These 101 stories of angels, miracles, faith, and answered prayers will amaze, inspire, and comfort you. You only have to look — to find the angels among us.

Angels are among us, if we are open to seeing them and receiving their help. You’ll be amazed by these true personal stories, including:

  • An injured boy, lost in the woods, who is saved from a wild boar attack by the family dog, and realizes later the dog died two years earlier.
  • A man who is comforted at the funeral of his estranged son by an assistant pastor who turns out to be unknown to anyone at the church.
  • A girl who is saved from a stalker when her neighbor, a Green Beret, pulls into the driveway next to hers, despite the fact that he is deployed overseas.
  • A seemingly healthy pregnant woman, whose dead mother’s spirit warns her to rush to the hospital, thus saving her unborn baby’s life.
  • A badly burned man, scheduled for surgery, who obeys an angel’s command to praise God, and is miraculously healed the next morning.
  • A young woman driving alone at night in a strange city, who is guided straight to a police station after an attacker deliberately hits her car.
