I Prayed for a Miracle and God Sent a Vision of an Angel

I was on my way to work, stopping as I usually do, at a nearby parking lot, to read my Bible and pray. I was desperate and in dire need of help, so I asked God “Boldly” for a miracle, concerning my situation.

That same day, at lunch time, I went to get my nails done. While the lady was doing my nails, I closed my eyes, leaned back in my chair, and I had a vision. It was like being in a movie theater. I saw a large ball, it was what seemed like glittering, multicolored, grains of sand,(made up of every color under the Sun). The sand was moving slowly, inside the ball. After I realized what I was seeing, I said to myself, “I do not have an imagination like this!” After I thought that, the ball turned into a star. It too, was filled with grains of glittering, multicolored, sand, (made up of every color under the Sun). The sand was moving slowly, inside the star. Once I realized what I was seeing, an Angel burst out of the star, wearing light blue and dark blue garments, and The Angel had blond hair.

I was astounded, and at the same time, enthralled, to say the least, with the Angel’s smile. It was so lovely, full of love and compassion. There are no other words I can use to describe the Angel’s smile, because I have never seen a smile like that in my entire life, not even on TV. The Angel was looking right into my eyes. Stunned, I opened my eyes, and when I did, I saw the outline of a very large Angel, which was leaving my left side. God answered my prayer through a vision. After what I saw, I had no doubt in my mind that everything would work out for me. It has, indeed! Thank you, Jesus for comforting me in such an amazing way.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:” Acts 2:17 (KJV)

Angels are ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation.” Hebrews 1:14 (NIV)

My Heavenly Father’s Gift To Me

For me, it was a time of disappointed. I felt deserted because I was left out of something important to me.

Several days later, I was working around the my house, and I began to think about buying a talking bird to keep me company. I started talking to my heavenly Father about it. I told Him about all the reasons why I couldn’t afford a talking bird. My mom had several talking birds in our home throughout the years; therefore, I knew what good company they could be. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to  spend several hundred dollars to buy a talking bird, so I asked my heavenly Father to send one to me.

No more than two days later, I was in my front yard, sweeping the curb, and I looked up into a nearby tree and saw a green bird. As soon as I noticed it, the bird flew down and landed on my driveway, in front of me. It let me pick it up, so I took it into my house, put it in the bathroom, closed the door and went to the pet store, to buy food and a cage for the my bird.

I didn’t know what kind of bird it was, so I described it to one of the employees at the pet store, and they told me that I had just adopted a talking Quaker Parakeet, which I named Crackers. He lived with me until he died, 10 years later. I was so very touched, and I was also stunned that my heavenly Father, not only answered my prayer, but He answered it in two days.

God’s word says, “If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!” Matthew 7:11 (NIV)

It showed me how much our heavenly Father loves me and cares about everything that concerns me. He will give you the desires of your heart, too!
