    Theologian, humanitarian and charismatic priest, Fr Alex Ojacor, discuss with Fr Stan Chu Ilo on why he believes in miracles. Together they lay out the conditions for miracles in the biblical tradition and in Catholic beliefs and practices. They share their spiritual insights on why they are convinced that the search for, and claims about miracles in African churches are signs of faith and evidence of God's mighty deeds of power in the churches in Africa. The false claims about miracles, in some instances, do not invalidate the experience of God's great deeds in the lives of those who have faith and who come to God on their knees in humble prayers for divine intervention .
