RADIO PROGRAM NO. 252 - Prayer and the Spiritual Healing Movement, Part I
Questioner: There's a surprising amount of interest currently in books on religious experiences. I suppose this may indicate a willingness to reexamine just what prayer can mean in today's world. But still, wouldn't you say that many people are inclined to feel that a serious interest in prayer as a means of coping with actual life situations is either naïve or completely out of touch with modern developments?
Speaker: Many people must feel that way, but perhaps that may be partly due to an inadequate concept of prayer. If you look on prayer as a sort of emotional safety valve, then that would be the case. Or, if you look on it simply as asking God to intervene in some special way in human affairs, to set aside His ordinary laws and work a miracle, as it were, then one might well feel that way, because our age simply doesn't believe in miracles in that sense.
Questioner: In what sense would you say we believe in miracles?
