Please don’t pray for me

An amazingly silly new study, “the largest of it’s kind”, announced today that prayer doesn’t help. If you have heart problems, an attack, or surgery, you’re screwed no matter who is praying for you.

researchers found that having people pray for heart bypass surgery patients had no effect on their recovery. In fact, patients who knew they were being prayed for had a slightly higher rate of complications.

Researchers emphasized that their work can’t address whether God exists or answers prayers made on another’s behalf. The study can only look for an effect from prayers offered as part of the research, they said.

They also said they had no explanation for the higher complication rate in patients who knew they were being prayed for, in comparison to patients who only knew it was possible prayers were being said for them.

No word on who will be praying for the idiots that sponsored this study. Nor whether it will have any effect on their decision making process in the future.
