Publisher's Summary

Common sense tells us that we are beings made up of physical matter, that we have no special powers other than those granted by the laws of nature. However, one of the most important recent discoveries in science tell us we are capable of changing our physical world across dimensions of time and space simply by using our minds.
This is a program about accessing this incredible power by reaching within yourself. About accessing it in a way that mankind has used since the beginning of time. Accessing it in a way you may already be very familiar and comfortable with. Through prayer. The Power of Prayer is a personal journey exploring the link between science and spirituality. Recounted by a medical doctor, Larry Dossey M.D., he leads you through the same realizations that have profoundly changed his own life, and his understanding of the natural world, and what our role as humans is in it.
Through an examination of the scientific experiments, anecdotal third-person accounts, and stories about his own experiences in the practice of medicine, Dr. Dossey will bring you to new assumptions about yourself and the spiritual nature within you. You'll discover:

How to find an approach to prayer that is meaningful for you
Specific factors which influence your prayer's effectiveness
The important difference between curing and healing
New ways to get into a state of prayerfulness and how to express yourself with prayer
A new understanding of the illness or imperfections in yourself and others
The power of love and empathy and how it can transcend space and time
Five universal prayer techniques used by mystics
The power of "letting go" and how to develop an "attitude of gratitude"
How to make prayer a part of your daily rituals of life
The extraordinary body of medical evidence on the power of prayer

Deeply Moving & Convincing

The presentation of the empirical evidence of prayer was amazing. this book is at least over 20 years old and the fact that more of the science around prayer and consciousness is still only just becoming more mainstream is boggling. For those who may be atheist or agnostic, a read through this book will give some real hard evidence to consider regarding the power of prayer regardless of any conception of 'god'. It defines prayer as "communication with the divine" leaving the definition of communication and divine up to the reader. It also shows that prayer has measurable and statistically significant effects in the laboratory, whether being tested on human subjects that may be healed, micro-organisms in a petri dish which can be protected from the effects of anti-biotics, or the numbers produced by a random number generator which can be swayed by using the power of intent and prayer. One of the most beautiful things that comes out of all of this scientific review, is that love and compassion are the key ingredients in any form of prayer.
