The Health Benefits of Prayer

Wanna' stay healthy longer? Studies show that a robust prayer life can lengthen life and mitigate illness.

By Clem Boyd
Wanna' stay healthy longer? Studies show a robust prayer life can lengthen life and mitigate illnesses.
Methuselah lived to be nearly 1,000-years-old? Maybe he had a good prayer life.
A recent study from the Duke University Medical Center, involving 4,000 older adults, indicates. that even occasional, private prayer and Bible study helped people live healthier and longer lives.
"This is one of the first studies showing that people who pray live longer," said researcher Harold Koenig.
Dr. David Stevens, a family practitioner and executive director of the Christian Medical Association, said Christians shouldn't be surprised.
"People who are anxious, worried and depressed do poorly when they're sick," Stevens said. "Those with hope and peace in the midst of a [health] struggle seem to do much better. People with religious commitments have that hope and peace."
Dr. Bob Orr, director of clinical ethics at the University of Vermont’s Fletcher Allen Health Care, says prayer brings a definite physiological benefit.
"I certainly encourage people who are believers to pray," Orr said. "My observation is the person who prays is less stressed. He becomes less anxious and his blood pressure and pulse improve."
Stevens pointed to one study which showed the risk of diastolic hypertension was 40 percent lower among those who studied the Bible daily and attended church weekly. Another study concluded that elderly heart patients were 14 times less likely to die after surgery if they found comfort in religious faith.
"This has an impact on longevity," Stevens said. "The overall life expectancy gap is seven years between those who go to church once a week versus those who don't attend at all. We will live longer if we have a strong faith."
Clem Boyd is a freelance writer and part-time minister in Dayton, Ohio.

.Dear Peggy Jo,

I like that idea, Peggy Jo.  "Winter Lights".  let’s rename them Winter Lights and worry about removing them when the days get longer and the sun is brighter and the depression has lifted.

Sharon.

 


Dear Peggy Jo,

If we leave the lights up we will soon tire of them and they will not be special.

R.L.

Dear R. L.

We will tire of the dingy gloom long before we tire of the twinkling lights and I have never heard anyone say they tire of the beutiful floweres during their season.

Peggy Jo.

FirstStep is a shelter which houses and assists the victims of domestic violence. These families often flee their homes with only the clothes on their backs. FirstStep gives them a safe place in which to recover, along with counseling services for the entire family. This is a valuable service which relies, in great part, upon donations from people like us. This dance has helped provide these services over the years, but the need has not diminished

If you would like to attend, please let me know ASAP so that we can reserve tables right up front near the band. $40 per person. I'll need to collect the money in advance and send it to them to reserve the seats. I'll have order forms at the monthly dances or you can send checks to me at:
