.

She began turning in at around 7:00 in the evening. Alice would complain she needed more sleep and firmly shut her bedroom door. Everyone knew she was actually going to drink herself into a drunken stupor. The pattern repeated evening after evening.

On this particular night, the door didn’t shut and was open a crack. Tom’s brother noticed the opening and peeked in. Alice was crawling across the floor on her hands and knees, looking for a bottle. She turned her head and stared at him. Shocked, he staggered backward. The knurled, twisted look on her face was like a monster. Never had he seen such a possessed look. Alice had the countenance of pure evil.

Her problem was more than drinking compulsively. Something dark and evil had taken over her life.  When Alice was taken to the hospital, the doctor gave her two choices: stop drinking or die.

Tom and the family began praying for this bond of evil to be broken. They petitioned for a miracle to save her life. They kept interceding for the power of God to defeat Evil. Somewhere in their prayers, the bond broke. Evil was defeated.   

In the middle of the night, Alice was set free. Since that night she has been completely sober.

People may debate the power of prayer, but Tom and Tina can tell them their prayers brought a life saving change. They witnessed the chains of a diabolical defeat break and a relative set free. That was a miracle.

Also, I’d love to hear your story if you’ve experienced a divine intervention.
