The Science of Prayer

Southern Salon: a podcast about culture & communication

May 27 2020 • 30 mins

Wall Street Journal columnist Elizabeth Bernstein joins us to talk about her recent article on the science of prayer. Research shows that prayer-in any form-has health benefits, particularly when we find what we feel is a safe space to pray, and we see it as a collaborative practice. Bernstein talks about the research to support the advantages of praying, and shares her own powerful story about what inspired the topic for this column.
