Miracles. . . When we speak of miracles nowadays, we often think of the extraordinary like walking on water, the dead rising, events defying the laws of nature and somehow we kind of associate it with magic. Jesus performed a lot of miracles during his time. In our time, are there still miracles?

I believe that miracles still happen. When I was in a camp in Cambodia, Robert (one of the organizers), shared his life story. About a year ago, he was diagnosed with cancer and was told to have only six months to live. He was practically a "dead man walking". He has a wife and two teenagers. The Christian community in his place started an email brigade asking for prayers from christians all over the world. He promised God that he will dedicate his life for God's ministry. After about six months of power prayer, he was free from cancer. He now lives his life for God's ministry. For me, this is a miracle.

His story touched me and deepened my belief in the power of prayer. Robert was a living testimony of what God can do. In our own lives, we only have to open our hearts and eyes and we can see the miracles that God is doing in our lives. It may not be as impacting as the story of Robert, but it is enough to change the course of our lives.

Do you believe in miracles?
