In Matthew nine, a bleeding woman was healed because of her faith (ESV). Jesus considered not only her condition, but her spiritual health as well. This aspect of Jesus’ ministry is seen in these environments and helps healing hospitals succeed in their care of patients. This philosophy is backwards in the medical world. Only the physical needs are considered in most hospitals and this new concept has the influence to change it (Eberst, 2008).

Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working (James 5:13-16).
