It would depend on the miracle, and how well demonstrated it was; if Jesus turned up, did a spot of water walking and then turned some water into wine, obviously I'd thank him - but I'd consider that it being a trick of some kind is the better explaination.
Hume made the argument that, by definition, any natural cause is a more convincing explaination, no matter how improbable than a supernatural cause. I'm not sure I'd go that far; but if you're going to make extraordinary claims you would need extraordinary proof.
