Healing prayers and rituals are among the oldest traditions of humankind.  Even today, many congregations offer special healing services, often reclaiming the ancient practices of anointing and laying on of hands.  We are only beginning to understand the link between belief and wellness, let alone the energetic impact of intercessory prayer.  As advanced as the science of medicine is, we do well to remain humble in the face of all we do not know about healing.
