Miracles: Raised from the Dead

When I was in seminary, I told one of my professors how I was interested in doing a book that compiled stories of answered prayers, miracles if you will. He loved my idea, and like most good ideas, someone had thought of it before.

So he referred to me, The Wonders of Prayer, an 1885 compilation of answered prayers narrated by several people including the likes of like D.L. Moody, Charles Spurgeon and George Muller as a guide for my idea. (Needless to say, I haven’t done anything with this idea as of yet.) But it’s a splendid little book that I most definitely recommend!

Most recently a friend of my husband’s, Dr. Craig Keener, has written a two-volume book called Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts. This work includes accounts of modern day miracles, including the story of his sister-in-law being raised from the dead where she lived in the Congo.

This first video is of Craig’s wife Medine talking about this account, and the second video is of Craig recalling hearing the story first-hand from his mother-in-law and others who were present.

Whether it is accounts of miracles and answered prayers from 1885 or from last year, in my opinion I wanted to share these with you because 1) we are reminded how God has been working in the past and is at work presently and 2) it encourages us who are going through trials of many kinds to never stop trusting in God or the power of prayer.
