Jesus never said "no" to anyone who asked Him to heal them. He
never pushed anyone away that really wanted His help. Many times he said "Your faith has made you well"
Look at these 2 examples of Jesus love and compassion for
18 As Jesus was saying this, the leader of a
synagogue came and knelt before him. “My daughter has just died,” he said, “but you can bring her back to life again if you just come and lay your hand on her.”
(Notice the confidence this leader had in
19 So Jesus and his disciples got up and went with
him. 20 Just then a woman who had suffered for twelve
years with constant bleeding came up behind him. She touched the fringe of his robe, 21 for she thought, “If I can just touch his robe,
I will be healed.” (Notice the confidence she had in
22 Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said,
“Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you
well.” And the woman was healed at that moment. (Notice
He reponded to their faith. They didn't muster it up themselves or use some "name it & claim it vodoo, HE
responded to their faith, HE did it.)
23 When Jesus arrived at the official’s home, he saw
the noisy crowd and heard the funeral music. 24 “Get out!” he told them.
“The girl isn’t dead; she’s only asleep.” But the crowd laughed at him.
25 After the crowd was put outside, however, Jesus
went in and took the girl by the hand, and she stood up! 26 The report of this miracle swept through the
entire countryside. (Notice Jesus removed all the scoffers, all the
unbelief BEFORE he raised her.)
On the other side of the coin Jesus went to His home town and found
1 Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied
by his disciples. 2 When
the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.
“Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What
are these remarkable miracles he is performing? 3 Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the
brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.
4 Jesus said
to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his
own home.” 5 He
could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. 6 He was amazed at their lack of faith.
I can just see Jesus thinking, What's wrong? Don't they know I am real and they can
be really blessed here? So what I am trying to say here is this. When you pray, and when you ask us to
pray for you, believe in the best answer you could get. Have faith
and trust God. If you're finding it hard to believe tell Him that and ask Him to help your
faith. Believe because He really, really cares for you. Forget about all the nah sayers & past
experiences that want to tell you it can't be done. Look at what Greg says:
Don't build up the past in your mind. Remember it for what it was.
Don't allow the enemy to pull you down by fantasizing about it. Protect your mind, and don't look

Here is one of my favorite books on prayer. Andrew has the gift of healing and actually
raised his son from the dead after he was dead for 5 hours. His life speaks volumes on the grace & love
