Rev. 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.


Niki Anderson is a speaker and writer who remembers well her struggles as an eight-year-old child. She also reminds us of the importance of the church as a place of healing.

These weekly blogs started to help people discover and remember that the impact of secularism tends to blur our grasp that heaven is still here and the power of God has not disappeared. Niki is an example of that fact. 

As a sick child Niki struggled with bladder and urinary infections. After a long siege, the doctor advised exploratory surgery that could have serious consequences. Her mother prayed hard and then noticed an ad in the paper about a church meeting where a missionary prayed for the sick.  At the time, the family lived in Los Angeles and had to drive across town to attend the services.

The family walked into the church and found a section reserved for people who needed specific prayer. They sat near the back. A prelude was being played and Niki sat quietly, wondering what was coming next. A women’s voice asked, “Do you want prayer?”

Niki found a soft-spoken middle-aged woman with happy, blue eyes speaking to her. “Yes,” she answered.

As their eyes met, Niki felt a surge of compassion fill her body. The sensation was clearly holy. The service continued and near the end, people were called to come forward by the missionary minister. To her surprise, when the he started to pray for her, he exclaimed “It’s me that being healed! I’ve had bleeding ulcers! When I touched this little girl, I felt the healing rush through my body!”

The next morning Niki’s parents took her to the hospital and prepared her for the operating room. She was wheeled in for the procedure to begin. After a few minutes, the doctor came out.

“I have no explanation for this, but all inflammation is gone and there is no indication of any abnormality. There is no need for surgery. It’s strange but we can only be pleased.”

Niki knew that the previous night at the church had ended her problem. The hand of God had worked through the women with the gentle, blue eyes. The church remains the best place to find God at work.  

Remember to expect the unexpected.
