O Come All Ye Faith­ful

My Weekly Special - - FESTIVE DRAMAS -

Since be­fore the first Christ­mas, prayers have been said to pro­mote good health and al­le­vi­ate ill­ness. How­ever, stud­ies of the power of faith are con­tra­dic­tory rang­ing from no ef­fect, to both im­prov­ing and wors­en­ing out­comes. Crit­ics and scep­tics dis­agree about whether prayer works, and whether any heal­ing that hap­pens is co­in­ci­den­tal or due to the placebo ef­fect. Re­gard­less of science, many peo­ple be­lieve faith can move moun­tains.
