Does Praying for Someone Work?

Praying For Work Nearer To Home

There have been many small-scale investigations into whether or not prayer works – most of them by believers, and most of them using poor research methods or poor statistical techniques.

Christian publishers and evangelical journals produce volumes of stories of prayers that have been answered1 – always in the affirmative – by God. The most basic next step would be to compare these to how many have not been answered, in order to see if it is mere luck that some events go favourably.

Don't forget that “people speak confidently about the power of prayer, but in war both sides pray for victory“2. All the larger studies, and the well-controlled ones, show that prayer has no effect on the world.

The largest study, ran mostly sensibly by a Christian think tank, found to their own embarrassment that not only did prayer have no effect on cardiac patients but that by telling one of the groups that they were being prayed for, they made their recovery worse by making them worry more.3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

Aside from individual effects, because of the large volume of prayers that occur in the world, their cumulative effects should be statistically observable. But no such evidence can be found. Prayer doesn't help individual patients, and, it has no effect on overall national welfare rates10.

1. Scientific Studies of Prayer

#prayer #science

The Nobel-prize winning physicist scientist, Victor Stenger, has researched the possible effects of prayer on the real world and presents some of his results in “God, the Failed Hypothesis: How Science Shows That God Does Not Exist11“. He says that “the effects of prayer should be readily measurable [..

.] but, once again, we find that none of the reports is convincing. […] Every published claim of a positive effect of which I am aware fails to satisfy one or more [sensible] methodological conditions. […] With all the publicity that attends to prayer studies, it is highly unly any good quality study has been missed”5.

Kenneth W. Krause in the Skeptical Inquirer (2008)3 highlights some more studies: MANTRA (Monitoring and Actualization of Noetic Training) and the MANTRA II studies published by Mitchell Krucoff and others in 2001 and 2005, later published in The Lancet, involved 748 angioplasty or cardiac catheterization patients. The experiments confirmed that prayer had no effect.

And, earlier:

“In 1982 Randolph Byrd, MD, a San Francisco cardiologist, enlisted 393 cardiac patients in the San Francisco General Hospital into a double-blind, randomized study to determine whether intercessory prayer, directed to the Judeo-Christian God, had any effect on their medical condition. […] Byrd identified six categories in which the prayed-for group did marginally better. The press reported these six categories as proof of the power of prayer, but of course that leaves twenty categories in which patients did not do better and may have done worse.”

Superstition: Belief in the Age of Science by Robert L. Park (2008)7

1.1. Francis Galton (1872)

#prayer

The early scientist Sir Francis Galton, Charles Darwin's cousin, was the first to analyse statistically whether or not praying for people works4,8. He published his results in “Statistical Inquiries into the Efficacy of Prayer” in 18728.

“[He] calculated the average longevity of British monarchs and archbishops of the Church of England.

Since the Daily Order for Prayer of the Anglican Church calls for prayers for the long life of the monarch and for the archbishop, Galton pointed out that they must surely be the most prayed-for people in all of England.

Because these powerful people would have access to the best medical care, you might expect monarchs and archbishops to live longer than ordinary folk, with or without intercessory prayers on their behalf.

Galton, however, discovered that on average they lived no longer than their subjects. Perhaps that reflects the pitiful state of medical knowledge in Victorian England. In any case, as Galton showed, intercessory prayer did not prolong the lives of British monarchs and archbishops.”

Superstition: Belief in the Age of Science by Robert L. Park (2008)8

“Francis Galton… noted that every Sunday, in churches throughout Britain, entire congregations prayed publicly for the health of the royal family.

Shouldn't they, therefore, be unusually fit, compared with the rest of us, who are prayed for only by our nearest and dearest? Galton looked into it, and found no statistical difference.

His intention may, in any case, have been satirical, as also when he prayed over randomized plots of land to see if the plants would grow any faster (they didn't).”

The God Delusion by Prof. Richard Dawkins (2006)4

1.2. The John Templeton Foundation's Great Prayer Experiment (2006)

#christianity #USA

A large prayer study was orchestrated by The John Templeton Foundation, whose purpose it is to further the spread of Christianity3.

It was called the Study of the Therapeutic Effects of Intercessory Prayer (STEP) and amidst high expectations it was known as 'The Great Prayer Experiment'. The study was led by Dr Herbert Benson, of the Mind/Body Medical Institute near Boston, USA4.

The study lasted almost a decade9 and involved 1802 patients who were recovering from heart surgery3,4. It is introduced below by Prof. Richard Dawkins:

“Valiantly shouldering aside all mockery, the team of researchers […] soldiered on, spending $2.4 million of Templeton money. […] Prayers were delivered by the congregations of three churches, one in Minnesota, one in Massachusetts and one in Missouri.”

The God Delusion by Prof. Richard Dawkins (2006)4

The results were published in the American Heart Journal in 2006 Apr4,9, showing how each of the 3 groups of patients were helped (or not) by the prayers:

  • Group 1: Received prayers, but were not told about them. This tests if prayers helped them recover more than normal patients. Their recovery was average.
  • Group 2: Received no prayers, and were not told so. This tested if there was something about the experiment that was affecting the results. Their recovery was also average.
  • Group 3: Received prayers and were told so. This tested the psychosomatic effects of knowing that one is being prayed for. This group “suffered significantly more complications“.

The prayers had no positive effect3,4,9. This was embarrassing for the researchers (and Templeton fans) but madly entertaining for many observers.

“This was the largest and most rigorous study of the efficacy of prayer that had ever been attempted […]. The conclusion of the study was that prayers offered by strangers had no effect on the recovery of people undergoing heart surgery. […

] The only surprise was that a slight increase in complications was found in a subset of patients who were told that strangers were praying for them. The knowledge that they were being prayed for seemed to interfere with healing [and] was attributed by the authors to “performance anxiety.” Presumably, being on God´s team put them under greater stress.

It raised a question about whether it was a good idea to let people know they were being prayed for. Otherwise, there was no difference.”

Superstition: Belief in the Age of Science by Robert L. Park (2008)9

One of the STEP researchers, Dr Charles Bethea, says that those who knew they were being prayed for suffered more stress because they worried more about their own condition, and evolutionary biologist Prof. Richard Dawkins agrees4 as does the academic scientist Robert K. Park9. What amazing results! In conclusion, Prof. Dawkins asks a light-hearted theological question:

“Was God doing a bit of smiting, to show his disapproval of the whole barmy enterprise?”

The God Delusion by Prof. Richard Dawkins (2006)4

2. Social Studies: Is There Evidence That One Religion's Prayers Are Being Answered More Than Others?

#estonia #hinduism #islam #judaism #poland #prayer #religion #vietnam

“The Muslim has experienced his own prayer successes that confirmed to him that Allah is the only true god. What about Jews who pray in their particular way to their god? They say their prayers get answered too. Millions of Hindus claim positive results from their prayers.”

50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God
Guy Harrison (2008)6

If prayer worked, then, it should be apparent that highly religious countries have a statistically detectable betterment of their lives and fortunes in some areas of life.

In 50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God12, Guy Harrison argues that the prayers that are the most heartfelt, passionate, honest and sincere are those of a mother for her own infants.

So, if we compare poor countries, infant mortality should be negatively correlated with belief in God. But the data shows this to be untrue.

14

“… there are many highly religious nations with horrible infant mortality rates. Meanwhile, highly secular nations with large percentages of atheists in their populations have very low infant mortality rates.”

50 Reasons People Give for Believing in a God by Guy Harrison (2008)6

The chart above shows the Infant Mortality Rate, measured in deaths per 1000 live births, against the rate of god-belief. All developed countries sit along the bottom, no matter what their level of belief in God is. For example, Poland has a good infant mortality rate of 4/1000, and only 3% of the population disbelieve in God.

Nearby Estonia has a similar infant mortality rate (3/1000) but a full half of the population do not believe in God. This means that richer countries experience better infant mortality rates, and prayer does not make a difference to them. A huge number of poor countries, where rate of belief in God is very high, sit along the left.

This means that in poor countries, infant mortality rate is high, and, so is the extent to which mothers are praying for their children. This means that praying, compassionately and desperately, for the health of their own children does not work. But the ultimate comparison is within demographic areas.

Very poor countries such as Vietnam have the same infant mortality rate as their near neighbours, but, have a completely different rate of praying (due to a high level of disbelief in God).

What this shows us is that internationally, on average, and, compared to their neighbours, rich and poor countries' infant mortality rates are not affected by the rate of belief in God. In other words, prayer is making no difference.

Work from Home Jobs for Beginners — No Experience Required!

Praying For Work Nearer To Home

You don’t need years and years of remote work under your belt to find, and land, home-based jobs.

True, some work from home jobs require tons of previous experience, advanced degrees, or extensive work history. And these types of jobs are usually for certain industries web development, human resources, SEO, marketing, teaching, healthcare, etc.

But, there are quite a few online jobs titles that are beginner-friendly — ones that value skill over experience. So, if you’re worried that lack of experience will keep you from landing a work from home job — think again! Check out these no experience jobs from home that are perfect for beginners. 

Do You Really Have No Experience?

Chances are, you have some existing skills or experience that translates well to working from home. No, you may not have worked previously as an online moderator or home-based customer service rep, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have any work from home skills or experience.

And that’s great news because there are plenty of work from home jobs that will choose candidates skills and talent and not your work history.

Work from Home Skills You Probably Have

So, what are some common skills that can make you a standout entry-level remote worker?

  • Sales
  • Customer service
  • Writing
  • Admin/Clerical
  • Online research
  • Fast & accurate typist

I’m gonna bet that there’s at least one thing on that list you can do well — and the more things you know, the better your chances are of landing a no-experience required home-based jobs.

Entry-Level Work from Home Jobs

Now that you know that you do have some work from home skills, let’s look at some popular beginner-friendly home jobs. Remember, experience and skills are two very different things.

Although these jobs don’t require previous experience, they often require a certain set of skills. That’s why many beginner-friendly companies require candidates to pass and take skills tests to prove they’ve got what it takes. Ready? Let’s go!

Search Engine Evaluator

As a search engine evaluator, you may work with one of the larger search engines, Google or Bing, and rate the relevancy of search results a query.

To do this well, you’ve got to have a pretty good understanding of current events and pop culture. I always use Paris Hilton as an example. If someone types “Paris Hilton” in a search engine, chances are, they’re looking for information about Paris Hilton, the socialite, not Hilton hotels in Paris, France.

Similarly, if a user types “apple discount” they’re probably not looking for amazing deals on fresh fruit but rather looking for promos on Apple products iPads or iPhones.

Search engines need to “learn” these things, and as a search engine evaluator, you’ll be their teacher.

Appen

A global company, Appen regularly has search engine evaluator and social media evaluator positions available on their careers page. You can get in here as long as you pass a practice test.

Leapforce

Leapforce prefers candidates with bachelor’s degrees or degrees in progress. However, you don’t need any experience to be a search engine evaluator or personalized search engine evaluator here.

Lionbridge

There’s several no-experience-required jobs to choose from — usually broken down by state. Check out their career page to see if they’re hiring for everything from search engine evaluator to personalized social media assessor.

iSoftStone

Help improve Bing when you work from home as an ads evaluator or search engine analyst at iSoftStone. Experience isn’t necessary but you must be able to pass a series of practice tests!

Data Entry

Ah, data entry, one of the most sought after work from home jobs there is. It’s true that you don’t need any experience to get paid for data entry work. However, it does help if you’re a fast and accurate typist. After all, the quicker you work, the more you’ll earn with online data entry jobs!

It’s important to note that legitimate work from home data entry jobs are few and far between. Beware if you come across a company advertising home-based data entry positions that isn’t on this list.

The Smart Crowd

Formerly Virtual Bee, The Smart Crowd is part of Lionbridge (the search engine evaluation company mentioned above). There’s a short qualification test to take before you can key work for pay. Pay rate is low ($0.60 for each 1,000 characters keyed). Consider this an extra income opportunity!

SigTrack

Process voter registrations and petition signatures when you work from home for SigTrack. No experience required, but it’s helpful to have two monitors to increase your speed and accuracy.

Moderation

It’s time consuming to manage an online presence, especially for larger businesses. That’s why many companies choose to use a moderation service. And, this is good news for entry-level online job seekers since several of these companies hire beginners!

Crisp Thinking

Crisp Thinking looks for freelance moderators who come from a variety of backgrounds since they work with a clients across many industries. Simply fill out their short survey so they can get to know you better.

ModSquad

Joining the ModSquad doesn’t require previous moderation experience. But you must be comfortable with digital engagement and be familiar with social media, chat, and forums.

LiveWorld

LiveWorld works with some big-name companies from around the world. Many of their moderator openings don’t require experience (although preference is give to those who do). If you’re bilingual, you’ve got an even better chance of finding entry-level work here.

Transcription

Transcribing is one of the most beginner-friendly work from home jobs out there. For one, there’s quite a bit of work to go around. And two, there’s a number of companies that give newbie typists a chance.

I’ve covered no-experience-necessary transcription jobs quite a bit already. If you think you’d to give typing a try, check out these 19 transcription companies that will hire beginners. You might also want to read my complete beginner’s guide to work from home typing jobs. Both articles are a great place to start if you want to get paid to type — no experience required.

Virtual Assistant

Let’s face it, sometimes there’s just not enough hours in the day to get everything done. That’s why busy professionals and small business owners outsource parts of their to-do lists to virtual assistants.

The VA industry has seen tremendous growth in recent years — and shows no signs of stopping. With no shortage of companies that hire VAs, beginners have a couple of options to get their foot in the door in this popular work from home profession.

Getting paid to write is more about talent than experience. So, needless to say, this is a very beginner-friendly way to earn money online. The road to freelance writing success isn’t always glamorous.

But, nonetheless, anybody with a desire to write for a living can.

Go into freelance writing with an open mind, and look at these entry-level writing sites as a paid writing internship — you’ll get to earn while honing your skills.

Grading/Scoring

Review essays, grade tests, and offer feedback to help students as an entry-level grader or scorer. Given the nature of work, these opportunities are usually seasonal. But, when work is available, there’s typically plenty to go around.
