Now many signs and wonders were regularly done among the people by the hands of the apostles. And they were all together in Solomon's Portico. None of the rest dared join them, but the people held them in high esteem. And more than ever believers were added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, so that they even carried out the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them. The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed.

In Exodus 15:26, God calls Himself Jehovah-Rapha—the God who heals you. We find plenty of Scriptural support for that claim. We have also heard of and experienced His healing power firsthand. Sometimes I have wondered why my prayers have not resulted in dramatic healings like the ones described in this passage. What is striking to me here is that Peter did not set out to get anybody healed. He lived faithfully and allowed God to work through him. If we do the same and pay attention to what is going on around us, I imagine we will find the same to be true—recognizing that some of the most important healings are not physical.
