In the Gospels, Jesus spent a lot of time healing the sick. He taught His disciples to do the same. After His ascension, the early church continued to emulate what Jesus had taught them.

One of the great challenges of prayer is learning how to respond when God says "no" to something we have prayed for. Do we respond by running away? Getting angry? Praying less?

It can be tempting to think of prayer as just an exercise in obedience that helps us grow, but really does nothing to impact how God moves and works in the world.

Sometimes it's easier to cognitively understand the truths about God's love for us. How He views us versus what we truly know and apply in our hearts and minds. You may "know" how much God loves you. But does your heart feel and know that love? Or is it all cerebral? Do we know that He is for us? Or do we think He is trying to make our lives as har…
