God's Spirit is everywhere.
Miracles Every Day is the story of Dr. Issam Nemeh, a Cleveland-based physician and devout Catholic who has prayed over tens of thousands of people from all faiths and all walks of life in the past two decades. The result? Miracles. Injuries healed, cancers cured, sight and hearing restored. Yet, as Dr. Nemeh will be the first to point out, “the miracles are just to get our attention.” The healings do not originate from him, but from God. It is this humility and dedication to those in need that have won him the respect and trust of laypeople and religious leaders alike.
This inspiring chronicle, beautifully told by author Maura Poston Zagrans, traces the lives of the doctor and his dedicated wife, Kathy, and brings us the uplifting stories of the many people who have been healed through one man's powerful faith. Miracles Every Day is a compelling reminder of God's individual and unconditional love for each one of us. Along the way you will meet the dedicated family members, volunteers, and clergy who support the Nemehs in their work. They speak of a ministry of hope, of lives changed and saved through not just the power of prayer, but through the awesome Spirit-driven power of love.
Maura Poston Zagrans interviewed a wide spectrum of professionals and academics in writing this nonfiction narrative of Reverend David T. Link. To get the full story, she went behind the razor wire, where she spoke with and photographed prisoners at maximum-, medium-, and minimum-security facilities.

“Miracles Every Day is an astonishing book not just because the story of a man's ability to heal is real, but because you can sense the truth of this man's power and grace on every page. This book renews your faith in prayer, healing, and the Divine.”
– Caroline Myss, author of Defy Gravity and Anatomy of the Spirit
“We read a lot about spiritual and miraculous healing in the Gospels and very little about it in the modern world. We all have a need for healing. This book will help you work out what healing you need.”
– Matthew Kelly, New York Times bestselling author of Rediscovering Catholicism and The Rhythm of Life
“I could not help but be deeply impressed by the awesome healings in Miracles Every Day and the love of God and neighbor that runs through all of Dr. Nemeh’s work. I hope people of all backgrounds, and especially people in the medical field, will read this book. It can enrich our lives and open our minds to the awesome goodness and healing love that has touched so many lives.”
– Fr. Joseph F. Girzone
“This book will give many, many people the one thing that makes miracles happen but is in dangerously short supply today ... hope.”
– Therese Borchard, author of Beyond Blue
