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.

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.'
