Next time you send a get-well card, don’t forget to pray after you mail it. Dr. Dale Matthews, a medical doctor, is author of The Faith Factor: Proof of the Healing Power of Prayer. He says that the partnership of prayer and medicine can be profoundly effective in the treatment of both mind and body.
Dr. Matthews did a dozen “prayer studies” drawing on case studies of his own patients, and says that prayer and medicine together can have a dramatic impact on healing arthritis, alcoholism, drug abuse, and even AIDS.
So, when you send a get-well card to someone, be sure to pray for the person receiving it! Your prayers are powerful!
