Appendix A: Recent Research Findings About Prayer

Appendix B: Additional Information on Using Prayer for Physical Healing

Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, author of the bestseller KITCHEN TABLE WISDOM, says, "This book is a night light for anyone, Jewish or not, who has ever struggled in the dark to become the person they hope to be. I support Dr. Felder's approach for helping us find strength and wholeness."

SEVEN PRAYERS THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE is intended for readers from all levels of spiritual involvement and affiliation. To see how you might benefit from reading and applying some or all of the chapters in this book, consider which of the following descriptions sound like you or someone you know:

1) Have you recited certain prayers for years and often wondered what they really mean, where they come from, or how they actually work?

2) Have you found some prayers confusing, uncomfortable, or upsetting because you disagree with what they seem to be saying?

3) Is there a problem in your life right now that you would like to pray about, but you're not sure what words to use or how to be most effective?

4) Do you long for a deeper connection with your spiritual side or with God, but you haven't been able to find sufficient time or the right words to open up as fully as you'd like?

5) Are you looking for ways to use prayer to become a better person or to assist in the healing or recovery of yourself or someone you care about?

6) Do you have a rich inner life but want to go even deeper into the realms of prayer or meditation?

7) Are you a parent, grandparent, teaching or concerned person who wants to make sure the next generation receives a more inspiring introduction to prayer and spirituality than you did?

From the Author:

Since 1980 there have been more than 200 scientific studies on the usefulness of prayer for improving one's physical health, emotional well-being, and sense of personal effectiveness. Most of these studies confirm that prayer is a subtle but powerful tool for helping a person become more connected to what matters most in his or her life. Repeated evidence from numerous research studies indicate that deeply felt prayers not only can help you feel strong and more focused inside, but they can also improve how you deal with difficult people and situations in your daily life.

As a psychologist with a lifelong interest in spiritual concerns, I wanted to see for myself whether or not prayer and meditation could help the people who came to my office for counseling and support. So for nearly 20 years I've been researching directly with my patients how certain prayers can assist us in our daily lives and personal struggles. I have observed many of my patients achieve remarkable results. There are no guarantees, however, and I have found that prayer is not about imposing your will or your ego on a situation. Rather it's about going deeply inside and connecting with a source of profound energy and support that is hard to describe or measure.

In my own life there are prayers that have felt empty and prayers that bring tears to my eyes each time I say them. There are prayers I didn't understand fully at first and prayers that speak to the depths of my soul.

I have selected seven remarkable prayers that I strongly believe can assist you in some crucial areas of your life. My hope is that you and the people you care about will use these prayers and teachings for good purposes to create healing and repair in your own lives and in the world around you. These prayers are a gift that you and I can learn to use more fully. I hope they will bring many blessings to you and the people you love.
