Keep Friends & Neighbors in Your Prayers

There have been numerous studies over the years that have investigated whether the power of prayer works. Researchers like Dr. Elizabeth Targ in San Francisco selected practicing healers from a number of traditions Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Indian shamans and had them pray for 20 patients with advanced AIDS and compared their progress to a control group of 20 other AIDS patients. According to her, the prayed-for patients had fewer and less severe new illnesses, fewer doctor visits, fewer hospitalizations and were generally in better moods than those in the control group. "Prayer may be an effective adjunct to standard medical care," says cardiac researcher William Harris, Ph.D., who headed a study of cardiac patients at St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. Harris concluded that the group receiving prayers fared 11% better than the group that didn't, a number considered statistically significant.

We'd like to believe that prayers do help, and here is a friend and neighbor who could use your prayers now.
