These remarkable stories of answered prayers remind us that we are never alone
In this inspiring collection, the work of angels takes many forms, including miracles, healings, and heavenly visitations. These events all convey a single, urgent, and loving message: God answers prayer. "There's real power in prayer," writes beloved New York Times best-selling author Joan Wester Anderson. "We can trust that God's intense love for us will carry us through." Help is at hand when we need it most.
Anderson's astonishing first-hand accounts testify to the hope that prayer offers: a dying infant inexplicably recovers after an encounter with a mysterious visitor; a long-lost son suddenly returns home for Christmas; a young man drowning in an icy river unaccountably finds himself on shore; a grieving widow, alone and far from home, receives comfort and counsel from angels in disguise. These stories and dozens of others reveal the care of a loving God who touches the most intimate parts of our hearts.
