The article by Harris et al1 on the effect of prayer on the outcome in patients admitted to a coronary care unit (CCU) in the October 25 issue of the ARCHIVES, which showed lower (improved) "CCU course scores" of patients who were being prayed for by others, gives us another, much-needed tool for the care of our patients.
