Some of the greatest exploits happening in the church right now are not coming from traditional ministry platforms, as important as they are. They are coming from people who love to dream and pursue God in the context of their unusual gifting. This emphasis is especially conducive to artists and entrepreneurs. Instead of church leaders continually trying to fit round pegs into square holes, they are helping people become free to see how God would use them in their unique place in society. Such freedom is wonderful and contagious.
Most Americans pray for healing
By Adelle M. Banks, Religion News Service, April 22, 2016
(RNS) The vast majority of Americans have prayed for the healing of others and more than 1 in 4 have practiced the laying on of hands, a Baylor University expert reports.
“Outside of belief in God, there may be no more ubiquitous religious expression in the U.S. than use of healing prayer,” said Jeff Levin of the university’s Institute for Studies of Religion in an announcement of his findings.
Prayer, he said, is no “fringe activity,” he added, but rather a frequent form of treatment for medical problems.
“Interestingly, most people who use prayer for healing do so alongside regular medical care, rather than as a substitution, as has been presumed up to now,” Levin said. “Healing prayer is being used more as a complementary treatment rather than as an alternative one.”
Levin’s findings, based on analyses of the Baylor Religion Survey of 1,714 U.S. adults, conducted in 2010, were published last week (April 13) in the Journal of Religion and Health.
* 87 percent have prayed for healing for others.
* 79 percent have prayed for healing for themselves.
* 54 percent have asked for prayers for their health.
* 26 percent have given a “laying on of hands” for healing.
The laying on of hands is a ritual, referred to in the Book of Acts, in which Christians place hands on the person who is the subject of prayer and invoke the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Levin said determining whether the prayers worked was beyond the scope of his research.
