Survey: Many believe in divine intervention

The Associated Press (seen on CNN) has an article about how most people believe that God will save people’s lives:

When it comes to saving lives, God trumps doctors for many Americans.

An eye-opening survey reveals widespread belief that divine intervention can revive dying patients. And, researchers said, doctors “need to be prepared to deal with families who are waiting for a miracle.”

Recently, my mother was quite ill, and ended up in the hospital for 62 days. She was given a few blessings before various procedures, and is now well on her way to recovery. She has had 5 doctors tell her she’s lucky to be alive. The latest doctor to see her said that he has never had a patient go through what she has and live. He said he has never heard of anyone go through what she went through and live.

I guess the bottom line is… count me in the group that believes “God trumps doctors”!
