Correct.  Does your faith cause you to want to be closer to Christ...and to lead others to Christ as well?  Do you know someone, like in these examples, who is crying out to Jesus for His help?

In these last few examples, there is no mention of Jesus asking these people to do anything in the faith process.

Most of these recent examples followed the following steps:

By Faith:  They Were Healed
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for...
the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

1. What is the thing hoped for...or is not seen? What Is The Thing Hoped For: 
That Jesus would heal them from their diseases and infirmities.
2. What is man's part, if any? None in these recent examples.  Their healing was not dependent on them doing anything other than asking Jesus for help.  Jesus did not ask them to do anything prior to be healed.
3. What is God's part? Jesus healed them and in some cases forgave their sins.
4. How do they have this assurance and conviction that God would heal them?
  1. Understand the thing hoped for...or the thing not seen.
  2. Hear God's word (Faith comes by hearing...and hearing by the word of Christ.  Romans 10:17) to understand God's power and faithfulness to His promises.
  3. Do your part, if any.

  4. Trust God that He has done what He has said...and/or that He will do what He promises.

  5. Pray that God will help increase your belief and faith (Luke 17:5, Mark 9:23-24) and give you wisdom (James 1:5).

Now let us look at how Jesus prepared His disciples for the kind of faith they were to have.
