The healing of scars

Can prayer heal the effects of an unhappy or harmful incident in the past?

When I was a young teenager, I tore my hand on a barbed-wire fence. I had been walking through a pasture when a bull charged at me, chasing me over the fence. The resulting cut left a scar that actually looked like a piece of barbed wire imprinted on the back of my hand. People who noticed it would often ask me where it came from, and I would tell the exciting story.

As the years went on, the scar remained, dimmed only slightly from its original state. Every once in a while, someone would inquire about it and I would, again, explain how I got it so long ago. Because it caused me no pain, I saw no reason to heal it.
