Prayer! It's Almost Like Doing Something.
As I mention in my book, I challenged my wife to a Pray-Off for a month. She prayed to Jahweh, the Father, in Jesus name, and I prayed to the lamp in my living room. We kept track of what we were praying for and how well our prayers were answered. It was a draw. I would be willing to run the same challenge again for any length of time. The only effect of prayer is the hypnotically suggestive power it has on our brains.
