Cardiologist Randolph Byrd at San Francisco General Hospital performed a double
blind study of patients in that hospital's cardiac care unit. Patients were
randomly assigned to one of two groups ... those receiving intercessory prayer
by committed Christians unknown to them and those not receiving intercessory
prayer. Neither patient, physician, nor hospital staff knew the group to which a
given patient belonged. Those being prayed for had fewer cases of congestive
heart failure, fewer cardiopulmonary arrests, and fewer cases of pneumonia.
