Prayer for a Loved One - Healing In The Bible

One of the most challenging times of any Christian’s walk with God is when they or a loved one face a time of illness.

So what does the Bible say about healing? The more that you study the answers, the more you will be able to find the strength to trust God even during the most difficult challenges.
