===Icons in The Old Testament===
Pictures of cherubim on temple door, on temple walls are mentioned in Old Testament in III Kings 6:29. If there would be an interdiction of all images, the groups claiming this interdiction would not use any images, photos or movies and Old Testament would probably not describe the Temple as having images of cherubim.
 
===Icons with unknown author===
There are several icons with unknown author that were found done after people were praying. One such example is [http://ro.orthodoxwiki.org/Icoana_Maicii_Domnului_Prodromi%C5%A3a Prodomitra icon.] The first draft was not liked by the icon writer and he prayed for help and he found the icon done. Another example is the icon of Saint George and in this example several monks did not agree on the patron Saint of their Church. They asked God for decision letting an empty icon support in the Church and praying for God to show the Patron Saint. After several days of prayer they did find an icon of Saint George already painted in the Church.
 
===Miracle performing icons===
As we saw the icon made by Jesus did perform a miracle, helping King Abgar escape partially of leprosy. Today there are many miracle performing icons.
