There is a line of thought in the body of Christ today which holds that the age of miracles is past, or is no longer needed because we have the complete revelation of God. To such thinking, I would strongly retort, miracles are manifest when prayer is answered.
Every time you approach the throne room of God with a petition, you are seeking an answer. In fact, there would be no sense or need for prayer if one expected to receive nothing from God, even if were but the communion and fellowship of the Father.
The confidence of knowing that He hears you is most assuredly an answer and a miracle. Moreover, I John 5:15-15, instructs, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him”. Not only do you receive fellowship with God, but, “whatsoever you ask”.
Whatever privileges and benefits accrue from prayer entails believers taking their place in faith, resulting in Divine intervention or suspension of the natural, which is, indeed, a miracle. Denial of miracles is denial of your walk by faith and acquiescence to sense knowledge.
Should people bother at all to pray to God, they are expecting Him to answer. Receiving an answer to your prayer is an affirmation that God has provided it. He has done something above and beyond your natural ability, a miracle. It follows, then, prayer is absolutely useless if there are no miracles. I don’t know about you, my friend, but, I believe in miracles.
