Healing and Faith

1. Review Matthew 17:14-21, and list three things the Savior said were needed for the disciples to heal the man.

2. Read each of the following references. Next to the reference, write what it teaches about what is needed for miracles to happen.

3 Nephi 18:20-  "And whatsoever ye shall ask the father in my name, which is right, believing that ye shall receive, behold it shall be given unto you."  We can be given miracles according to our faith. We need to be believing and have faith. We have been told that even if we had the faith the size of a mustard seed we could experience great miracles.

D&C 50:29- "And if ye are purified and cleansed for all sin, ye shall ask whatsoever you will in the name of Jesus and it shall be done." When we ask for things we need to be worthy of the results that can come. As we are clean and pure and obedient to the commandments of God we can receive miracles in our lives.

D&C 42:48- "And again, it shall come to pass that he that hath faith in me to be healed, and is not appointed unto death, shall be healed." Again we need to have faith. If we exercise even a particle of faith and let the desire work within us we can be healed. Faith is an action word and us such we have to exercise it. We are taught in Ether 12:6 that faith is things which are hoped for and not seen.
