lThe right to pray and receive the answer is given to every believer (John 14:13,14). The ministry of healing was given to us "the seventy" who represent the future workers of the Church. (Luck 10:1,9, & 19). It was given to all "them that believe" the Gospel, them that act on the Gospel, and the doers of the Word.
It is committed to "the elders" of the Church. (James 5:14) It is a bestowed upon the whole Church as one of its ministries and gifts until Jesus comes. (1 Cor. 12:9,10)
Jesus never commissioned anyone to preach the Gospel without including healing for the sick. He said, Whatever city you enter, heal the sick that are there. (Luke 10:8,9). That command still applies to the Gospel ministry today.

Interesting to me as often I have had this conversation with friends and other fellow Believers. Somehow we forget our right to ask for healing. Throughout both testaments the Lord is referred to as our Rapha (meaning :: the Lord of repair, rest or health, heal, mend, fix and cure). As well as the Lord is our Rophe (meaning :: our Doctor, our Physician, and our Healer.
With those strong words throughout the Word, how is it we forget to seek the Lord in our prayers with all of our aliments. Being mindful to be thankful, with a spirit full of repent and humility. Approach in full faith, knowing He can and will heal you completely as you yield to His Will.
All of you who have been reading or following my Blog, know I lost my Mother to cancer. So of course many may be thinking, gosh Sam how can you address the healing hands of the Lord when He did not heal your Mother. My answer to you is wow, how can you imagine for one second that is what happened. I get it, I understand that first reaction; it is however in selfishness. My Mother was at a place in life that the Lord called her home, she needed it, wanted it, and was in all honesty ready to go home.
It was the left behind that hurt - even that was a healing - speaking for myself the entire experience was the most sincere form of healing that any one person could have ever experienced. Thank you Lord!
