    In a survey by research company ComRes and commissioned by BBC Local Radio, it was found that 37% of people who identify themselves as Christian have never asked or prayed for a miracle. It likewise revealed that 62% believed that miracles are possible, 43% said they have prayed for one miraculous act at least once, while 29% said their prayer was answered. Also, almost 75% of respondents said miraculous signs are possible, and adults aged 24 years and below were more likely to believe that some miracles can happen today.

    It’s interesting to see that more than half the population hold the view that miracles are possible. This would suggest to me that people are not as closed to the prospect of things happening outside our human experience which cannot be explained.

    The survey was conducted in August, involving 2002 British adults who took part in a phone interview.

    According to Graham Nicholls, director of the Affinity network of 1,200 evangelical churches, the results reflect the opinions of both inside and outside of the Church. “It’s interesting to see that more than half the population hold the view that miracles are possible. This would suggest to me that people are not as closed to the prospect of things happening outside our human experience which cannot be explained.”

    Results also showed that among people who take part in a religious service or activity at least once a month, only 37% believed the Biblical stories about Jesus performing miracles. “It was a challenge to see that less than half of people who attend religious services believe the Biblical accounts of the miracles of Jesus, or expect God to ever answer prayer in a miraculous way,” Nicholls said. He added that it will be challenging for church leaders to clearly explain the power of God.
