Christ not only worked miracles himself, but gave power to others to do so too. Did Christ calm the storm, walk on water, heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead? His disciples did, and so should we. We should all work great miracles in Jesus name. No miracle is beyond the power of God. All we need is FAITH!

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her. When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep." Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, "Young man, I say to you, arise." So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother. Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, "A great prophet has risen up among us"; and, "God has visited His people."
Mark 4:37-41: And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"
The success that we should have in our prayers is seen in that Jesus said, "If you shall ask anything in my name, I will do it." If you have been unsuccessful in receiving what you ask for after praying in Jesus name, it is not the failure of God to answer prayer, it is your lack of faith in miracles. Pray for stronger faith. Your faith in, and receptivity to what God sends is what determines how much you will receive. If Jesus said "that we can do greater works than these because I go unto my Father", he means JUST THAT! He is with His and our Father now. So if we believe his Word, we can now do greater works! We can be healed of any malady the devil may try to attack us with, if we ask for healing in Jesus name. And Believe!
