To suggest that because someone (anyone) is NOT healed, there is a "problem" is in itself problematic. God heals whom He wants, when He wants, how He wants. If we disagree with His methods, then yes, we have a problem. But to suggest that lack of healing is a problem is to short-sightedly overlook the sovereignty of God. Simplistically stated, as with all prayer, there can be several responses: sometimes it is "Yes", sometimes it is "wait" or "later", sometimes it is "no", and God does not owe us an explanation for His decisions.

to assume that these things are “problems” is itself a problem.”

Night and day keep praying most earnestly that what is lacking in our faith may be supplied and that we would not be children in our thinking but in our thinking be mature. Proclaim the name of the LORD and ascribe greatness to our God! The Rock! His work is perfect, for all His ways are just; a God of faithfulness and without injustice, righteous and upright is He. Consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us, for the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God, for the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope. Let endurance have its perfect result, so that we may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. We do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
