Only a miracle from God could have saved the lives of 12 coal miners trapped deep inside a West Virginia mine after an explosion on Monday. For 42 hours, friends and family gathered to pray to God for such a miracle, and for a brief moment, due to what was apprently a miscommunication, it was thought that God had indeed chosen to save the 12 miners. Alas, that turned out not to be the case. It is now believed that only a miracle from God could bring the 12 coal miners back from the dead. Friends and family of the victims have gathered to pray for such a miracle.
