I could have told you that when I saw my grandmother come back from the dead three times from my mother's fervent prayers at the chapel next door at St. Francis hospital. She went on to live another 20 years afterwards. Now we are getting studies which is awesome. It will make prayer that much more effective. Life is a feedback loop, once you understand that and work with the manifestations that the consciousness acceleration can begin in earnest. Of course you could go on the ascensionenergy machines and watch how people seem to shrink. What was so difficult before becomes surprisingly easy and it kind of sneeks up on you.
Prayer heals when it's close-up and personal, and there's a study to prove it.
It's not just any kind of prayer, but "proximal intercessory prayer," or PIP — when one or more people pray for someone in that person's presence and often with physical contact — that was found by a team of doctors, scientists, and religious experts to have remarkable results in healing some patients.
A team of medical doctors and scientists led by Indiana University professor of religion Candy Gunther Brown found in the study, conducted in rural Mozambique, that prayer brought "highly significant" improvements to hearing-impaired participants and significant changes to the visually impaired.
Fourteen hard-of-hearing and 11 visually impaired study participants were recruited at meetings of pentecostal Christian groups in three Mozambican villages and one town.
They were tested with a handheld audiometer or vision charts, depending on their impairment, both before and after they took part in a prayer session.
"There was a highly significant improvement in hearing across 18 ears of 11 subjects" and "significant visual improvements," says the study, which will be published next month in the peer-reviewed Southern Medical Journal.
Two of the hard-of-hearing study participants were able to hear sounds at 50 decibels lower after the prayer session and three of the visually impaired subjects saw their vision improve from 20/400 or worse to 20/80 or better.
The study focused on the clinical effects of prayer and did not attempt to explain how or why some participants saw such remarkable improvements.
