Where are all the miracles? revised due to comments

What makes people have faith in God. Is it a prophecy that comes true, or is it a miracle that occurs or has occurred that makes us believe? Suppose Jesus did not heal and cure the sick, but only spread the teachings. Would Christianity be so popular today?

Even the Catholic Church today requires proof of a miracle before Saint hood is acclaimed on a person. We all want some kind of proof from above that the person is working on behalf of God. But the question arises do we all have the power to perform miracles,  or the ability to heal?

In the New Testament, the disciples  could not heal a person and asked Jesus to help them. Jesus was able to cure the person, and explained that the disciples could not heal the person because of their lack of faith.

So another question arises, if we are able to heal people, are we a representative of God? Has God blessed us with the power to heal because we understand the teachings? And if our prayer do not heal, should we not look within ourselves to find out why we can not heal?

Today we do not often see the healings and miracles that were written in our sacred books.  Will these prophets and miracle healers appear soon?  Or has the gift of healing been available to everyone  since the beginning of time? Some believe that it is because of the  lack of faith and understanding of God’s teachings that we cannot receive God’s blessings.  It is with this strong faith that comes from within that God allows us to heals the sick; but more important, gives them faith that God does exist.
