Jesus said to his disciples before he ascended into Heaven, “these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name … they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover” (Mark 16:17,18).
Miraculous healings in the name of Jesus not only occur during the lives of the apostles and saints throughout history, but also after their deaths. Time and time again God has granted countless healings through the intercession of a saint.
While miracles are never guaranteed and only occur within God’s divine plan, it is always acceptable to pray to these saints for healing. Our prayers are always heard and we receive an answer to them, though it may not be in the way we expected.
