All Christians believe that Jesus had great power and He can heal people from their ailments. While reading the Gospel there are many accounts mentioned that show the healing powers of Jesus.
Even till today, the holy water is considered to have healing powers and many priests across the world use it to heal an ailing person.
This is not a phenomenon which can be proven scientifically or medially but this is an account of faith and people who have the belief find their remedies in religion. There are also several cases where healings have worked according to the Christian faith. Severe cases of cancer and other terminal conditions have found their remedies in Christianity through the healing powers of Jesus.
According to psychology, the mind has great powers to heal. Often when a person is struck with an illness, his entire constituency including the mind is weakened. During this time it is very difficult to cure the person just by using medications. However, many people who are religious because of their suffering turn to spirituality and God. When they start investing immense faith in God and religion, even their mental constituency becomes very strong. This gives them the strength to fight any kind of disease. And, therefore this strength is directly being derived from spirituality. A spiritual person leaves everything to God with immense faith and this itself takes away the stress of the disease. In turn when they feel more confident, they also feel good about themselves and feel less like a patient. This leads them to think that their disease is being cured.
Great healings of Christian faith have been chronicled over times. There is no scientific explanation but there are evidences where people visit certain Christian shrines and come out cured. For example, the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes is popular among people for its miracle powers to heal any terminal illness.
