    Through Prayer and Faith many miracles can occur. From my own experiences I have seen having faith heal at least 2 people in my life. One from a tumor that was in a inoperable spot near the base of the scull next to the spinal conection, It dissapeared completely. This happened after she was told to have faith and it would be gone on the next doctor visit. It was still there but very small and one visit after that it was gone. Faith is the key!

    It depends on what you mean by "like he did in the Bible". Christ still heals miraculously, but I do not believe it is always by methods of man, laying on of hands, anointing with oil, etc. Perhaps sometimes that is the case.

    If someone attends a "healing meeting" and they are not healed, it is usually blamed on their lack of faith. It is not God's will for individuals to always be healed. Paul received a "thorn in the flesh" from which he was never healed (II Corinthians 12:7-10). God was glorified in his infirmity. Job suffered long so that God would get the glory. I know of individuals personally who have spent long terms in the hospital. They were able to witness for the Lord and promote His work in an area where it would have been impossible if they were healthy.

    But yes, God still heals according to His will in His time as it pleases Him.

    ALthough I love lifegate's answer, I must say something.  I have seen people healed and have seen people not get their healing.  Jesus heals the same today as he did in the Bible because healing comes through faith. 

    That is not to say everyone will be healed or that their faith is weak if they are not healed.  Honestly, I cannot tell anyone why they are not healed, I can only say, "Praise the Lord if He heals me." and, "Praise the Lord if He doesn't."
