Here's another study on the power of prayer. In this one there were 1,000 hospitalized heart patients divided into two groups. Half were given to one of 15 teams composed of 5 practicing Christians in each team. They prayed for the patients' names they were given. Four weeks later, the group that had been prayer for had an 11% reduction in medical complications and in the need for medications or surgery during this four-week period. So if you have medical difficulties make sure to get at least 5 people on your side.
