Jesus heals by miracles! If you want an answer to prayer, that answer is found in the Bible. I want to start by reading a passage from Mark 2, the healing of the paralytic man. These four men were so desperate, they knew only Jesus could heal their friend; no hospital could cure him, no medicine could relieve the symptoms. This man needed a miracle! The crowd was full of expectation: they knew Jesus could heal the sick, the paralysed man's friends knew He could heal the sick. What was Jesus going to do? To prove that He has power on earth to forgive sins, Jesus turned to the paralysed man and said, "Stand up, take up your mat, and go home." Immediately the paralysed man arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God!

Healing is an integral part of the atonement. It has been bought for us, together with our salvation, through Christ's suffering and death. We need to apply the same level of faith to our deliverance from sickness as we do to our deliverance from sin.
