 As the author of two books on prayer and psychological healing, it is hard for me
to believe the level of skepticism about prayer in the year 2006. In the Spring of this year,
a new scientific study was released, suggesting that prayer is not really very effective.
Many of my skeptical friends brought it to my attention. “What do you think?” They asked. They were really probing me to see if I had finally come to my senses and give up on this God and prayer stuff. Of course, it did nothing of the kind. This paper is an answer to the negative study and an update of my ideas on prayer and healing.

 I was trained as a psychologist in the
1970s. I liked psychoanalysis, especially the
ideas of Karen Horney, M.D. I thought that
if I was completely analyzed, a la Horney,
that I would be completely mentally hea
lthy. I had been exposed to some “New Age”
thought in my training-but I thought psychoana
lysis was the answer.
Religion and prayer
were under no consideration as relevant to
my life or the thera
py I conducted with
patients.

As I entered the 1980s, the New Age Material was gaining ground.
Psychoanalysis wasn’t enough for me. I practi
ced transcendental
meditation, read the
“Seth material” which said that we “create
our own reality” as pa
rt of “All That Is”
(God). Thus, my new concept of God was that
we are all God (not to be confused with
the ego). However, prayer is
not addressed in this philosophy
. Rather, releasing negative
beliefs and affirming positive beliefs to replace
them was suggested. We are told that we
“are much more than we think we are.” In ot
her words we are more than just bodies with
egos. This was an integration of body mind a
nd spirit, but I did not really see it as
spiritual. I saw it as psychological. There wa
s some change in my therapeutic outlook,
but it did not include prayer.
