Oh yes.... depends on what your definition of magic is.  Is not a prayer a ritual.  is not an answered prayer the result of something magical?  
Is the art of life, living somewhere in between?

My definition of magic is anything you can't explain.  For example, in the eyes of children, presents "magically" appear under the tree at Christmas.

As a Christian, I believe in magic.  By eating bread and drinking wine, somehow I am made pure.  By putting a drop of olive oil (or holy water) on a person's head and muttering a few words, we believe we can heal their ailments.

Was it not magic when Jesus fed the multitude with five loaves and two fish?

Everything we do in faith is really an acceptance of magic.

The warning to Simon the magician was that certain gifts and magics cannot be bought.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

Exactly Aloha.  It cannot be bought. It is a gift, and we are given the how to use it, but it's up to us to fully understand it and then use it.  And agin, how we use it, is up to us.  I do not see black magic and white magic.  I see faith as the power, and good people and bad people.  The person is the black or the white.  What you do with that mana is up to you.

Sure Wind!

do the same spells but change the wording slightly (e.g. mentioning saints for protection spells and so on)

they will work just the same...

Christians can do magic just as long as you dont let what the church may say about you bother you. Or you dont use it to hurt someone else.

Christians can do magic just as well as pagans.  Take that as you will...

In the Bible, didn't someone (Paul?) even get into a magical contest with someone?

Elijah challenged the priests of Ba'al to a showdown.  Each team raised an alter, laid down sticks and an animal on the alter and called after their deity to consume the offering with fire.

Many of the miracles performed by Moses before Pharoah's court could be considered magick:  turning his staf into a serpent, changing water into blood, etc.

Even Jesus turned water into wine for the wedding feast and multiplied bread on two recorded occasions.
