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.


Recently I was searching through my files where I keep interviews with people who experienced divine interventions. Sometimes they were instantaneous miracles and other times they were demonstrations of grace that stretched over a longer period of time. Big or little, these touches of the miraculous mirrored the love of God. These recoveries from struggles remain a witness to the power of prayer and intercession. Each person discovered the difference prayer can make.

Here’s several of those experiences that I found in my records. (names are anonymous)

Alice Chambers’ first son brought pure joy, but as she was working with the baby, Alice slipped and fell, splitting her head open. The fall proved to be highly disorienting causing her to have a problem sleeping. Alice accidently took an overdose of sleeping pills. As she recovered from the fall and the pills, the doctors found Alice had also developed a disintegrating lung. The new mother had suddenly become surrounded by disaster.

Friends and her pastor began praying earnestly for Alice. They prayed constantly day and night. The problems soon slipped away and all discomfort disappeared. Alice’s lung stayed healthy till the day she dies. For the rest of her life Alice remained an advocate of prayer.

Bob Ryan had been in counseling with one of our professional therapists, trying to find relief from deep seated bitterness.  In addition, Bob enrolled in a men’s Bible Study group. The church’s men’s fellowship prayed for each other and Bob in particular wanted them to intercede for him. The counseling brought important insight and understanding, but the bitterness lingered. Bob’s problem exceeded the therapist ability to completely resolve the issue.

Bob’s men’s prayer group surrounded him, laid on hands, and prayed fervently. During one of the sessions, Bob suddenly realized all bitterness was gone. The lingering struggle had vanished and was replaced by a new gentler spirit. The prayers completed the therapist’s task. 

Then there’s Sam Silver. San had always been an outstanding athlete and naturally went on to play college football. Of course, college ball is an exceedingly rough sport. Sam injured his knee so badly that an operation was required.

Jack Phillips roamed the hospital halls and had a ministry praying for people. He stumbled across Sam Silver who’s knee wasn’t doing so good. Jack began to pray.

As Sam prepared to leave the hospital, the doctor looked at the x-rays and shook his head. “I’d like to take the credit, but I can’t. Your knee is not only improved, it is better than it was before the injury. Amazing”.

What happened? Sam Silver knew. Prayer.

Does prayer work? These three friends of mine agree. Prayer is the path that leads to a miracle.

Remember miracles never cease!
