While I believe in neither these Buddhist powers, nor miracles, it must be recognised that if the Buddhist Powers are real (and if you believe in Christian miracles, then you cannot logically preclude them in other faiths [and I use the word "faith" in its loosest sense]), then the ability to perform miracles is not limited to those professing a belief in the Christian God.

This is circular reasoning. Why can't one logically preclude miracles to other faiths if one believes in Christian miracles? Christians would even say it's the only logical assumption -- miracles happen purely because of God's will, so only people who are channeling God can make miracles happen.
