7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:28

James 5:14-15
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Mark 2
Jesus Forgives and Heals a Paralytic

1 And again He entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that He was in the house. 2 Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them. 3 Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. 4 And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying.
5 When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”
6 And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, 7 “Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
8 But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? 9 Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? 10 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins” — He said to the paralytic, 11 “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” 12 Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”

Luke 10:33-34
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

Acts 3:1-16
1 Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple; 3 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. 4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” 5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. 6 Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” 7 And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up, and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. 8 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God. 10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

Many people at St Andrew’s have been healed when God answered his prayer of Faith:
"Our Loving Father, we come to you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord for this your servant who has a need for healing. We thank you that you have made a promise in your word to raise him up so that his need is met. We now pray the prayer of faith so that your promise is made effective in full and blessed reality in his life."

Rev Jim Holbeck - What is the Purpose of Healing?
(The Rev. Jim Holbeck is an Anglican minister and was the leader of the Healing Ministry at St Andrew's Cathedral, Sydney for many years.)
The purpose is to glorify God and to bring people to reconciliation with God.

To quote Rev Jim Holbeck words at one of his teaching about Healing: "We need to bring the Kingdom of God to the broken hearted but we also need to plant the Kingdom of God inside them."

"Healing comes in the Lord's way and in his time. Paul wrote in Colossians 4:2, ‘Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with thanksgiving.’ He knew we need to keep our spiritual eyes open, to see how God answers our prayers. If we're really honest, we have to admit that so often in our prayers we've got it all worked out as to how best God might answer them. It will be in His way, and at His time.
"We often pray, expecting that God will answer in the way we think best. But His way may be quite different from what we imagined. His timetable may be much slower than ours. As Isaiah wrote so long ago; ‘God's thoughts are not our thoughts, neither are his ways our ways.’ We might add, neither is His timetable our timetable. This is especially so in healing.
"Often we have people come to our services for physical healing and through his word God shows them their need for salvation. They are saved, and then much later find the healing. Others miss the answer to their prayers because they are impatient. When it hasn't come according to their timetable they get resentful and hinder the healing that was coming to them in the days ahead. We may be sure that when God's answer comes it will always be to His greater glory and to our greater good."
