Have you ever prayed for someone to get better who was seriously ill? Keep it up, because it works! Not only have numerous studies corroborated the fact that prayer heals, but the top five medical schools in the country now require courses on spirituality and healing in their curriculum. Dossey has long been at the forefront of elucidating prayer's power to heal and suggests we all take a long hard look at why we pray, how we pray and why some of our prayers bring results we don't expect. "The fire behind prayer is love and compassion," so if we know someone who's uncomfortable being prayed for, Dossey says, "just tell them you're going to love them instead--it amounts to pretty much the same thing." (hosted by Michael Toms)
