if the miracle would have a permanent effect, i would accomplish the miraculous means of enabling doctors and scientists to find a method of curing everyone of every human ill, mental, orthopedic, and all the various diseases. i also would enable the profession to bring back to normal the body, brains and bones now considered to be permanently impossible to correct.

If I could, I think I'd like to go back and re-live my childhood, but with the insights into life that I have now. Then, I could shrug off the teasing I had to deal with growing up, instead of letting it turn me into the almost painfully-shy person that I am today.

I guess it would be time travel. More specifically, there is a story in the Bible where Jesus is walking through a city, someone touched his robe and he said "I feel that some power has left me".
I would love to have been the one to touch the robe...feel whatever it was that the person felt. See him face to face...awesome.

I'd want to do something blatantly impossible, like fly, in an extremely public (videotaped) place, with lots of witnesses; let's say, the Super Bowl, or a presidential inauguration.
Just to watch the scientists go freakin' nuts trying to figure out how I did it.
