News - More power to prayer
by Life Positive
Researchers have carried out the study and found that the power of prayer can help the sick to recover, especially if the well-wisher is standing near the person while praying.
The healing power of prayer In fact, the vision and hearing of patients in their tests which looked into ‘proximal prayer’ or prayers near the patient, improved considerably after healing practitioners prayed for them. The world over, most of the prayer practised for healing is done near the patient’s bed or with the patient close by. For their study, researchers from Indiana University, USA, analysed the impact of healers on disadvantaged people with vision or hearing impairments in Mozambique and Brazil. They studied 14 rural Mozambican subjects who reported poor hearing and 11 who said they had failing sight, both before and after they received healing prayers. Using audiometer and vision charts the researchers found that two subjects with impaired hearing reduced the threshold at which they could detect sound by 50 decibels, and three subjects had their vision improve from 20/400.
Although baffled with and unable to explain these results, the researchers said that they would publish them in medical journals and pursue the revelation further. For the rest of humanity, this probably only confirms what we all know at some level. Sincere prayers manifest results and that includes healing prayers. Presumably, you are already praying; but if not, no better time to start than now.
