40. Even from a theological standpoint, I wouldn't expect this prayer to work
I mean, basically they separated patients into two groups, one that was prayed for by strangers and one that wasn't. The recovery rates of the two groups was not statistically different.

Imagine if God really was swayed by the numbers of people praying for someone, drawn on a lottery basis like this. This is more like magic than religion. It amazes me that religious people take stuff like this seriously.
