Humanity has prayed to deities since the dawn of time. They have prayed for wealth, for improved health or peace among their fellow man. Are prayers really answered? Is Heaven really listening to us? Does God even exist, or is he something born through the fear of our own mortality? Single mother, Melissa, is going to learn the truth about God. She wakes one night to discover an Angel in her home. He has come to grant her the greatest gift of all time. She can perform a single miracle for one person and one person alone. Melissa soon learns the difficulties of her gift. With so much pain and suffering in the world, who should she help? What happens to those she neglects? By looking through the eyes of God she discovers a world full of conflicts, both personal and global, but with only twenty-four hours to decide, who will she pick to save? A Gift from God is a short story not about faith or religion, but about human nature and tries to show that everyone is fighting their own battle.
