What did God say today? God is speaking powerfully through the miraculous daily collisions of heaven and earth.

The Touched by Heaven podcast shares encounters with angels, divine interventions, visions, near-death experiences, and God-incidents to fortify the faithful and awaken the fallen away.

The future Fr. Michael was having a difficult time praying to the heavenly Father. Where was the response? As a seminarian, he just wasn't hearing anything from above. Then, one day, he took the advice of Jesus.

The Son of God has told us in Scripture that the way to the Father is through the Son. So, Michael, who was behind the wheel of his old pickup truck took his prayers to Jesus. 'Show me the Father,' said young Michael. He glanced to the right passenger seat and found a smiling Jesus looking back at him. That was the beginning.

You are a beloved adopted son or daughter of the Father. Back in the early days of the church, it was Roman law that if you found your newborn child to be defective, you could throw the child away. Just leave it on the side of the road. However, if you adopted a child, you were not allowed to disown the child. You were bound together forever! We need to remember that as we walk through life's journey. We are forever His adopted children. He is always there and loving us as no one else can.

Unfortunately, because we all have defective fathers, and perhaps a defective way of looking at the 'Old Testament God,' we may be approaching Him in a defective way. Fr. Michael Denk relives his supernatural experience with Jesus in the cab of his truck, as well as the best way to approach Him in prayer.

And then there is Trapper and his dad's interesting way of welcoming newborns into the world. The Flying Wallendas would've loved it!
