Why Doesn't God Heal Everyone?

Publication Date



This question has perplexed God-honoring, praying, trusting, and believing folks since the Garden Fall. Prayer is a two-way communication with God that flows from a deep, personal relationship with Him. We must never assume that if we get our words right or ask with enough feeling we obligate God to grant our request for healing. Ultimately we do not find our hope in answered prayer - we find our hope in Him alone.
