Recently, a post showed up on my Twitter feed with this question:
I’ve never understood praying for the sick. Why ask the all powerful being who made them sick to reverse their decision?
Granted, this is probably coming from a non-believer, Atheist, or some other kind of belief, as a joke. But, seriously, I still think the question is valid that even some Christ-followers get hung up on. “Why does God make people sick or worse?”
