It’s a Miracle

What Happens When a Lifeguard Needs to Be Rescued?

Upon receiving the news Doug had been put on the ventilator, Cherie sent via text message to the family group this first of many prayers she would pray for Doug using God’s word: ”‘But now I will heal and mend them. I will make them whole and bless them with an abundance of peace and security’ (Jeremiah 33:6 CEB). Amen.“

Protector. Rescuer. Hero. 

For thirty-four years Doug Anderson was the hero of Manasquan Beach, rescuing swimmers from riptides and the rocky shore. After receiving his second COVID-19 vaccine, Doug needed rescuing himself. Just when his friends and family thought they could breathe easy, they had to embark on the prayer battle of their lives—and for his life.

In It’s a Miracle, Doug’s father and sister tell the story and share photos of his nineteen-month recovery when it seemed the world was spinning out of control, and despair and tragedy were everywhere. But his family had a secret weapon: a worldwide army of prayer warriors. Doug’s inspiring story highlights the importance of prayer—and the boundless love of God.
