Study shows prayer may truly heal the sick


WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A lot of people find solace in praying for their loved ones when they are sick or undergoing surgery.

But a new study suggests those prayers may truly be answered if you're in close proximity to the patient.

The study from Indiana University looked at a small group of people in Africa who had trouble seeing or hearing.

Researchers found that when people said healing prayers physically close to the patients, some saw improvements in their conditions.

It's unclear how it might work, researchers say more study is needed.
