When we ask for a miracle, we are asking God to work in a special way in our lives or in the lives of those we love. Catholic prayers for miracles often involve asking for the intercession of the saints, who are believed to be able to pray for us and intercede on our behalf before God.
May these prayers bring comfort and hope to all those who recite them, and may they receive the miraculous blessings they seek through the loving intercession of the saints.
