Prayer and Healing
Brian Benjamin Carter

On Medline, a service of the National Library of Medicine, provides access to over 11 million MEDLINE citations back to the mid-1960's and additional life science journals), I have found 5 studies, 4 of which are randomized and placebo-controlled that prove SCIENTIFICALLY that prayer helps people heal faster and more effectively.

Did you get that? It's been proven scientifically that PRAYER HEALS. With that in mind, I am going to be adding a section to the PULSE on the power of prayer. I would like to include some structure for those of you readers who are interested to participate in some long-distance healing prayer.

Personally, I notice a huge difference in my attitude, effectiveness, and in my interactions with patients when I pray that God work through me and heals them. I am more and more sure that it is God who heals. When the gardener plants a seed, it is God that makes it grow. When a medical practitioner intervenes, in the same way, it is God who does the actual healing.

Your spiritual condition is the PRIMARY factor in the quality of your life, health, relationships, and prosperity. Of this I am convinced.

Research on Prayer:

  1. A randomized, controlled trial of the effects of remote, intercessory prayer on outcomes in patients admitted to the coronary care unit
  2. Positive therapeutic effects of intercessory prayer in a coronary care unit population
  3. A randomized double-blind study of the effect of distant healing in a population with advanced AIDS. Report of a small scale study
  4. Intercessory prayer in the treatment of alcohol abuse and dependence: a pilot investigation
  5. An experimental study of the effects of distant, intercessory prayer on self-esteem, anxiety, and depression
