I thought many Freepers would be interested in this. And, for those who may not know, the Southern Medical Journal is a well-respected medical publication.

Whether or not these prayers are working by the exact method they claim to (and as a Christian, I believe in many instances they can be) there is something about human closeness and touch that is missing in today’s hospital settings, and under Obamacare this depersonalization can only get worse.
What would one do for a control study? Maybe to hold the patient’s hand, massage his head, etc. and read him a batch of secular get well wishes?

The benefits of hearing someone pray for you makes sense to me. And didn’t Jesus usually go to see those he healed?

the Southern Medical Journal is a well-respected medical publication.
I think Granny Clampett had a couple of articles published in there.
