Prayer can heal you. It's not just hype or hope or a spiritual cliche. Recent medical and psychological studies claim that prayer can relieve stress, improve attitudes, and mend bodies. Prayer generates peace, power, and health--a triple preventative that guards against anxiety and disease. It's a simple act that heals. According to Chet Tolson and Harold Koenig, prayer helps people function at their best when life serves them the worst. Even on good days, it enhances the mind-body-soul connection. Now available in trade paperback, "The Healing Power of Prayer" explains the nature of prayer, what happens when we pray, the restorative benefits of prayer, how to organize prayer, and much more. The authors' facts and insights will encourage believers to increase, the fainthearted to revive, and skeptics to begin a life of prayer.
