NEW YORK (AP)—In the largest study of its kind, researchers found that having people pray for heart bypass surgery patients had no effect on their recovery. In fact, patients who knew they were being prayed for had a slightly higher rate of complications.
I can hear the conversations taking place in hospital rooms all over the country:
Wife: “Don’t worry sweetheart, I’ll pray for you.”
Husband: “Jesus Christ on a pogo stick! Are you trying to kill me?!”
How’d you like the way I mangled the headline for this entry? Pretty nasty, eh?
