Science Finally Proves It:

Prayer Changes Your Brain

in 4 Astonishing Ways . . .

Millions of Americans believe prayer works. . . Yet the mainstream media tends to avoid the subject altogether.

But our Mind Health Report team at Newsmax Health wanted answers to questions like these:

  1. Can modern science explain prayer?
  2. Does praying strengthen your brain and prevent mental decline?
  3. What benefits, if any, does prayer offer you — physically, mentally, and emotionally?

To this end, the team went out to the scientific and medical community to learn the potential benefits of prayer — and what they found both surprised and excited all of us here at The Mind Health Report.

The results were so startling, in fact, we created a FREE video presentation to share with you exactly what we discovered.

When you watch this FREE video, you’ll discover how prayer actually changes four distinct areas of your brain. In fact, you’ll see exactly how prayer or other spiritual practices increase activity in the areas of your brain that are most helpful to you, and diminish activity in areas that are less helpful — or even harmful.

You’ll also see:

  • How a specific amount of “prayer time” per day can help prevent memory loss, mental decline, and even dementia or Alzheimer’s . . .
  • The #1 prayer pitfall that can actually make you sick if you’re not careful (this is one of the most important bits of wisdom you’ll ever gain) . . .
  • 47 scientifically proven benefits of prayer, including pain relief, reduced risk of death from heart attack or stroke, lessened anxiety or depression, and more . . .
  • And much, much more . . .

So Take a Few Minutes to See This FREE Video

Laura--Agreed! Wishing fervently, which I consider the same as prayer, also does the same thing, but few study that. As always, religious research always comes after determining the answer beforehand.

I know from experience that meditation can have profound effects, and research shows beneficial effects.  It isn't necessary to include a God idea in the meditation.

If people pray in a way that's similar to meditation, they would have those same effects.

85%!!!!! Actually, I'm not surprised. Even NPR picked up the story. Personally, I believe those seeking prove these things is little more than "self fulfilling prophecy." They want so badly to say to the world, "Aha, I told you so." Interestingly enough,research on meditation show many of the same attributes, as does focusing one's thoughts, as does many Eastern philosophies and even vodou (voodoo) The same thing happens when your brain is on music. By the a book of the name is quite interesting. At best, this old news hiding under the cloak of NEW information. To me, it is much like young earth theory, creation science and intelligent design--bogus.

Had a look at some Christian discussions on that show and many dislike it as well as don't trust it, they see it as Atheism pretending to support theism. Sort of sideways, possibly loaded mediation by atheists with theists.

So it hits raw nerves in both camps.

Yes Donald,

I think it was about 15% at last survey I read who would see the slideshow as drivel and 85% who would likely believe it.

It's sad, but the percentage of rational, skeptical thinkers in western society is not great.

Education is the only answer.

But, the question is how do we educate the vast majority of those who reject such education?

It's wishful thinking to turn those figures around to 85% who would reject it as drivel and only 15% of society believing in it.

But, if we keep working away at it, someday it may just happen. :-D~

Again, I apologize for not putting the story that came with it. I made an assumption and we all know what that does. I found it difficult to watch the entire video, but I did while gritting my teeth. You might have noticed the so-called credentials tied with this announcement. When I saw what my pal sent me, I went to Google and search for it by title. I was going to say you'd be surprised how many Christian websites had it posted prominently, but I am sure you could guess that much. Nevertheless, like intelligent design, I wonder how any sane person can compartmentalize such drivel without their heads exploding from the cognitive dissonance.

Cenek,  Some of the supporters of Cosmic or Universal Consciousness call themselves Atheists, yet they have this notion of spirituality in all living things which is very vague.

When really pressed, by rational consideration, they admit that they see all nature linked by this universal consciousness and guided by one supreme consciousness which essentially is an unnamed deity.  So really they are not Atheists but Theists.

One famous scientist who got nabbed outside his field of research and tried to prove such consciousness exist was Rupert Sheldrake who we here call ShelGoose, who developed an argument called Morphonic Resonance to demonstrate that this consciousness absorbs all knowledge gained before and relays it to all life on the planet. 

In other words, if I discover something or think of something now, the universal consciousness will also learn of this and such knowledge will be available to all life in the universe.   Sort of like a massive knowledge absorbing and relaying computer system.

Though he added later, only relevant knowledge to the particular life form or individual would be relayed, sort of numerous information filters suddenly came into play.

If I discovered the real cause of Gravity, then all scientists around the world would be subconsciously informed of this knowledge and all will know.

He set up several poorly controlled experiments to try and prove his Morphonic Resonance, now referred to as Moronic Reasoning, and never proved any of it.

There are hundreds of Scientists who have been sucked into delusional pseudoscience.

Creationism is full of such numbskulls.

For a couple of hours there, I thought they had stolen Donald's mind.

LOL!   :-D~   Thus I did my usual tactic, Go into Attack to either get them on the defensive or a rational response for posting such nonsense.

Donald, you got me! I listened for the first few screens and began cussing; you twerp! You spread this crap like a chicken farmer spreads shit. I read a couple of comments and became curious so listened to the whole thing; you twerp! You do a great imitation of "Flatten your belly" commercials or "Enliven your sex life" or "Increase your wealth 1,000 times with no risk". You twirp! 

Dog! you are good! you could make a mint hawking goods on radio or TV. You would make people such as I am raving mad, and you would have a following from here to China and back through Europe. You would make a fortune and leave behind a trail of tragic, hollowed out people with no hope and no power. 

Now, how about putting your talent to work to empower people with self-respect, dignity, awareness of suffering; of people able and willing to use all the potential with which they are born for healthy, collaborative living. We need problem solvers, conflict resolvers, active listeners, effective communicators. 

And throw that damned orange button in the trash.

Sorry Donald, My humblest apology:  :-(~

I thought you had flipped your lid, or you had been seduced by those Cosmic Consciousness clowns who the scientist behind that stupidity supports.

Because I've been arguing with those clowns for over a decade now and every now and then they convince a Scientist to believe in them.

Trouble is, scientists are one of the easiest groups to prey on for their stupidity.

Because many scientists are not street smart, they are often enclosed in their field and don't understand (very naive) about thinking outside their field.

Thus a Neurologist who knows shit about Theology, can be sucked into accepting NeuroTheology as a valid field.

When it is indeed not. 

It could be called NeuroDelusional research.

Sorry again M8!

Misread U totally.

Because you had nothing to give us a clue that you didn't believe in any of that nonsense and appeared by the Blog layout to support it wholeheartedly.

You could have at least given us a clue!??

Cenek--That's entirely my fault. This article popped up in Newsmaxx from a friend who thought I might find it humorous and he was right--I did. In my haste to hear the comments, I didn't think to include the story. Mea Culpa! You are absolutely correct.
