PRAYER & MEDITATION
Some think meditation and prayer are separate entities but I believe you need one in order to do the other. Sometimes when we pray, we quickly tell God what we want, but fail to listen to him because our minds are racing out of control. But I would venture to say if we quiet our minds by meditating on God’s blessings, we can hear Him. Our mind is clear to focus on Him.

EVIDENCE
Faith and Healing

These studies look at how a patient’s faith might actually help in the healing process. It’s more than just going to a place like Lourdes to become healed. How someone feels about a higher power, and how he or she communes with that higher power, might affect the outcome of an illness or surgery.
God’s headquarters: Dr. Michael Persinger has done studies on what happens to the brain when people are in the attitude of prayer and faith, and he links to the ways that personal faith can help the way someone feels, and how they interact with God.
Cancer patients: The Southern Medical Journal featured a study from Andrew Weaver and Kevin Flannerly describing how the spirituality of cancer patients determined quality of life during care. Those with faith had a better quality of life than those with out it.
Quality of life: Another study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, shows that patients with cancer can experience better quality of life when their spiritual needs are supported by a medical team.
Helping patients with faith: “Physicians and Patient Spirituality: Professional Boundaries, Competency, and Ethics,” from the Annals of Internal Medicine, looks at how faith and spirituality can help with coping during times of illness and injury.
Depression and faith: Rush University Medical Center published a study in the Journal of Clinical Psychology looking at how faith can actually help protect patients against the symptoms of depression.
Faith to fight depression: At MIT, a psychoanalyst gave a talk about using faith to fight depression.
Intercessory Prayer and Healing
A number of studies have been done that seem to show that intercessory prayer can work to help patients overcome illness. These studies look at what happens when others pray for those who are ailing in some manner.
Prayer helps heart patients: A Duke University study showed that cardiac patients receiving intercessory prayer in addition to stenting appeared to recover better than those who received coronary stenting alone.
Social work and intercessory prayer: At Arizona State University, a review of different studies of intercessory prayer among social workers showed that small positive effects could be produced with the practice.
Scientists and intercessory prayer: Brandeis University offered an analysis of decades of research on intercessory prayer and presented, in the Journal of Religion, a study that shows that studies about the practice say more about scientists than whether prayer “works.”
Intercessory prayer and belief: This interesting study from The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine looked at how the belief in intercessory prayer affected patients, and found that even though patients didn’t know they were being prayed for, those with belief in prayer saw different results than those with less belief.
Intercessory prayer coronary care: Dr. William Harris and his colleagues performed a study in a coronary care unit, and found that those who had been prayed for did better than those who had not been prayed for.
Hernia patients and prayer: A study was done that appeared to show that intercessory prayers helped produce better outcomes in some variable related to hernia operation recovery than taped messages of suggestions of accelerated recovery.
AIDS and intercessory prayer: Dr. Elisabeth Targ, daughter of a physicist who had studied ESP, published a study alleging that HIV/AIDS patients had better outcomes when prayed for.
Faith, Prayer and Long Life
Does following a faith tradition help lengthen your life and improve your health? Some studies seem to show that if you believe with, and attempt to commune with, a higher power, you might enjoy better health and longer life.
Every day life: The University of Toronto conducted a study about how people believe God influences them — and their health and other decisions — in every day life.
Prayer and relationships: There are studies that link long life and good health to good relationships. A recent study from Florida State University suggests that praying for someone else can better those relationships.
Meditation and health: Stress relief and meditation can aid in your health, and suggests a study from George Mason University, published in Psychological Science, it can also enhance some of your mental abilities.
Controlling diabetes with mindfulness: Mindfulness meditation, based on Vipassana Buddhism was shown to help some improve their health, including helping diabetics control their own blood sugar.
Senior health and religious involvement: High levels of religious involvement among the elderly were associated with lower levels of depression and disability.
Blood pressure and prayer: A study at Duke University found that those who pray regularly and attend religious services often have lower blood pressure than those who don’t.

POWER OF PRAYER



“The Healing Code” 
by A.Loyd with B. Johnson
http://thehealingcodes.com/book/



This book is very unique and very powerful. Not only have we and countless others found this to work miraculously in our lives, but it also stresses a strong and simple point. 

There is power in prayer and meditation. 

The ability to release and focus opens doors and releases healing. Think we’re crazy? Try it for yourself. 

Keesha had even taught our son to do it. I will never forget one time when we had to get him tested for this scary (to us anyway) electrode thing. The doctor told him to try to go to sleep. As he nodded off he was doing the “Healing Code” with his hands. 

We quietly wept at the sight of our beautiful boy believing faithfully without a prompt for us. I still get choked up typing this. 

By the way, he now is vibrant and healthy .... and doesn’t take naps like most children. Energy doesn’t seem to be a strong enough word!

Let us know what you think.
-BRAD

The Healing Codes is one of the most amazing yet simple way of healing I’ve ever experienced. It was created by Dr. Alex Loyd but as he would probably testify really by God. This book is a must read!!! And more importantly a must do!!! Praise God is works. It allows your body to do what God has designed it to do.....HEAL ITSELF..Amen:)
