Sure, pray away birth defects, the results of diseases, the effects of poverty and abuse. Pray all of these away all day and all night and nothing will change. Action to help or to support works much better than words, even words spoken to a God. My child's spinal bifida, Kawasaki's Syndrome and joblessness is not helped by prayer.
