23. What I find interesting here
is the mixed results regarding the effects of prayer. Here's one study that has been published and suggests some prayer effects:

Harris WS, Gowda M, Kolb JW, et al. A randomized, controlled trial of the effects of remote intercessory prayer on outcomes in patients admitted to the coronary care unit. Arch Intern Med 1999;159:2273-2278.

You can find it online along with followups...but you will have to register

There's still debate even within that journal about what the study truly showed, and if there were significant flaws.
