In desperate need of a miracle of healing for our friend and brother in the faith who accidentally ingested peanuts while alergic to them. This 18 year old young suffered oxygen deprivation for over 15 minutes. I would have more faith in healing miracles if I'd witnessed them more often. No doubt that the will of the Lord can do anything, but will he do anything for this young man. Anything less than a half recovery doesn't seem to be a miracle for me. A full recovery or something close to it would be awesome and faith promoting. Can the Lord do anything? We believe, oh Lord help thou our unbelief!
I agree with Hal Cooper's comment about the increase of miracles in our lives. I personally experience small miracles almost every day in the form of information coming to me to fulfill my calling as a ward mission leader, as well as events that move people to the Church. It is almost astonishing to me that whenever a question about a gospel doctrine or practice comes to my mind, within 24 hours I will have information on the subject even without asking. I could go on and on. Perhaps it is because I am getting older and the Lord is more merciful to old people, but the miracles occur so fast I can hardly keep track. It is truly a "Marvelous Work and a Wonder."
Good article, I would like to add that perhaps if more priesthood holders were living true to the commandments and exercised more faith in God we would experience more miracles when giving priesthood blessings.
We must realize there are miracles every day but we don't consider them as such because they are so "normal" breathing, eating, sleeping, waking are only a few miracles. We ourselves are miracles.
Interestingly, we don't have a monopoly on faith. Miracles happen in other Christian churches every day as well. If even a sparrow doesn't fall without our Father's knowledge we can be sure that every sincere prayer is answered with a blessing. Anyone who is paying attention can see the hand of God.
Thank you brother Wallace for reminding us to evaluate ourselves and move from our comfort zone. When we do so the Gifts of the Spirit, including miracles, will be much more evident among us than they now are.
I don't see where I can follow your reasoning. While I haven't seen ward, stake or even general Church leaders call down fire, raise the dead or move mountains, the number of miricles in the lives of lay members seems to have greatly increased during my lifetime. Maybe it is only greater awareness on my part; but, the high level of miricles in my own life, the lives of family members and in those of ward and stake members is downright amazing and causes me to stand in awe and increasing humbleness as I observe.
Thank you for this wonderful article. I love your articles. If an article has your name on it, I read it. Thank you.
