The inner peace and strength that comes from having faith in the power of God to impact daily life can be seen in many ways.

The mere touch of Jesus's cloak cured a faithful woman of a bleeding disease of many years, as Jesus told her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering." (Mark 5:34) Miracles of healing continue to happen to this day; medical research supports the impact of prayer and a religious faith upon the healing process.

Jesus often gave lessons about how to relate to other people, lessons that often seem contradictory to the values of the world because they are based on the values of the Kingdom of God. Understanding the importance of valuing all persons, endeavoring to bring about and maintain peace, and putting others before oneself - attitudes such as these are based on the faith that God's power will bring salvation to those who serve God in this world.
