RADIO PROGRAM No. 123 - How Can Prayer Heal the Body?

INTERVIEWER: The connection between prayer and physical healing puzzles many people. In his book, "Primer for the Perplexed." the author. Alson J. Smith, raises some questions frequently asked about prayer. He giants that prayer has a spiritual effect on the one who prays, but he asks, "Can it change things physically?" (© 1962, by Alson J. Smith, The John Day Company, New York, N. Y.) How would you answer that question?

SPEAKER: Prayer does change physical conditions, and it changes them by correcting the mental attitudes which lead to such conditions. This correction of thought demands spiritual power, the power of God, divine Truth. The individual needs to spiritualize his thinking and let the power of divine Truth replace his wrong mental attitude.
