The blessings of prayer

Philip Yancey in his book, Prayer: Does it make any difference? says prayer can “help a person cope with stress and have a greater sense of well-being, more hope, and a readiness to forgive – all of which affect health in positive ways. And machines that monitor brain waves, breathing, heart rate, and blood chemistry record dramatic changes when a person prayers… People who take quiet times during the day and force themselves to relax learn to control stress in a way that fosters health. A sense of gratitude calms the heart. (On the contrary, fear, loneliness, hostility, worry, grief, and helplessness are enemies of recovery.)”
