In 1998, Jerry Harned, Tim Eaton and I had an opportunity to work with a man who had experienced a “no-doubt-about-it” miracle. The kind of incident that gives you chills just to hear about it (more on that in a minute).

We were producing a documentary on the power of prayer. During pre-production, I was looking for stories of men and women who had been touched by God in response to their concerted prayers. A friend told me about a pastor in Houston, Texas who’d been afflicted with a disease that had damaged his vocal chords, destroyed his voice and seemingly ended his ministry. His name was Duane Miller.

This month’s featured film is the story of how Duane turned to God in the darkness of tragedy and trial. Watch it now and be sure to stay tuned all the way to the end. It includes an actual recording of the moment Duane Miller’s miracle occurred. You’ll never forget it.

During the past 20 years, I’ve watched this film many times. It always inspires me (and sends chills up my spine). I think you’ll see and hear why.

To God be the glory.
