Pray Yourself to a Healthier Life

You may have heard this already, but statistics are trending that the more religious you are (often defined as attending a religious service) the happier and healthier you will be.

Check out this report ripped from the Huffington Post "Very Religious People Score Higher in Health Self-Evaluations, According to Study" by Jaweed Kaleem.

The survey, conducted between January 2, 2010 and December 30, 2011, also broke down responses by religion, and found that Jewish interviewees scored higher in health scores compared to other religious groups when comparisons were made between people in the same categories of religiosity.

Note the video at the bottom on "The Role of Prayer in a Patient's Healing".  Perhaps this is why we are pressuring kids to pray even if we aren't sure that they will connect spiritually; at least they'll be healthier for their efforts!
