LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A new study suggests that prayer is an effective healing device. Sounds so clinical, doesn't it? The study suggests prayer can make a difference in patient recovery when the patient is physically close to the person who is praying.
The study at Indiana University looked at a small group of people in Africa who had trouble seeing or hearing. Researchers found that when healing prayers were said aloud and the person was physically close enough to touch the patient, they consistently saw improvements in their condition. The scientists in the study say they can't explain why this works.
