I don't have any silver or gold - I don't have any money - but I do have something I can give to you...
Peter leans over and takes the man by his right hand, and says "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!". As the beggar takes hold of Peter's hand he feels an amazing tingling warmth go right through him, down his arm, into his body, through to his legs and feet - and - starts - to - get - up!
This man, who had never walked in his life, was starting to stand up! The bones in his feet and ankles suddenly become strong, and he gets to his feet. I expect he is hanging on to Peter and John! Then he takes one step and another step - and another, and another, until in the end he's jumping about and hopping and skipping and shouting "Thank you Lord, oh thank you Lord, Look I can walk, I can run!"
