Prayer, faith and health: Part 1

To summarize briefly: James 5:13-18 strongly supports the role for prayer and communities of faith in healing and health.  CS Lewis gives a powerful apologetic for the possibility of the miraculous as part of nature (Miracles 1947, http://www.amazon.com/Miracles-C-S-Lewis/dp/0060653019/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1292474000&sr=1-1#) .  The Heritage foundation gives an excellent summary on the secular approach to this question http://www.heritage.org/research/lecture/is-prayer-good-for-your-health-a-critique-of-the-scientific-research.  Over the next few blogs we will explore these 3 resources in detail.
