RADIO PROGRAM NO. 346 - Why Prayer Heals, Part II

[The speaker is Harvey Wood, who is active in the healing ministry of Christian Science. The questioner is Robert McKinnon.]

Questioner: In our last discussion you said that healing of serious physical conditions through prayer is not a supernatural act and that there is a rationale behind it.

Speaker: Yes, but this doesn't mean that there is some mental formula for prayer. Actually people are helped by prayer on many different levels of understanding. But the rationale or underlying reason behind the prayer that heals goes beyond the realm of blind faith. What we're referring to here is the real depth of prayer, prayer that brings thought into line with the true facts of what God is and what man is as indicated in the Bible.
