Signs of the Times

Dr. Charles E. Wagner, President of the Delaware Medical Society in The Sunday Star Magazine Wilmington, Delaware

In my thirty-three years of medical practice I have found that the spiritual life of a patient or his relatives or friends often influences the results obtained in his treatment. I can recall many instances where I have given sulfonamides or antibiotics and prescribed the usual methods of treatment without any apparent benefit. When I have indicated my deep concern to relatives, I have gone back the next morning to find the temperature normal and the patient markedly improved. Relatives then informed me that all of them prayed for his recovery, which I could attribute only to the power of prayer and not to mere coincidence of treatment or to my own skill.
