Positive Thought and Prayer by Bruce Brightman - LifeSource
Prayer and other practices of spirituality for health and the treatment
of disease have been used for thousands of years. Many cultures, dating
back to the beginning of recorded history, have used some form of
spirituality as a healing therapy.
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the
National Institutes of Health defines prayer as "an active process of
appealing to a higher spiritual power" that includes "individual or
group prayer on behalf of oneself or others." The definition for
spirituality encompasses prayer but also includes the individual's
sense of purpose and meaning beyond material values.
In a recent national survey, 45 percent used prayer for health reasons.
Forty-three percent prayed for their own health and 25 percent asked
others to pray for them. Ten percent participated in prayer groups for
Medical science is about asking questions and trying to find answers.
The question "do prayer and spirituality work" has been asked and the
answers are very interesting.
In a number of earlier studies, both prayer and simply thinking good
thoughts about someone resulted in more rapid healing. More recent
research has shown that people who pray or have a strong spiritual
sense live longer and are, overall, healthier. Does this imply a higher
power favors those who pray or have a strong sense of spirituality?
Science cannot answer that question. What it can say is that people who
are spiritual seem to handle stress better and unrelieved stress is the
major contributor to all disease.
There are a number of research projects under way looking at the health
benefits of spirituality. These projects include comparing spiritual
practices and health in HIV/AIDS patients and exploring the link
between spirituality and the immune system function.
Years ago, medical science separated the mind, body and spirit,
focusing on treating only the body. Now we are discovering that the
body, mind and spirit are one. Activities that seem to benefit the mind
and spirit might translate into better health and longevity overall.
The above being said, I say: PRAY, PRAY, PRAY! Pray for you, pray for
others, Just Pray!
