It has now been scientifuically proven that prayer helps people to recover and even be cured of illness. It is my belief that we should all pick a day and time and pray for our healing and the healing of others with herpes, with a strong focus on a cure. There is certainly something to be said for belief and mass consciousness. We will build up others as well as ourselves. :)

hello ..im just curious, but what material do u have/knowOf that "scientifically" proves prayer...?

Dont get me wrong - i myself pray, but i also have read alot of science

materials and have a keen scientific interest too.

What i know for sure is that there is such thing as "mind over matter", that positive thought and hope does wonders for the human body - whether that comes from optimism or faith or positive self re-inforcement.. its sometimes theorised that when ppl pray to maintain hope and do get well again, that it may infact be a case of mind over matter - prayer being the vehicle for that.

So basically, if you are able to disclose this "scientific proof" i would be keen to read it - as it would not only be helpful to my own spiritual development, it appeals to my scientific curiousities and would also be handy for referring my other similarly curious-minded friends (all of which enjoy science - some often pray while others not so much and a few that dont pray at all)

Even if you arent able to disclose the "scientific proof" you typed about in your post - i still commend you for your obviously kind and well meaning intentions. :wink:

guest #2, you are asking for scientific evidence for prayers effectiveness in treating disease. Go to http://www.merkaba.org/sundays-scientific.php and check out some of the studies done on this subject. My story doesn't count as "scientific" evidence but God has been very active in my life in regards to healing. Read it or not, it is up to you, but here goes:

Prayer has been an absolutely critical part of coping with this disease. I wouldn't be managing this at all without God's constant presence and assurance that I am of tremendous value to him no matter what is going on in my life. I do not have a history of emotional stability. Have tried to commit suicide a few times late teens, early twenties. I used to pinch, scratch and cut myself to distract myself from all the emotional pain I was suffering. I really believed that my parents took care of me because I was an unpleasant duty not because they found any pleasure in having me as their daughter. I, unfortunately, also believed that God saw me the same way. I have lived most of my adult life in a seriously depressed state. God has had a huge job getting through all the misconceptions I had bout Him because I am extremely stubborn, but He has been faithful in continuing to communicate his perfect love for me. I have been off anti-depressants now for three years because God has performed a major miracle in my life. I am now convinced that I am precious to Him, a constant delight just as my kids are to me and that every tear I cry is cried by Him as well. I am not happy to be going through this but when it becomes too overwhelming for me, I crawl on His lap (so to speak) and just let his love roll over me and through me. When I'm too weak to hang on to him, I just ask Him to hang on to me. He isn't letting me down. My husband, though he is trying, is really having a difficult time providing support and I really didn't have any person to help me carry this, yet God has even met that need through this site. I know that the "God" subject can offend and I hope, I hope, I hope this posting doesn't, but sometimes all the "scientific" evidence we get is the testimony of others.

I would love to share more if anyone is interested. As for prayer, I am already there. I do find that I have to remind myself that sometimes healing takes different forms; sometimes it's physical, sometimes it's emotional and sometimes it's spiritual. I am asking for it all. I want this thing to go away permanently to the point that I will be participating in HBOT as soon as I can manage and will explore other cures, but God is sovereign so he gets to choose. Thankfully I have learned that His choice will be based on His perfect love for me.

If anyone has any specific prayer requests, e-mail me at absolutelyall4him@yahoo.com.

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
