I think prayer only helps the person who is doing the praying. Makes them feel like they're doing SOMETHING. Also, if they are praying for their OWN illness, there is also the placebo effect, which is real and measurable. I wonder why the placebo effect did not kick in for the people who knew they were being prayed for? Maybe the added stress cancelled it out??
