Can miracles still occur?

Share |

Although miracles are not the marks of the Church, and although we do not have the right to demand them, God may in His goodness see fit to hear our prayer and help us, His children, through a direct miracle, for all things are in His power. For example, in 1540 Luther wrote to his critically ill friend, Friedrich Mykonius: “I urge you in God’s name to live, for you are very necessary for me for the reformation of the Church.” When the letter arrived, Mykonius was on the verge of death, and could no longer speak. After the letter had been read, he recovered and lived yet another six years, and only died after the Reformer’s death, as Luther had requested of God.
