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.


Ed Wilkinson’s background in neuropsychology convinced him that faith was a neurosis employed to avoid reality. Then his eight-year- old son got sick.

On November 1984 Brad Wilkinson was diagnosed with two holes in his heart which also impaired his lungs. Surgency was immediately scheduled.

As the time of the operation came closer, Brad began giving away his toys. His parents could tell that he doubted his own survival. One day he asked his father, “Am I going to die?”  His father told him that people survived this procedure but to be honest some didn’t.

“Can Jesus heal me?” Brad asked.

Ed blanched at the question and said he’d have to get back to him.  After a couple of days of anguished prayer, Ed studied Philippians 4:13. “I can do all things through him who strengthen me.” Ed was able to tell his son that God does heal. If this didn’t happen in Brad’s case, they still had the hope of eternal life. When a visiting pastor came, He asked Brad if he believed God could heal him. Brad said he did and they prayed together.

Before his surgery at the University of Missouri hospital, tests were performed. The operation was expected to take four hours. However, after an hour, the surgeon called for Ed to look at two x-rays. The earlier one showed the two holes in his heart. The second x-ray showed a wall of some sort where the holes had been sealed shut.

“I have never seen this before,” the surgeon said. “Gone.”

There was no misdiagnosis as the first film demonstrated. “You can count this as a miracle,” the doctor concluded. “Somebody somewhere must have been praying.”

Today Brad is in his thirties with a family and business of his own. He has never had any heart or lung problems since.

Ed has changed his mind about miracles and healing.

Having spent a number of years collecting and studying miracle stories, I discovered some are instantaneous and others take much longer. Some are expected; others unexpected. There is no formula to explain when and where they occur. The bottom line? Ed found it. “I can do all things through him who strengthen me.”

Expect the unexpected!
