People have the IPad and the IPhone. Spindrift has the IPray.

Testing people's prayers in a lab was considered fringe science, but the tests caused a prayer-a-digm shift.

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 used 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 research the question "Does the imprint of prayer do anything?" They began to test prayer.

What was discovered? The premise was that loving prayers subtly nudge disorder toward order. Bruce and John contrasted two makers that showed the quality of the order produced from two motives of prayers. They also supplied a theory about the subconscious mind hacking the memory to forget convincing details about our spiritual and psychic experiences.

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

Before 9/11, Spindrift urged people to listen carefully to the violent words in the prayers of Islamic terrorists. In contrast to toxic terrorist prayers, Spindrift favored bringing back and testing positive prayers in the schools.

This book, "A Journey Into Prayer," documents the inspiring and cautionary true story of Bruce and John Klingbeil, a father and son team of devout Christian Scientists who dared to test their faith in the power of prayer, and of Spindrift, the research organization that helped to support their efforts. The story describes the Klingbeils’ courage and personal commitment to learn the truth about the efficacy of prayer, their self-taught but ingenious experiments, the staggering hostility they attracted from both the religious and the scientific communities, and ultimately, the unbearable poignancy in their untimely and mysterious deaths.
