Prayer for a miracle
Miracle is an event or something that happens contrary to the normal things. These are things that cannot be explained by natural or scientific laws. Such events are in most cases attributed to supernatural being, miracle workers or a magicians. This term is mostly used in religious context. It is mostly believed to be an answer by the supernatural being. In the current century, this term has gained quite a number of prominence. Prayer for a miracle on the other hand can be defined as communication or a solemn request for help or expression of thanks to God or any other object of worship. When the two are combined, it means requesting God to bless or give you somethings that is not so normal to the human set up, an example is someone getting a divine healing from a disease that has no cure, like HIV/ Aids. When such happens, people won’t take it as normal because since time immemorial, there has been no cure for that virus.
Most people who strong faith God believe that miracles are not things which just occur but should be requested as God doesn’t control His ability in you but you do. This is possible through you learning the laws God and how they work. It is not just like pressing a button and God’s miracles happen unto you, many faithful’s will dispute. They strongly know and belief that God is a good God and He will give you what you deserve. God is seen to be a supernatural being who is never biased and will give you what you ought to be given and in the right proportion. Religious male and female will always seek to have a prayer for a miracle when something happen like, a natural calamity. They will organize such prayers for a miracle to be accompanied by such activities as fasting. Many religions such as Christians and Muslims believe in prayer for miracles. Christians have their own way of explaining miraculous deeds in the Bible as Muslims does the same with the Koran. For instance, the most important miracle Christian’s belief in the Bible is the virgin birth of Jesus. This is an abnormal thing, how possible is it for a virgin to give birth? Jesus is God who came and live like a human in a physical body, is this even believable? These among other miracles are cited in the Christian religious book, the Bible.
A prayer for a miracle was not only during the era Jesus or Mohammed as it is believed by Christians and Muslims consecutively, even in the current world, it still happens. Nowadays, it not only happens to the religious group of people but also to non-believers who are ready to give money or other valuables in order to be hit by these strange and abnormal events in a good way. In fact, the non-religious miracles are gaining fame at an alarming rate. This is attributed to the fact that, there are a lot of media to reach a large number of target persons as compared to those ancient days. These is largely happening because of the presence of social media. The current generation seems to be largely moved by these events unlike the previous one. Nowadays, miracles are said to be happening each and every second the planet Earth is rotating.
Nowadays, prayers for a miracle to happen is not enough. Someone should and must go an extra mile for that to be realized. Many call it ‘planting a seed’ and watering it. There are a lot of people who have come out and claim to be the mediators of God, they are God sent, among other claims. These people perform funny and crazy deeds that lures many and in the process they become trapped. For example, some of these miracle workers perfect the art of science and use it as a bait to trap the flock, so they say. Someone claim that, they can heal by applying holly oil, touching the affected part of the body and or just shouting heal! There are so many orthodox means that is used in the recent world unlike during the time of Jesus, as in the Christian context. People nowadays tend to believe more in miracle workers than their faith. Politicians visit witchdoctors so that they be touched or smeared by the holly oil and by so doing they will be able to win in their political seats. Passing an exam is not an exception in this case, many students also pay visits to these miracle workers to be able to pass in their exams. Even the poor struggle hard to visit these workers so that they can be able to move out of poverty. The rich also does the same so that their wealth is well protected and they may be able to maintain their status in the society.
With all these happening, a small percentage of believers, who strongly believe in a prayer for a miracle are left to wonder as all miracle issue has turned out to be a business. People start their own churches, make up their own sick, crippled, blind, and deaf, bring them to church on a wheelchair, pray for them and eventually return home on their two feet and claim that they have been healed by the power in the words of the preacher. This is circulated all over social media by the followers who in most cases are innocent but would wish their friends and relatives to be healed. These services are also broadcasted on live national televisions and radio stations so as to cover a large group of interested and moved persons. In so doing, they market the individual church and each day the number of followers increase and that translates to an increase in the amount of offerings collected. These people tell their followers, that the more they give, the more the blessings they receive. This has made many people become more generous in church giving than any other place. Prayer for a miracle is no longer as spiritual as it was but it has turned out to be materialistic. With this trend, many tend to deviate from the faith point of view of miracles to material point of view.
