A miracle is a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of the divine. When Christians talk about a miracle, they mean an event that is not “normal” – that is, one that should not be able to happen according to the laws of nature.
The Gospels describe 35 miracles that Jesus performed. Over half of these 35 stories are about Jesus healing sick people. Others describe Jesus casting out demons from people. On three occasions, Jesus brought dead people back to life. The rest of the stories show Jesus’ power over things – changing water into wine, feeding a great crowd with very little food, walking on water, calming a storm. This is just a snapshot of the miracles of Jesus. These miracles help us to understand that Jesus was more than just a man. They also show us what God is like – what He cares about and what He chooses to do for His people. That includes us. Here are six prayers for miracles:
Often, when we pray for miracles to happen in our lives, we are also praying for healing to happen in our lives as well. We see countless examples of healing happening in Scripture through Jesus’ healing power. The same is possible in our daily lives: Lord Jesus, heal me. Heal in me whatever You see needs healing. Heal me of whatever might separate me from you. Heal my memory, heal my heart, heal my emotions, heal my spirit, heal my body and heal my soul. Lay Your hands gently upon me and Heal me through Your love for me. Amen.
For Miracle Power
Miracle power testifies that God’s touch is always a heartbeat away. It’s important that we are conscious of God at work in our lives daily. Miracle power can happen in your life when you have faith and trust that miracles can really happen. Are you ready to unleash that miracle power? This prayer will guide you: Heavenly Father, I open my heart wide to receive the love of God. As I receive God’s love as universal supply, all my affairs are healed. I realize and accept the healing power of the Universe as love, and I allow the healing power that is love to penetrate my life. I readily accept the healing power of love in my life and I know that as love, God is my limitless and abundant supply made manifest. I feel the outpouring of God’s love in my body and mind. I feel God’s love in my affairs, and I know all is well. Amen.
For Faith to Always BelieveWhen we pray for miracles, it’s important that we understand that we too are miraculous beings. We wouldn’t be here without the power of God’s hand and His miraculous power being at work. When we believe in this power, all things are possible: Jesus, Your array of miracles, a true manifestation of Your divinity draws the admiration of searching souls. Never let it be said, ‘Miracles do not exist!’ You are the living example of such actions. Bless me with the faith to always believe, to affirm the Supreme Power of Your miracles, be they of a physical or spiritual nature. Grant me the aptitude to instantly perceive the source of all supernatural occurrences. So only Your excellence shall be glorified. Jesus, my existence is a wonderful miracle. Amen.
For What Only God Can Do
Don’t limit your prayers only to simple situations that don’t require much divine intervention to change. Instead, make a habit of praying for big things that only God can do. For example, instead of praying to get through each workday well, pray for a bigger vision of your vocation and the courage you need to fulfill it, even if that means finding an entirely new job. Invite God to do something incredibly powerful in each situation that you bring to Him: Lord, I am praying for what only You can do. I am praying for a miracle. I know the source from which it will come. I trust in You to send me a sign. Teach me dear Lord to know wonder. And, if You are willing, I am waiting, ready to receive my miracle today. Amen.
For God’s Strength to Fight Spiritual Battles
You’ll never be able to lose a battle when you fight with God’s strength flowing through you. So don’t rely on your own limited strength; pray for God to empower you to do battle in every situation and that this strength will enable you to make miracles happen: Dear God, in the name of Jesus, we ask that You come against strongholds, demonic influences, spiritual attacks, and bondages. We believe you have the miraculous power and strength to conquer the darkest enemy, break the strongest barrier, and silence the greatest deceiver. Your name is Worthy, Glorious, Almighty in power and we claim victory today in Your name. Send Your mightiest warriors to fight this battle for us. Lord, to You the darkness shines as bright as the day. Shine Your light upon us, free us, give us peace, and snatch us back from the enemy’s grip. Amen.
For Miracles When We are Wrestling Inside
When something bad happens, don’t just throw out a few brief prayers for God’s help, and then move on in discouragement if the situation doesn’t change for the better soon. Instead, grab hold of God’s promises and fight to seem them unfurled. If you’re ready for miracles to happen in your life, be persistent, praying until God gives you answers. Don’t give up praying about a situation until God’s power comes into it: Heavenly Father, I feel like giving up. Help me to remember the reason I began. Help me to see the purpose behind Your plan. Provide the necessary grace. Keep me set upon Your face, to find strength for the next step, to discover faith to keep trying and to believe that miracles are possible today and in all circumstances. Amen.
Are you ready for miracles to start happening in your life? You have the ability to be restored when you trust in God’s power and the decisions He is making in your life. Once you do this, the feelings of pain and despair will float away. The miracles of Jesus can change your life and those miracles start with us believing.
