This book is an account of the author's personal journey through healing and into a healing ministry. With a simple and down-to-earth style, the author demystifies the idea of healing the sick through prayer. His goal is to encourage others to use the power of prayer as a main line of defense. He explains the basic theology of healing and how to pray for yourself and others. There is also a section that discusses the times when God does not heal. Should we always expect healing? This introduction to the subject of prayer and healing balances the miraculous with the practical and draws from such well-know sources as John Wimber, Francis McNutt, Smith Wigglesworth, and others. Many personal stories included.
