I did my CPE at St. Luke’s Hospital (one of the sites that participated in the prayer study).  I remember this factor of outside uncontrollable factors such as other unrelated to the study praying for study participants making prayer as a factor in healing difficult to fully measure.  If we think about the power of belief, then to me that helps with the idea of praying and a powerful intervention, even if we can not accurately measure it according to scientific method standards.
