Never displaced from good

People in Ethiopia, where I am living, are being internally displaced because of an escalating civil war, and some are fleeing to neighboring countries. I have been praying because I have been deeply distressed by the magnitude of this problem and what I have been hearing in the news and in the community around me.
Why would I doubt the likelihood of healing, especially given the many healings I had already witnessed and experienced?

Agreeing with God

Most people think of prayer as something we do. We ask or even beg God to do something for us. Maybe we tell God about the problem. All prayer is beneficial, because turning to God is the first step in healing, but this week's guest has learned that the most effective prayer starts when God talks and we listen.
