    I know that pain and suffering can really test one's faith. It feels as though God has abandoned you. Reliance upon earthly doctors seems to be hit-and-miss in that they cannot resolve all issues or definitively cure all patients. We still need to pray in addition to taking pills and engaging in therapies.

    What I mean to say is that doctors never seem able to fix anything 100%. That's why prayer is still important.

    Let me ask you this. If doctors suddenly could cure all illnesses, would we then stop praying? That's why I think there is a greater meaning to suffering even if we don't think so while we're undergoing it.
