Overview

"These inspiring stories will uplift the most downhearted of souls and provide hope and healing."
-Brad Steiger and Sherry Hansen Steiger, authors of Christmas Miracles and Miracles of a Mother's Love

"I was moved by this book to fall on my knees and praise God."
-Dr. Bobby Jones, author of Make a Joyful Noise

"Extraordinary stories from an extraordinary writer."
-Karyn Feiden, author of Against the Odds

God hears every prayer-and it is said that every prayer ultimately does get answered. The remarkable stories in God's Miracles are undeniable proof of this fact. The fifty tales in this uplifting collection are so extraordinary it is impossible to deny that divine intervention influenced their outcomes.

Among the remarkable stories in this volume:

*Dolores, who went for a biopsy after two mammograms showed suspicious masses, and as told, "Lady, we can't biopsy something that's not there"
*Linda, whose heirloom black rosary beads changed before her eyes and were pronounced solid gold by an assayer
*Two-year-old Brayden, who recovered from a coma and many holes in his lungs through the healing power of prayer
*Joseph, who would have drowned if not for the strength of unseen hands guiding him to shore

These experiences serve as a constant reminder that God looks out for us all as we travel on our own individual journeys.

Lesley Sussman is the author of more than a dozen nonfiction books, including Touched by God and Miraculous Pet Recoveries. He lives in New York City.

Read an Excerpt

It was the winter of l999 and Linda Ferris was busy at work at the Henry Ford Medical Clinic in Detroit, where she works as a nurse, when her phone rang. "I said hello several times, and I heard a familiar silence," she recalls. "It was the kind of silence I always got when mom was too choked up to tell me some bad news - like when one of the grandchildren were sick."
When her mother, Dolores Milen, finally broke the silence, the news wasn't about one of the kids, but about herself. "The doctor called and I need to repeat my mammogram," Linda's mother said. "He found two suspicious masses."
Linda fell silent at those words, numb. Then her professional response kicked in. "I talked to my mother about it like I've done so many times with patients and tried to keep from showing that I was upset."
When she hung up the phone, Linda swung into action, scheduling a follow-up mammogram for the next week. She went over to her mother's house to reassure her, but she still felt numb, like a professional.
But the first thing she did when she got home was to pray that her mother would be alright. Over the next couple of days, waiting for the results of the second mammogram, she began asking everyone she knew to pray, too.
But the first thing she did when she got home was to pray that her mother would be alright. Over the next couple of days, waiting for the results of the second mammogram, she began asking everyone she knew to pray, too.
Linda had been raised moderately religious, and had attended both the Baptist and Presbyterian churches as a child. She had always been interested in religion, and had attended church with her brother even when her parents didn't go. But Linda had come to believe in the power of prayer through her work as a nurse. She had seen the power of a strong prayer life and will to live. Faith and prayer had mitigated her own experience of chronic fatigue syndrome.
Her mother had always been strong-Delores had raised five children and several grandchildren and nursed Linda's father after a stroke. Linda knew-hoped-that she would be alright.
But Linda's worries were not over yet. The second mammogram showed two well defined masses, suspicious for breast cancer. Her mother would need a biopsy as soon as possible.
Linda was stunned, as she tried to comfort the mother who had always been her own rock, through her childhood and her own recent divorce.
Whens she got home the night after the second mammogram's results had come, Linda was emotionally exhausted. "I laid on the couch in total darkness and just cried and prayed to God. The next day I couldn't do anything. I felt as if I were paralyzed."
Linda forced herself to go to work, although she found it very difficult concentrating or talking to patients with the confidence she once had. All the while, she was worrying about her mother. Through her professional connections, Linda got her mother the next available appointment at the Kamanos Cancer Centre in Detroit-in two weeks. "The longest two weeks of our lives,"says Linda.
Linda filled the time asking everyone she came into contact with to pray for Delores, as well as their pastor, her friends, and her brothers and sisters. Every day she went over to Delores's house just to be near her.
The morning finally came for Linda to drive her mother down to the Karmanos Cancer Centre for the biopsy. She was surprised by the feeling that engulfed her that morning. "Somehow, I felt strong, with a confidence that I know I couldn't have gotten all on my own, but from a Higher Power," she proclaims. "I knew there were hundreds of people praying for my mother and I just had faith that God would hear those prayers and perform a miracle. And so all the way to the Centre I just held on to this feeling."
But Linda's resolve broke when her mother disappeared into the examining room and broke down in tears. "I wanted so much to be with her, to hold her hand like she'd done for me so many times in my life. She was one of the most dedicated and loyal mothers and wife. I could always go to her with a problem and we could talk about anything." Linda began to pray in the waiting room. When she looked up she was surprised to see her mother standing before her, crying. "They didn't do it," she announced. "What? What do you mean they didn't do it?" said the incredulous daughter. Delores smiled and took a seat next to her daughter. The ultrasound hadn't shown anything. The doctors had several films from the prior mammograms to compare, and they called in other doctors to confirm it. The masses were simply gone. "Lady, we can't biopsy something that's not there,"one of the doctors had said. Linda stared at her mother . All she could do was mutter to herself, "They couldn't find it - it's completely gone."
The next moments were absolutely magical, Linda says. "We walked back to the elevator, rode down to the lobby, and as we began to realize what they had just said, we wrapped our arms around each other. We just stood there holding on for dear life. I didn't realize the lobby was full of people sitting in chairs all around us when I blurted out, 'Mom, God healed you.' Suddenly I noticed tears of joy on my mother's face as people all around us were smiling."
All the way home the two women cried, and laughed, and cried again. It has been more than a year since that miraculous event, and Linda says it seems as if it had only happened yesterday.
Linda's mother continued to go for mammograms every six months. The results never changed. "I will always thank God for the miraculous gift He gave us."
