What if this is the miracle?

Upon opening the bulletin at the church one is greeted with a page of announcements some literature about the importance of family and a prayer request list. The prayer list is updated and prayed over on a daily basis, there are sections for prayers to be made everyday of the week.  The list has prayers for the health of friends and families, traveling mercy for friends and families, there are a few requests for financial help from the lord there also. Then there is the testimonial section of the prayer list, here is where the miracles are listed.

A miracle is defined as an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause, or for those of us who love the simple and succinct, a marvel or a wonder.

I often wonder if based on this definition for a miracle that maybe the section of the prayer list should contain much more testimonials.

The Earth is the perfect place for creating and maintaining human life and while there is a fiery debate about the future of the Earths climate it remains the only one that can sustain human life. This fact in and of itself is miraculous. Am I saying that I should speak to the church committee for the prayer list and have the earth’s climate added to the list? No but when I pray and acknowledge God perhaps it would benefit me to  keep in mind the presence of “everyday miracles” and if  I can make this my prayer as well as my outlook on life itself maybe I will enjoy each moment a little more.

maybe the miracles I am looking for are right in front of me
