It’s a funny thing about miracles. You need to ask for them. If you don’t, they don’t happen. If you do, maybe they happen, maybe they don’t. It’s all up to God, whose ways are higher than our ways and whose thoughts are higher than our thoughts.

Think of the Syro-Phoenecian woman who asked Jesus to heal her child, and he refused. But she kept bugging him, and he relented.

Think of the parable Jesus told about the guy bugging his friend for bread in the middle of the night, for his unexpected guests. The friend with the bread doesn’t want to get out of bed, but because the guy doesn’t give up, finally he does get out of bed and get the bread.

Miracles are real. All Christians believe in them. Sure, maybe you think think God isn’t doing them much any more, but you believe he certainly can if he wants to.

So why not ask?
