: According to the article here..a group of patients that received prayers unknowningly has a total of 11% higher chance of recovering then those who were not prayed for....Comments any1?

***Have there been any studies of those who know the are being prayed for? What about those who are being prayed for that no one knows about? How about a study of those who believe god will heal them without medical science? How about a study of those who reject prayers but believe that medical science can cure them because the cure is known? How about those who have a very good system of social support vs those who have no one in thier lives to care/visit them...

***To me, prayer automatically means that most of the people studied have a very good social support system, which I believe plays a big part in self healing processes, especially when combinded with medical expertise.
