Prayers are powerful. We know this. Studies have actually proven that prayer makes a difference in people’s health and well-being. I like to refer to the book Prayer is Good Medicine: How to Reap the Healing Benefits of Prayer by Larry Dossey, which documents how prayer has been steadily gaining interest in the traditional medical establishment.
Dossey, who is a physician, takes a look at promising data, as well as the skeptics, delving into questions as why doesn't prayer always work – and if prayer simply creates a "false hope." He has gone on to write several other books to muse and document the science and controversy of premonitions and the shadow side of prayer.
