Private prayer is the one communication that the government can't hear.

Comic Paul Dean said, "The nice thing about meditation is that it makes doing nothing look respectable." Bill Maher, the host of "Real Time" on HBO, said that prayer does nothing. One argument applied to prove that prayer does nothing is to point to the disaster, war, and evil in the world.

We hear about failures to heal evil, but do we hear about subsets of evil being healed? Can any subclass of prayer make sense to a modern world? In 1969, Bruce and John Klingbeil began to test the question "Does the inflow and imprint of prayer do anything?"

What was discovered? Loving prayers subtly nudge disorder toward order. Bruce and John contrasted two makers that showed the quality produced from two motives that drive prayers. They also supplied a new theory about why the subconscious mind hacks our memories to forget or change some details about our spiritual and psychic experiences.

The father and son founded Spindrift Inc. to support education and research in the fields of consciousness, prayer, and spirituality. They saw the scientific method as a path-finder for the prayer forces. Bruce and John worked as Christian Science practitioners.

Before 9/11, the Spindrift staff urged people to become serious about the negative words in the toxic prayers of Islamic terrorists.

Bill Sweet's excellent book "A Journey Into Prayer" offers compelling evidence for the efficacy of healing prayer in the vegetable kingdom. He describes dozens of successful laboratory experiments investigating the growth of plants, yeast, and mold, spanning more than two decades. He also describes the passionate conflict between the researchers at Spindrift and the "believers," who feel that prayer is a matter of faith, not to be investigated in the laboratory.
