Many people believe in the power of the prayer to heal others. If we are to believe that if prayers can heal people, could there be a purpose for illness? If God can heal an illness through prayer, can God have placed the illness for a purpose? What does it mean when one is healed with a prayer? Is it God’s approval of the healed person, or is it God’s approval of the prayer? Or could it be both? Some good questions to ponder about!
