Why do people pray? In my opinion, Prayer is talking to God and Meditation is listening to God. I am not saying "no thanks" to anyone who offers the gift of their prayers and whatever magic that may bring Chris's way. People pray for others - intercessory prayer - because they care. They do it for people they love and for complete strangers. They want to help hurting people, but in many cases there's not much they can do. In your case, Chris is likely getting the best medical treatment available. So we pray for him, and you. Now the non-theists are likely going to say - "what a waste of time". But not so. You and Chris know that there are people out there who care. People out there who really love and want for you and Chris to be healed. People out there are thinking about you. This is important for you to know.That is how I think intercessory prayer does some good. It's not about miracles.
