Prayer Can Heal

Prayer: In the Eyes of Religions

Praying can heal you and others. Yes, it works! Not only religions prove it but also science proves it.

In The Quran Allah says -  "And We send down  from the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe… (Quran, Surah Al-Israa, 17:82)"

In The Bible - Psalm 107:19-21 - " Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.  He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind."

If you are a believer in Allah/God/Jesus it's the way to Jannah/ Heaven/ Paradise. So when you are in distress, pray. He will replay and make you well and healthy.

If you don't believe in the God, then science can prove the efficacy of prayer.
  • A few years ago Mitchell Krucoff MD was handling a complex heart operation. It was a very risky procedure and the risks are involved heart attack, stroke and the worse one death. The patient Roy didn't know he was getting worldwide prayers from different peoples from different religions. The procedure was successful and he made out of it. Later Roy was informed that he was a part of a pilot study of "distant prayer." (Source: Webmd)
