Healing Through Prayer

Faith Healing, also known as Healing through Prayer, is the belief that religious faith can bring about healing either through prayers or rituals that, according to adherents, evoke a divine presence and power toward correcting any disease or disability. Belief in divine intervention in illness or healing is related to religious belief. In common usage, "faith healing" refers to notably overt and ritualistic practices of communal prayer and gestures (such as laying on of hands) that are claimed to solicit divine intervention in initiating spiritual and actual healing.

In the Christian tradition there are stories of (miraculous) healing in both the Old and New Testament. Jesus, the disciples, and later on in both Catholic and Protestant accounts there are stories of faith healing.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference

Proverbs 3, 5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not             on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.
