When You Need a Miracle: How to Ask God for the Impossible



When You Need a Miracle: How to Ask God for the Impossible

By Linda Evans Shepherd

Do you need a miracle?

In her book, When You Need a Miracle: How to Ask God for the Impossible, Linda asks, “Are you facing a dark hour as you ponder your circumstances? She reminds us of the words of Jesus in John 14:1: “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me” (NLT).

Boldly, the author says, “If you read this book until the end, you will experience miracles.” She adds, “The more you invite God into your life, the more you’ll learn to rest in his abiding presence and the more miracles you’ll see.”

I took Linda up on her statements. With eagerness to receive a miracle, I read the book to the end. I did see miracles, and I continue to see miracles.

If we have troubles in our lives, the author says perhaps God “is simply giving us the opportunity to seek him and to invite him to draw ever near.”

Every chapter includes a miraculous prayer for the reader to pray and scripture to ponder. This is no ordinary book on prayer. The reminders of God’s love, the scriptures that tell us who we are in Christ, the incredible true stories, and the author’s transparency about her own life make the reader expect a miracle.

Sometimes when we are in the thick of horrendous circumstances, we forget we are on earth in spiritual warfare, and we have an enemy who hates us. Look at John 10:10: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (NIV). The miracle book is worth double the price just for the Set Free Prayer Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4.

The chapters on forgiveness, praise and being sold out for the Lord will light a spiritual fire within you. And if that weren’t enough Linda has a website, www.NeedMiracleBook.com with a brief video for each chapter. You won’t want to miss a single one of them.

  1. Yvonne, I absolutely love this paragraph:

    "Sometimes when we are in the thick of horrendous circumstances, we forget we are on earth in spiritual warfare, and we have an enemy who hates us. Look at John 10:10: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (NIV)."

    If we can just remember this all the time our lives could be so much calmer. We can remember that our battle is not "really" with others it is with the enemy who HATES us beyond our wildest imaginations. Great post!
