In his bestselling Healing Words, Dossey provided abundant evidence that praying - for oneself or others - makes a scientifically measurable difference in recovering from illness or trauma. Now, in Prayer Is Good Medicine, the doctor shows us how we can make the most of our own healing prayers.
In a series of short, inspiring chapters, he addresses common questions and concerns about harnessing the healing potential of prayer, including whether to pray with or without words, when and how much to pray, the role of religion in our health, how the medical establishment feels about prayer, and even how to avoid the destructive side of prayer. Dossey emphasizes that praying is not a replacement for good medical treatment, but instead is a very effective addition to it - it just makes good sense to use both.
In Prayer Is Good Medicine, you will learn that prayer works, even across great distance; seeking general guidance through prayer can be more valuable than asking for something specific; adopting a compassionate, sincere, and loving attitude will allow your prayers to be truly beneficial; prayers are always answered - though the answer may not be "yes"; and hope heals.
Interspersed throughout Dossey's warm and wise reflections are references to studies proving the link between prayer and health, direct retorts to the skepticism that surrounds prayer, and uplifting stories from people - doctors, patients, relatives, and friends - who share their personal experiences with prayer's healing power. No matter what form your faith takes, you'll come away from Prayer Is Good Medicine with a new appreciation of how prayer can bring about healthful change and the tools to make that happen.
