Christian healing and the hope that is in us

Prayer heals. It serves to redeem, uplift, and regenerate human lives. Prayer voices the hope and expectation of salvation. And thousands of rational, intelligent individuals today—followers of Christ Jesus' own method of healing—regularly turn to God in prayer. They do so without reservation when confronted with physical illness as well as when facing other human difficulties or moral dilemmas. Their fidelity and constancy are rewarded; their lives are renewed.

The First Epistle of Peter encourages us, "Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you."I Pet. 3:15. And it is also worth asking ourselves about the hope in our own prayer, for one's spiritual progress depends in large measure on what he really expects from prayer and what his motives are.
