Faith healing, particularly the TV faith healers, have been debunked many times. Try a book called "The Faith Healers" by the Amazing Randi for how they perpetuate the scam. There was also an excellent Caadian documentary on the faith healer Benny Hinn. They tracked his "healings" and discovered he was a complete fraud. The faithful still ine up with money in their hands sadly enough.

It has been found out that prayers has got power to heal.by praying our mind get relaxed and the stress hormones also will be less and when you are at prayer or at meditaion ,when you are fully concentrated you lose contact with your mind and you will connected with the outer connscouisnes.it is a universally agrrable fact that meditation will make you relax and and relax means your blood pressuer is normal your heart will beat in the rhytham which will eventually lead to a cure slowly but steadly . i think at the time of prayer as you saw in television people get so immersed there occurs a spiritual healing the power of god or spirit one may call and it does something which helps to cure especially those like paralysis and arthritis etc .here i think the mental power works.

yes, i believe in it and i believe in GOD a lot. prayers helps a lot. one can cure a person no doubt in it. If you staright a way asks me "DOES GOD heal in response to prayer?" my answer will be "YES". However Godwill be the one to decide what form healing will take and by what method HE will bring healing in response to prayer.We cannot treat GOD'S holy , precious, now speaking words as if it were in a catalogue from which we can place an order at the divine warehouse. GOD does not deliver , pre-packaged , look-alike , miracles upon demands.he has a perfect good , pleasing and tailor made design for each situation on earth.GOD'S way is to prepare the answer before the need appears.Before you knew about the illness, GOD knew about it. GOD heals in many ways.when you pray for a person who is sick , either something as simple as a headache or as life threatning as cancer - GOD heals. Your prayers access HIS powers and HE alwayz intervenes directly because of your prayers. I believe in GOD and i think everything which is going around is only because of HIM.

i don beleive in the power of prayers ,but one of the i have a doubt that why every body is not getting cured by prayers and if disease arises due to his wrong lifestyly after prayers he will get cured from diseases ,but does it changes his lifestyly ,if he continues with his old lifestyle whether he will affect the same diseases ,and he may take prayers as a licence to continue with his bad habit?

Faith do works.But it is faith of your in God.if you really have strong faith & you are a true person God do listens to you.My Father in law is suffering from Parkinson & he was diagnosed much later.That tim doctors said that his condition cannot improve.At that time he could move nor recognise.But we did not loose faith on God & kept praying.Now he has improved so much that Doctor themselves are amazed.Many time Doctors also tells us to pray.It is a way of connecting to God.
