1. I surely hope we pray for the sick. There is no restriction on praying for the sick as far as I know. wink

2. To hold to the biblical doctrine of God's sovereignty should produce a fervent desire to pray for the healing of one who is sick. Who else but God Almighty, our dear heavenly Father through His Spirit has the power to heal? The LORD God works through means, however, to bring about healing, comfort, etc. Praying over your injured child and waiting for God to heal him is akin to wishing someone warmth but not giving them a blanket and/or a heated place to stay.

In His grace,
