Does prayer have the power to heal?

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

Well isn't that convenient? Prayer only works if the situation would have been healed without prayer.


or not or not as fast,Prayer doesn't heal ,your body does ,prayer only helps.it relieves stress and allows you to calm.its hard to heal if your wound up and stressed out.
i don't believe it brings the power of divine intervention,unless others pray with you or for you,then you are being influenced by external forces,the combined spiritual will of others .now that's when it gets heavy.
Peace be with you.

I was with you up to that last part. How many others praying would it take to spontaneously grow a lost limb?
You cannot reason someone out of a position that they did not use reason to arrive at.

Ya this is something that i am trying to grasp myself,I do believe I am a spiritual being and everyone else to.My feelings are that if spiritual wills are combined they are more powerful I've seen where all hope was lost but where group prayer was involved Miracles happen.Hoax, Maybe? Some things you don't have the strength to do alone.
Ask me when I am dead Ill know for sure.
Peace be with you.
