Prayer is not "doing nothing"

According to the Bible account given in the book of John, See John 4:46-53 . a nobleman's son was sick at Capernaum and "at the point of death." The nobleman urged Christ Jesus to "come down ere my child die." The Master's answer was "Go thy way; thy son liveth."

What is remarkable to me is that the nobleman did not say to Jesus, How do you know? You haven't done anything for him, or diagnosed his problem, or administered a potion to him!" Instead the Bible records that "the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way."
