The term used to describe the process of curing a sickness by belief in a god instead of using scientific methods. This technique requires the belief that a miracle will happen.
1. Bill was relying on faith healing to cure his cancer when he went to the religious tent revival. He had given up regular medical treatment against the advice of his doctor.

2. Bob had given his problem of alcoholism to a higher power and was now relying on the spiritual faith healing of alcoholics anonymous to save him.

Belief in the power of intercessionary prayer to cure disease or illness. Separated from doing nothing only by the fact that you've probably put your hands together and talked to yourself somewhat.
Accounts of successful faith healing are about as credible as a person of average height standing right in front of you and declaring, 'I am seventeen feet tall, honest guv.'
