Do you need prayer?We at the MD Harris Institute pray in word, in image, and in song. We pray in the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ and in accordance with the Holy Bible. We pray informed by science, by medicine, and by history. Make your request on the Comment Page. The more specific you are, the more effective intercession will be. Be honest, lest your duplicity bring a curse upon your head. Prayer is not something to be trifled with.
