    SOUTHLAKE, TEXAS (ANS) -- As a Christian parent, Dr. James Mahoney prays for his children when they are sick or hurt. In church, he prays and asks the Lord to heal sick friends. “So doesn't it make sense that when I walk into my medical practice each day, I should pray with my patients?” Mahoney wrote in a recent article. “And shouldn't the way I practice medicine give patients every opportunity to get well?” That notwithstanding, some Christian physicians and patients still have a hard time mixing their faith and their medical practice, Mahoney wrote. He added, “Since prayer costs...

    An AIDS patient writes a letter to the HIV virus, forgiving it for the harm it’s done him and thanking it for inspiring him to live a fuller life. A recovering alcoholic reminds herself to “let go and let God.” Parents pray to see their son as “the perfect child of God” rather than call a doctor to prescribe medication for his earache. A collective of incorporeal beings sends this message to a best-selling author: “There is nothing you cannot be, do, or have.” What do these people have in common? All of them are heirs of the religious philosophy...

    Because the universe is an energy system and has an inherent order, there is always a response to prayer. This is not belief, supposition, or simply wishful teaching. Prayer has been extensively studied and proven in double- and triple-blind studies. Prayer is energy, and has definite action observable in the external consensual world. There are numerous reference materials on this fascinating subject. Dr. Harold Koenig, an associate professor of medicine at Duke University and the country's leading authority on faith-and-medicine studies, performed academic research that shows that prayer has beneficial health effects, primarily for the person who does the praying....

    Prayers from distant congregations did not affect patients' recovery from coronary artery procedures, but bedside therapies using music and touch before surgery reduced stress and offered a slight advantage in survival, scientists reported Friday. The study, published in the Lancet medical journal, looked at 748 patients at nine U.S. medical centers. Patients were randomly chosen to receive off-site prayer, bedside therapy, both treatments or none. "This is a test of whether medicine can help people do what they've already been doing for thousands of years in virtually every culture in the world," said Dr. Mitchell W. Krucoff, a cardiologist at...

    Fellow Freepers, I need your prayers. Living in the Atlanta suburbs, I use my mountain bike, along with public transportation, to commute to and from work. I use sidewalks to stay out of traffic, when it is convenient. I consider myself a pretty good rider, and wear my helmet all of the time (almost). Last Thursday, as I was on my way to the Lindbergh MARTA station, I made a manuever off of the sidewalk to go around two pedestrians. Upon my transition back onto the sidewalk, I made an error in approaching the curb (too parallel), my back tire...

    VATICAN CITY, APRIL 10, 2005 (Zenit.org).- A cardinal who worked closely with John Paul II says that he was once cured of a serious throat condition after the Pope prayed for him and touched the affected area. Cardinal Francesco Marchisano, archpriest of St. Peter's Basilica, revealed details of the incident on Saturday, the second day of the nine days of Masses celebrated for the Holy Father's eternal rest. The Italian cardinal, a friend of Karol Wojtyla's since 1962, spoke of his previously unpublicized healing during the Mass he celebrated in the basilica with Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz, the Pope's personal secretary....

    Pope John Paul II, while on a visit in Mexico in 1990, has reportedly healed a boy with cancer? The boy who was diagnosed with leukemia, was declared terminally ill by doctors. He is now 19 years old and is in good health. During the Pope's visit, his parents pushed themselves through the crowd and presented their then 3 year old son to the Pontiff's arms and asked the Pope to bless him. Then John Paul whispered something to the boy. To the doctors' surprise afterwards, he was now cured from the dreaded disease. The doctors attest to the miraculous...

The bones were exhumed, cataloged, and effectively forgotten since there was so little known about the person.

    CLEVELAND -- A team of Cleveland faith healers has achieved an astonishing rate of success in treating thousands of seriously ill people, NewsChannel5 reported. Many are calling these healings, miracles. It's a phenomenon that's even impressing Cleveland doctors. As Ted Henry reported, this word-of-mouth Catholic ministry has somehow managed to escape broad public attention, until now. Faith healers meet in churches all over Greater Cleveland, and on a recent Sunday morning the faith healing team was at St. Ignatius High School where there was standing room only. The hands-on healing service frequently runs nine hours. Even though it was not...

    My Mom is 84 and was just admitted to the hospital on Wednesday with congestive heart failure. They did an echocardiogram and she shows damage to at least one and maybe two valves. Diagnosis would require more and rather intrusive testing which would have its own side effects and would likely require analgesia and anesthesia. Medically, however, they have gone about as far as they can go to assist the heart in its work. If she is to improve, she would need surgery on the valves, which would also have significant side effects.

We're all in this together. All deeply connected. And when we can start bridging that divide -- the primitive, ignorant divide of that -- then wars go away. All wars go away."

He came to heal the broken hearted. In that eighteenth verse of the fourth chapter of Luke, which I read to you last night, He said that the Spirit...

I practiced surgery for thirty-nine years, so perhaps I performed 50,000 operations. I was successful, and patients were coming to me from all over the world. And one of the things that endeared me to the parents of my patients was the way my incisions healed. No one likes big scars, but they are especially upsetting to mothers when they appear on their children. So I set out early on to make my...

Many of the apparently healed have justified the need for the mega event despite the multitude of problems. But the jury is still out on whether Hinn is a fraud or someone with connections to the Lord. Questions on people's minds regarding Hinn's healing methods and utterances indicate that all may not have been above board. Sample these: Why were only those cured allowed on stage?

The essence of his point was that Christ's message was to forgive, but we have lost that lately, this has infected us most notably politically. Within America families are divided about politics, behaviors that would have been shunned even five years ago are ordinary, social order is threatened.

    If my life does not match up with what God's Word says about my life, the problem is not God's Word. The problem is me. For generations now the church has been systematically molding and shaping scripture to fit the experiences of man. We no longer look to God's Word as our absolute source of truth, but rather we look to our life experiences and put our faith in these, and then make God's Word fit these experiences. Let me give you an example. All through scripture we read of God as a healer of the physically infirmed. He is...

    Does prayer really help heal? Medical researchers investigated the role played by prayer in both physical and emotional healing. The results? Prayer can help—but only if you believe it can. Researcher Randall Fitzgerald writes in Phenomena Magazine that prayer studies in the past have produced mixed results. In this new study from the University of Texas Health Science Center, 86 male and female patients were assigned to either be prayed for or to non-prayer control groups. Two-thirds of them were church members, and each one filled out a questionnaire about how much they believed prayer could heal. Eight volunteers from...

I'm not sure when I updated you last, so if some of is a repeat, just skip over. Norman had another dream in the Nursing Home. In his sleep, he heard a loud voice say: Rise and be healed in the name of Jesus. It was so startling, it woke him from a sound sleep. He started breathing better. He went from 16 liters of oxygen to 14, the next day...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- One sad voice says ''I'm sorry I was ever born.'' Another says he's sorry for turning his back on true love. Another confesses to an affair. These are the callers to the apology hot line, a college student's effort to offer solace to troubled souls. Critics worry the line might help people avoid the face-to-face closure needed for true healing. ''You might get something off your chest, but how really honest is that to the person you're trying to apologize to?'' asked Kevin Irwin, a Catholic University of America theology professor. The hot line's creator, 20-year-old...

    Update on Hubby..Guess what?! I'm bringing him home!!! I went over to the nursing home today to take Norman his noontime power drink and had some very good news awaiting me! I can bring Norman home on Friday! I can't believe it! His breathing has improved so much, he's gone from 16 liters of oxygen and today is down to 2! 2! Unbelievable! His doctor said that his latest xray revealed even more improvement. When asked what that meant, he said he'd rather not comment until Norman has another CATScan! I'm beginning to wonder if not only have his lungs...

    I was out at an event the other night and I heard an interesting story. It comes from Acts. At one point, Peter and John (whose names stand for faith and love) were going to the Temple. There was a man in the community who had been lame from birth. Keep that in mind -- he was lame from birth. Now, every day this man was carried to the Temple and was laid outside the gate to beg for money while his family went inside to worship. Well, here come Peter and John, and the man asked them for money....

    Researchers at Johns Hopkins University, Maryland have created a new class of artificial proteins that can assemble themselves into a gel and encourage the growth of selected cell types. This biomaterial, which can be tailored to send different biological signals to cells, is expected to help scientists who are developing new ways to repair injured or diseased body parts. "We're trying to give an important new tool to tissue engineers to help them do their work more quickly and efficiently," said James L. Harden, whose lab team developed the new biomaterial. "We're the first to produce a self-assembling protein...

    <p>"Life in the Word does not mean life in the streets."</p> <p>These words were plastered on signs carried by homeless women outside the Edward Jones Dome in late October. Inside, TV evangelist Joyce Meyer held her International Women's Convention.</p> <p>Perhaps the homeless need to pick their venues more carefully. More than 15,000 women were expected to attend the three-day event. They spent big bucks, dressed up in fancy duds, and came downtown for an evening of spiritual uplift. Being confronted by the homeless must be a bit of a downer. The Rev. Larry Rice said he heard that Meyer's security officers had hustled the homeless women out of the area.</p>

    Religious Science (Science of Mind) | 1959 | Dr. Ernest Holmes
    In his final "Sermon By the Sea" given in 1959 at Asilomar, California, Ernest Holmes shared with us his vision of the outcome of global well-being, the human species and Earth transformed by the consciousness that he had articulated as Science of Mind. His Sermon is a prescription for planetary resurrection, a prophetic, millennial assertion of the role of Religious Science in bringing about the world's rebirth: [Science of Mind] is the most direct impartation of Divine Wisdom that has ever come to the world, because it incorporates the precepts of Jesus, and Emerson, and Buddha, and all the rest...

    The day may be coming when you will call your doctor in the middle of the night with an ailment and he will tell you, ''Say two prayers and call me in the morning.'' Doctors who believe in the power of prayer are increasing. The cover story in a recent issue of Newsweek magazine carried the headline ''God and Health: Is Religion Good Medicine? Why Science is Starting to Believe.'' In the Nov. 10 article, Newsweek's Claudia Kalb wrote that many of today's doctors are beginning to ''embrace the God they banished from the clinic long ago in favor of...
