Rev. Robert L. Wise, PhD 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., he is the author of 36 books. Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


While the meaning of Easter still lingers in our thoughts, I am reminded of how the Resurrection of Jesus the Christ continues to guide our personal battles with death and illness.  A blow was struck against sickness and deterioration. Sure, the battle with human infirmity is not over, but the miraculous interventions of our heavenly Father continue to guide us in our time of need.  Here are two examples that I recently found in my files. When people have received a touch of Grace, they often write me. Here are two expressions of divine intervention. (Names are anonymous for privacy sake)

Paula’s trip to the doctor about her abdominal pain resulted in Gall Bladder surgery. After the surgery, the pain continued. Paula heard about the “Jesus Prayer.”  Taken from the Gospels, (Matthew 20:31), the prayer of two blind men brought the restoration of their sight. “Lord Jesus, Son of  David have mercy on us,” or “Lord Jesus, Son of God have mercy on me,” is repeated over and over in a prayerful mantra seeking healing.

The discovery of the earliest Church was that repetition helped the mind, the emotions, and the physical body come together and focus on coming into a relationship with the Holy Spirit. We are lifted out of the distractions of this world and brought into the realm of inspiration. The Jesus prayer is often prayed  over and over for a long time.

Paula discovered the prayer helped her breathe more deeply and speeded up the healing process. However, during the hospital stay an x-ray showed an abnormality with Paula’s heart. She kept praying the Jesus Prayer. The next x-ray revealed the abnormality was gone. Paula was released early. Like the two blind men, she knew the hand of God had reached into her body and made whole.

Struggling with throbbing agony, George had been rushed to the emergency room at St. Anthony’s hospital, Oklahoma City. Sever stomach pains had doubled him up. The cramping turned into a real struggle. A friend showed up and began praying for the condition. Within five minutes, the nightmare was over. The excruciating discomfort disappeared. Surprisingly enough, George discovered that his habit of smoking cigarettes was also gone and he hasn’t smoked since. All because of a friend’s prayer.

We might conclude that Easter happened again in a hospital.  Is the Holy Spirit still working in our world?  You bet your boots. Just remember miracles never cease!
