Science Finally Proves It:

Prayer Changes Your Brain

in 4 Astonishing Ways . . .

Millions of Americans believe prayer works. . . Yet the mainstream media tends to avoid the subject altogether.

But our Mind Health Report team at Newsmax Health wanted answers to questions like these:

  1. Can modern science explain prayer?
  2. Does praying strengthen your brain and prevent mental decline?
  3. What benefits, if any, does prayer offer you — physically, mentally, and emotionally?

To this end, the team went out to the scientific and medical community to learn the potential benefits of prayer — and what they found both surprised and excited all of us here at The Mind Health Report.

The results were so startling, in fact, we created a FREE video presentation to share with you exactly what we discovered.

When you watch this FREE video, you’ll discover how prayer actually changes four distinct areas of your brain. In fact, you’ll see exactly how prayer or other spiritual practices increase activity in the areas of your brain that are most helpful to you, and diminish activity in areas that are less helpful — or even harmful.

You’ll also see:

  • How a specific amount of “prayer time” per day can help prevent memory loss, mental decline, and even dementia or Alzheimer’s . . .
  • The #1 prayer pitfall that can actually make you sick if you’re not careful (this is one of the most important bits of wisdom you’ll ever gain) . . .
  • 47 scientifically proven benefits of prayer, including pain relief, reduced risk of death from heart attack or stroke, lessened anxiety or depression, and more . . .
  • And much, much more . . .

Dennis--my grandmother had an off-color statement she voiced to me many times and that was "shit in one hand and pray in the other and see which fills up first." I didn't understand it at six-years-old, but I remembered it and it didn't take long to understand.

Not being a theist any longer I can see no benefits coming from bowing your head, closing your eyes, and starting to talk to yourself.

I think you are correct!

I guess Christians are jealous in the area of spiritual practices, and they don't think of meditation as Christian.  It's also much more individualistic than prayer, and in many ways religions still oppose a personal search for truth.

Perhaps, you are correct. I can see no other reason someone would want to ban the practice. I would even think Christians would see the connection between fervent prayer and meditation, or, maybe that is, indeed, the reason they feel threatened by it as you said.

I saw a list of things good Christians shouldn't do and meditation made the list.

It's interesting to contemplate why Christians would be averse to meditating.
Years ago, a Christian made that "Meditation is of the devil" comment to me.  I - or who "I" was then - was encountering terrifying things in my meditation, and that comment bothered me a lot, because it made me afraid that I would be harmed if I kept on meditating through the terror. 

Perhaps because meditation can bring up unconscious and repressed things, Christians are afraid of encountering the real truth under their beliefs.  Or perhaps they are afraid that meditation would cause them to experience the clash of cognitive dissonance. 

The very Christian guy I mentioned, who did a kind of God-focused meditation, told me that when his father died, he was unaccountably happy for about a day.  His father beat him a lot when he was a child, and he may have been happy because his father could not ever beat him again - without being aware of why he was happy.  He became a very devoted Christian as a way of trying to cope with having been treated so horribly.

Religious people might call what is really a kind of meditation, prayer, because of approval of "prayer" and prejudice against "meditation" in their social circles.  I've heard Christians say things like "meditation is of the devil" and warning against the Buddhist chants at Zen centers, as if they might be harmful.

Prayer is a fervent wish and achieves the same results--none! However, I am a social animal and when my Christian and Muslim friends say they will say a prayer for me, I always thank them for their kindness, while thinking how about bringing me done pain medication for my illness. Now, that would be greatly appreciated and kind. Of course if asked for my opinion, I will certainly give if with no "window dressing."

Meditation is certainly not "wishing fervently", although that may be often what prayer is.  The meditation I'm talking about is "sitting with" one's consciousness for about half an hour to an hour.  One goes into a kind of trance and things that were unconscious tend to surface, like one's buried feelings.  It's very important to be in touch with oneself in that way!  I don't meditate recently - my allergies get in the way. 

I used to spend time at a Zen center, and they talked about religious people meditating on God.  A very Christian guy I used to know, started to sit in his yard communing with God, and what he was doing sounded like a kind of meditation - "sitting with" his own awareness, which included his God-idea.  Likely what he was doing, included repressing doubts and a lot of emotions, and an internal pressure to focus on the God-idea - but nonreligious people also have internal pressures and repressions.
