Greetings and peace be with you anatolian; and thanks for the link,
I just want to say that we must use our minds and we must support our faith with our mind. Otherwise we have a baseless faith. A baseless faith is a blind faith.
I have witnessed a number of events, that I can only describe as miracles.
I watched my mother suffer with multiple sclerosis for the last thirty years of her life. She could not move her arms or legs for about the last twenty years, and everything had to be done for her. Yet she seemed to experience a calmness and peace about her, despite all her suffering. I could never really understand her calmness. She had a faith in God and she sometimes used to say that she is ready to meet Jesus now. I never heard her blame God for her problems.
At one point she went into a coma and was taken to hospital, her breathing was a horrible gurgling sound, the doctors said she had hours to live so we called a priest. As the priest said his prayers my mums breathing seemed to relax and minutes after the priest left she came round and started to speak, she had no recollection of anything that happened in hospital for the last two days, or that the priest had said prayers over her. She lived another ten years in her paralysed state, people might have said that it would have been kinder for her to have passed away in hospital, but she later said that she was not ready to die.
God answers prayers in a way that help us to find eternal life, I don’t think God answers prayers in a way, that just makes our lives easier on this Earth. God will never place on us a burden that is too great for us to carry, but we do need to turn to God and pray for that strength, to get us through this day, and every day, always one day at a time. We must never give up hope in a loving and merciful God
This came at a time when I was searching for God, and it was the first of the life and death miracles that I witnessed.
I used to like reading the posts of Woodrow, a devout Muslim on this forum, he talked of the life changing miracles in his life.
In the pirit of praying to do the will of our God,
