O Mother of Perpetual Help,

grant that I may ever invoke thy most powerful name,

which is the safeguard of the living

and the salvation of the dying.

I'm not surprised research shows an impact on people who are praying. But the studies also show an impact on people who are prayed for.

 

Prayers not only draw us into a conversation with the Eternal Power but Prayer also is internalized, and lets us become better people.

Professor Leslie Francis of the University of Bangor has studied 31 experiments (conducted to the "highest professional standards") into the effectiveness of prayer.

The trials would typically take a group of hundreds of patients recovering from heart surgery, randomly divided into two groups, one of which is prayed for. None of the patients would know they were or weren't being prayed for.

"The findings are quite staggering," he says. "Studies show that patients in hospital who are being prayed for (even when they do not know they are being prayed for) are more likely to recover."

 

The inner effect on praying people has a bearing on prayers for world peace such as those said round the world everyday, says Dr Laws.

 

"For me it's not a matter of persuading God to do something, but of people praying for peace looking to become peaceful people. It starts with the internal effect and that, hopefully, will have an impact on the outside world."
