    What about cancer there is chemo but it does not heal cancer . No meds for diabetes . AIDs/HIV ?
  • Baggins... Running... 2009/10/15 22:37:53
    Baggins ~IMBIT~
    ...WTF? Chemo kills cancer. Insulin for diabetes. Research is being done on HIV/AIDS at the moment - in fact, they've found a significant number of people who are immune to it. What planet have you been living on? And since when has praying 'healed' any of these?

    A girl died because of that somewhat recently. Yay, prayer.

    Yes I do but I don't believe it is restricted to any one religion or even attached to a deity...I also believe faith healing fails much more frequently than it succeeds and only a very brainwashed person would rely on it exclusively.

    Of Course

    I've been healed through prayer, laying on of hands, and medication. All three were used in the Bible.

    When I see an amputee grow back a leg or arm, then I might believe. A lizard can grow back a tail, but nobody prays that an arm will miraculously grow back. ???

    Yes I do believe in the miracle of healing through prayer. It happens everyday.
    miracle healing prayer
  • Lavendergrl 2009/10/08 00:45:27
    But I don't believe the answer to the request for healing is always yes. The faithful need to use what medical care and treatment is available. Miracles sometimes come in the form of science.
  • seathan... Lavende... 2009/10/08 18:14:35
    So, in other words, "shit happens - or not"?
  • Lavende... seathan... 2009/10/08 18:33:51
    In other words, there's no reason to not be proactive even if you believe in God. And sometimes, even when you pray and you're proactive, yeah, shit happens.
  • Baggins... Lavende... 2009/10/13 13:31:17
    Baggins ~IMBIT~
    so what's the point in praying? if it all boils down to 'shit happens' then ther is no point in praying for healing, because, odds are, you'll heal or not exactly to statistically measured estimations.
  • Lavende... Baggins... 2009/10/13 16:27:59
    The point would be that occassionally divine intervention happens as well.
  • Baggins... Lavende... 2009/10/13 17:38:27
    Baggins ~IMBIT~
    Unfortunately, there's no proof of any such thing.
  • Lavende... Baggins... 2009/10/13 18:37:08
    True. But there are plenty of instances where medically people weren't supposed to pull through, but following prayer they did. Or instances where conditions took a sudden change for the better or even disappeared following prayer. Whether you want to call divine intervention or not is your choice. Personally, I choose to have faith in the divine in these cases.
  • Baggins... Lavende... 2009/10/13 19:20:45
    Baggins ~IMBIT~
    In such cases, I find I feel astonishment and awe at the way in which the human body copes, and see nothing divine about it. There are actually doccumented cases where patients have felt WORSE when being prayed for and many such trials where prayer has done absolutely nothing. I have yet to find any evidence of an ill person healing through prayer - in all cases ever mentioned, either the person was not as ill as feared, or medical professionals cured them and were overlooked in favor of the 'my family was praying for me' explanation, or the person is the one in a (large number) who does pull through.

  • Lavende... Baggins... 2009/10/13 21:21:15
    I too know of cases where prayer has been employed and an ill person deteriorated. I don't believe that prayer is a guaranteed fix it. But my choice to recognize its efficacy in my own life is not limited by those times that the answer to prayers is "not this time". The God I choose to believe in doesn't always say yes. And from personal experience, those prayers that were most effective and most growth promoting were those answered with a "no". Does it seem fair? Not always. But I've definitely become a stronger and more empathetic person because of it.

    That doesn't mean I don't want people praying for me.

    I believe in Santa the Easter Bunny the Tooth Fairy and Jesus.Oh and Bigfoot.
  • Jo 2009/10/07 22:39:46
    I have witnessed it in my life, so yes I do
  • linny 2009/10/07 22:25:14
    Yes and you know that and you know that I would say
  • Connie 2009/10/07 22:18:08
    Yes. I believe in the collective energy of the soul, that we can have a say so in the outcome, to a degree. I've seen it at work. However, I also believe that if God chooses that it's time for a person to go, then they will go.
  • Cass 2009/10/07 21:28:47
    .. I believe in God's miracles!!!
  • Bastion 2009/10/07 20:25:26
    I think that if praying to be healed DID work, it would suggest a "god" who is an awful deity. Only using his "power" to make you well if you beg? Why is that a good thing?
  • Karen Bellaart 2009/10/07 19:46:56

    I wouldn't believe it if it hadn't happened to me. Hell, I'm not even a right-wing nut job.
