CHICAGO (Reuters) - by Michael Conlon

***"A study of more than 1,800 patients who underwent heart bypass surgery has failed to show that prayers specially organized for their recovery had any impact, researchers said on Thursday.

In fact, the study found some of the patients who knew they were being prayed for did worse than others who were only told they might be prayed for – though those who did the study said they could not explain why."***
