Faith in your healing prayer

Faith might seem to be the least of the elements of spiritual sense, but when rightly based on the omnipotent goodness of God, to whom all things are possible, faith is a powerful force for healing.

Jesus’ teachings and example show what an effective vehicle faith in God can be in moving things forward. When the disciples had been unable to heal a child with a dramatic case of convulsions, Jesus told the father, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” The father cried out, “Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief” (Mark 9:23, 24). 

Faith in good was vying against fear of evil in the father’s and in the disciples’ thought. Jesus, understanding that the sickness was not in accord with divine law, asked the father to have faith only in a good outcome. Jesus demonstrated the power of such faith by healing the child.
