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


The question often is asked, “Is it helpful to pray when a condition appears irreversible? Consider the case of a nine-year-old British girl. (We shall call Mary)

In September 1982, Mary developed a virus infection that damaged both of her ears, leaving her deaf. Dr. R.F. Gardner examined Mary and noted the problem that he certified as deafness. The diagnosis was untreatable bilateral sensorineural deafness. Mary’s parent were told that there was nothing that could be done except to give her hearing aids that would help only to a limited degree.

Mary didn’t want to wear hearing aids the rest of her life and began praying about her condition. Her family and friends joined in and prayed with her. She began to feel that God was telling her to especially pray for the one problem.  Passages of scripture kept coming to her mind. If you have the faith of a child … ask and you shall receive …your faith have made you whole.

On March 8, 1983 one of the hearing aids was damaged at school. The problem was fixed and readjusted for Mary. The next evening Mary was in bed when she realized something was different. She ran down stairs yelling, “Mother! I can hear you!”

Her mother couldn’t believe it. Mary could even hear whispers. When she called the doctor he responded that he didn’t believe her.  “It’s not possible!”

The following day Mary was tested again. The audiogram and tympanogram were fully normal. The audiologists could give no explanation for what had occurred. “I have never seen anything like this in my life.”

The doctor concluded “A belief in the occurrence of cases of miraculous healing today is intellectually acceptable.”

We started with a question. Should you keep praying when the situation seems hopeless. Mary’s answer is by all means! In this age of uncertainty, many things remain uncertain. But prayer isn’t one of them.

Expect the unexpected!
