Necessity of Proof

For people used to thinking via logic, proof of the existence of God is essential. As such, events and elements like miracles and other phenomenon (i.e. the healing of the sick) are attributed to be the 'proof of God'. But for me, faith works in ways that are personal so that when one 'believes', proof that can validate belief is not required or needed as this is part of the belief.
