The Power of Prayer

by David Sunfellow

Near-death experiences champion prayer as a super power.

Here are a few quotes from near-death experiencers that illustrate the power — […]

Dr. Yvonne Kason – What I Learned From My Four Near-Death Experiences

by David Sunfellow

Harriet Tubman, The Black Moses

by David Sunfellow

“As an adolescent, Tubman suffered a severe head injury when an overseer threw a two-pound metal weight at another slave who was attempting to flee. The weight struck Tubman instead, which she said ‘broke my skull.’ Bleeding and unconscious, she was returned to her owner’s house and laid on the seat of a loom, where she remained without medical care for two days. After this incident, Tubman frequently experienced extremely painful headaches. She also began having seizures and would seemingly fall unconscious, although she claimed to be aware of her surroundings while appearing to be asleep. This condition remained with her for the rest of her life; Larson suggests she may have suffered from temporal lobe epilepsy as a result of the injury.”
