I truly believe that miracles happen everyday.
I can give you three instances wherein God answered my prayers:
The prayer book
During my first Holy communion, my aunt
gave me a prayer book. The prayer book, yet very simple, was covered in
dark leather. It helped me go thru lonely nights as a child. One palm sunday,
our house burned down. My room was the room that was completely devastated.
All of my belongings were burned. This sucked for a 12 year old and I remember
walking to my room crying and wondering why this was happening to my family.
Then, on top of my melted radio, i saw my prayer book--leather intact and
pages not burned. The only defect was the dark edges which today cannot
even be seen today. After this, i knew God was there. I knew everything
was going to be alright.
Novena to St. Therese:
My husband and I have a devotion to Saint
Therese. When i was in college, I was crushed when i found out that i got
kicked out from school. I felt lost and I needed reassurance that I can
in fact get accepted in another college (a college which is way better
than the college that I got kicked out in). Because of this, I prayed the
novena consistently and lo and behold, i got my answer. The St therese
novena promises her devotees a shower of roses to the ones whose miracles
are granted. After saying the novena, my mother (without knowing I was
saying the novena) sent me a picture of a rose saying that my prayers were
granted by St therese. It was a random mass text but it meant so much to
me. I know that St therese intentionally sent that to me to let me know
that my wish was granted. I was so happy.
After a few months, i was enrolling in my new
college and knew that life couldn't get any better....
My husband, on the other hand, was puzzled the
other day due to financial difficulties. He wanted to know that all his
dreams will come true. He was driving to his sisters wedding and prayed
to St therese for a sign. After this, he kept on seeing roses the whole
day. Not convinced, he still asked for a rose. He asked St therese to please
literally give him a rose and not just keep seeing roses everywhere. Lo
and behold, St therese did give him a rose. During the entourage line up
in his sisters wedding, the coordinator hung a rose corsage in his tuxedo.
Who would think that his sisters preferred flower for her wedding were
Novena to the Perpetual Help
Going back to my college dilemma, I also
prayed the perpetual help novena and went to the chapel everyday praying
for my "college miracle." I remember that in the end of my novena, I was
half asleep and I remember dreaming of Mother Mary telling me to be happy
since my wish was already granted. What made it more miraculous was that
the helper in our house suddenly woke me up since I had a phone call from
the Deans office of the college i was applying to. They told him to let
me know that I have passed the exam and that I needed to report to them
immediately. What a miracle it is!!!
After some years, when i was being a bad bad teenager
and was failing to keep my grades up, I prayed to Mother Mary again to
help me get back on track. Although this time it took a year before she
answered my prayer, she still did. She answered my prayer the best way
possible since she knew that if she gave me what i wanted right away, i
wouldn't have learned my lesson. God really works wonders and really knows
when to answer you
