healed by faith

Acts 3

v16

And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.

Who's faith was it? The man didn't know they were going to give him healing. Peter and John took him by the hand and raised him up. He might have had some faith too, but I think it was Peter and John's faith.

They were going up to pray, and they had powerful, life-changing faith. We should have great faith when we go to pray, so that people can be "healed" in every way.

It wasn't by Peter and John's own power and holiness, it was by faith. That's different, because it wasn't their own, it was faith in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
