This is the third report in our series on prayer. In the first of two parts broadcast today, we examine the power of prayer in healing, Robert Siegel looks at an old Jewish prayer that's undergoing a bit of a revival. It's called the Mi Shebeirach, the Prayer of Healing. Robert speaks with people from a Maryland congregation about why they say the prayer, and what effect they hope it will have.
