(Almost) everything you wanted to know about healing prayer, but were afraid to ask!

“Light rays” by Tony Lobl

My latest blog, published by OnFaith, addresses questions people might have about prayer that heals. It’s called: 10 Things I Wish Everyone Knew About Healing Prayer

Here are the ten points the blog addresses:

1. God doesn’t “hear” our prayers, because we don’t need Him to.

2. Prayer frees us from the limitations of materialism.

3. The restoration of harmony to mind and body evidences our spiritual nature.

4. Prayer-based healing is not positive thinking.

5. Just because prayer can be a placebo, doesn’t mean it always is.

6. To be effective, prayer needs to be more than a mind-body effect.

7. None of this means we are to blame for our illnesses.

8. Healing the body is just a part of healing prayer.

9. The Word of God can heal, but the best words won’t heal by themselves.

10. No one has a monopoly on healing prayer.
