According to Your Faith in Christ

Alma 15:6-11
6 And it came to pass that Alma said unto him, taking him by the hand: Believest thou in the power of Christ unto salvation?
7 And he answered and said: Yea, I believe all the words that thou hast taught.
8 And Alma said: If thou believest in the redemption of Christ thou canst be healed.
9 And he said: Yea, I believe according to thy words.
10 And then Alma cried unto the Lord, saying: O Lord our God, have mercy on this man, and heal him according to his faith which is in Christ.
11 And when Alma had said these words, Zeezrom leaped upon his feet, and began to walk; and this was done to the great astonishment of all the people; and the knowledge of this went forth throughout all the land of Sidom.

Bryan has done this same kind of question & answer thing with Kaden before a blessing. I think it's a good thing to do because it teaches the person where to put their faith and gratitude for the blessing.
It's kind of funny because a few months later Kaden got the stomach flu and I walked into the bathroom where Kaden had his head resting on the toilet seat and he was praying so hard that Jesus would help him to feel better. "Please Jesus, help me to feel better. I don't want to be sick anymore." It was really cute and pathetic.
