To have faith is to have an awesome power, for it connects you to something outside of yourself and sometimes to something within yourself that can alter your way of life. Now, depending on what you put your faith in, this altered way of life can end up leading to great advantage or to great disappointment. One thing many Christians put their faith is in the concept of miraculous healing.

Sickness and disease are a scourge of humanity. Far too often we witness good and decent people contract some serious disease or malady and we watch as their quality of life goes from bad to worse.

Are we as Christians privy to that miraculous healing power today? Can we and should we stand in the path of illness, claiming the name of Jesus as our rightful miracle cure?
